Welcome to Thume Translations

I am a translator and proofreader.

My latest works include:

Robert E. Howard: Conan. Bind 1.
I am tempted to say finally translated into Danish in book form. Previously we only knew Conan from movies, games and comic books.

Joanna Bolouri: Hjem til jul

Lucy Maud Montgomery: Det Blå Slot
I never even knew that Montgomery had written so much more, than had previously been translated into Danish!

Mark Salisbury: En Kuffert fuld af skabninger
Udforsk filmmagien bag: Fantastiske skabninger og hvor de findes

Cory Doctorow: Little Brother

My introduction to the literary genres began with a love of romances in all shapes and forms and continued to a love of all the fantastic genres.

I became a member of the Danish Authors' Society in the fall 2009, in the sub group Danish Translators' Union. I hold a Masters degree in English with Rhetoric as a minor. I planned my education at Copenhagen University with a view towards translating American and English Children's Literature, Science Fiction and Fantasy into Danish.

Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Awards Have announced the winners 2012. The translation of The Green Jacket got an Honorable mention, but didn't win the main prize.
