About

Hi!

My name is Alice and I am a Swedish-English translator, writer and editor. I was born in Stockholm, Sweden, and have been living, studying and working in the UK since 2012. Swedish is my mother tongue, and I have been in love with the English language for as long as I can remember.

To the right you will find an overview of my education and previous experience. For a more detailed breakdown, connect with me on LinkedIn!
