Description

Along with the island of Fur and Skive municipality, Danish energy company EnergiMidt runs the Innovation Fur development project. The project is set to run from 2011 to 2015, and the overall vision is to demonstrate how modern technology and energy saving solutions may contribute to the development of the energy-friendly and sustainable society of the future. The project has attracted a fair degree of international attention, necessitating continuous translations of e.g. presentation folders, press releases, climate accounts and web content from Danish into English. Since 2011 I have carried out a number of translation tasks for EnergiMidt.

It has been my overall aim (as always in my translation work) to achieve a relevant tone of voice and produce translations that do not read as if they are translations. More specifically, the greatest challenge has been finding just the right terms for my English translations when the topic was e.g. various forms of energy, accounting or the official English names of various Danish authorities. To arrive at correct results I therefore continuously confer with my client and also compare with English-language websites on similar topics.
