My name is Désirée Grendel

My name is Désirée Grendel. I set up Nordic Translations in 2013. Dutch is my native language and I was introduced to Swedish and other Scandinavian languages at a very young age. I have both Swedish and Dutch nationality. I have been living in Sweden since the year 2000.

I have always been interested in different cultures and their associated languages. At secondary school I studied French, English, German, Ancient Greek and Latin, which has given me a good understanding of languages.

I studied Law at the University of Utrecht and the French-speaking Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium. In my studies I specialised in International Law. In addition, I have followed several linguistic courses.

After my studies, I worked as a lawyer for both governments and for private sector business enterprises in the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden. The sectors I worked in were mainly the pharmaceutical and automotive sectors. I have also taught at universities and colleges in Sweden and in the Netherlands.

Consequently, I have a very good knowledge of legal, business and medical terminology in the Scandinavian and Dutch languages, as well as understanding the cultures of these countries.

In 2013 I decided to focus exclusively on translation work.

Désirée Grendel is a full member of the Swedish Association of Professional Translators (SFÖ)
