My name is Gary Glencross.  I am a member of the Institute of Linguists.  I translate from Swedish, Danish and Norwegian into English.

I have a Master of Arts degree with Honours in Swedish Studies (covering Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic language, literature, history and culture).

I also have a post-grad Diploma in Translation awarded by the Institute of Linguists with Distinctions in Science and Literature. 

I am based in Scotland and I have been translating on a freelance basis for seventeen years.  I have lived and worked in Sweden.

My wife is Swedish and I spend my summers in the south of Sweden toning my language skills.  I also like to travel to the other Scandinavian countries regularly.

I can translate practically anything. Over the last few year, I have done a lot of work for the EU and also translated books on terrorism and intelligence analysis. If you'd like to discuss a piece of work, then give me a call on (0044) 774 700 1500 or e-mail me at

I look forward to working with you!
