Creative Swedish to English Translation

A.A. Prime MA BA (Hons) |


Thanks to the excellent trial translation of my novel Maresi, the book, along with its prequel and sequel, has been widely sold abroad. Passion is such an over-used word, but it is the one I would choose to describe Annie Prime. She is passionate about my books and their translation, and it totally shows in her work. Also, she's a dream to work with, which is always a plus!

Maria Turtschaninoff, author

Many thanks for a BRILLIANT translation! I simply loved it! You really managed to translate the spirit of the book.

Anna-Lena Laurén, author

Congratulations on a beautiful translation, Annie. You have crafted a work and a world here that is totally beguiling and natural in the English language - I so enjoyed it and can't wait for the next volumes.

Linden Lawson, Pushkin Press

The talented Annie Prime is accurate, swift and insightful in her approach, unerring to spot potential weaknesses in a text and helpful in finding solutions. She has an instinctive sense of style and tone, being herself an accomplished linguist and writer. She is conscientious and punctual and very easy to work with.

Fitzrovia Press

Annie Prime is professional and reliable. We have used her services for both proof-reading and copy-editing, and have found her very proficient. Annie has an excellent eye for written style, as well as editing for grammar and clarity. She is a delight to work with.

Annie’s enthusiasm and intelligence made her a delight to work with, and we were extremely happy with the quality of her translation.

Daniel Seton, Pushkin Press

GREAT job! By far - very far - the best translation yet. I'm extremely pleased with it, really good work. And yes, you can quote me on that.

Matrin Holmén, author of Slugger

A translation is no translation, he said, unless it will give you the music of a poem along with the words of it.
