About Anja Allwood

I am interested in what happens when texts, languages and cultures interact. In particular, I am interested in translation as a process and a product. I have an MA in translation and have previously worked both as a translator for the European Union and as a freelancer, translating and subtitling.

My Project
My project concerns relay translation (also known as indirect translation, second hand translation or mediated translation) i.e. translations of translations. I analyse to what extent relay translation is used as a means of translation into Swedish in today’s society, between which languages, what the underlying reasons might be and what consequences this can have, for the text itself and for society at large.

I teach “Professional Skills” at the Translators Programme and “Translation” at the Language Consultancy Programme. Between 2009 and 2011 I taught the courses “Reading” and “Pronunciation, Dialogues and Listening Skills” at the first cycle Dutch.

I am a member of the following professional organisations:
SNÖ – Swedish Network for Translation Studies
SFÖ - Swedish Association of Professional Translators
EST – European Society for Translation Studies
