only the best will do



The Nordic Word may only be small, but we're always happy to hear from friendly and professional editors and translators who work with any of the following languages:


  • Danish

  • English

  • Finnish

  • Icelandic

  • Norwegian

  • Swedish


what we expect from you


Our emphasis is on quality, not quantity. It's not about how quickly you deliver, it's about how well you deliver. So forgive us when we say that all we require of you is that you do your very best.


The Nordic Word is voluntarily working towards complying with the standard BS EN 15038 - Translation services - Service requirements. This means that, wherever possible, we comply with the requirements of the standard in our recruitment of freelance translators. In brief, you should be able to evidence one of the following:


  • A recognised qualification in translation studies, or

  • A qualification in another field supplemented with two years of documented translation experience, or

  • Five years of documented translation experience


In addition to the above requirements, we also value membership in a recognised association of translators such as ITI or CIOL in the UK, SFÖ in Sweden, NFF in Norway, or Translatørforeningen in Denmark.


what you can expect from us


We value our translators and editors as much as we do our clients, so there are a few things that you can expect from us in return:


  • An honest and fair price for the work you do

  • Payment within 30 days of sending your invoice

  • Constructive feedback on your work

  • Support and advice from a close and friendly team
