What is NEaT?

Nordic Editors and Translators is an organization of editors, translators and language professionals who work in, into or from English.

NEaT was founded by a group of editors and translators who wanted to be able to network, share their knowledge, and promote quality work. We work to cooperate with other associations and to provide seminars and opportunities to meet and discuss issues with other members.

You are eligible to join if you work as a language professional in, into or from English.

Please note that we are not an agency. If you are looking for a translator or an editor, please contact us by email. Perhaps one of our members can help you.

NEaT is run by an elected board and four committees that any member can join. NEaT’s board is elected in our annual general meeting, usually in April. The board elected at the 2024 AGM which serves until the 2025 AGM consists of the following professionals:

Chair: Kate Sotejeff-Wilson (LinkedIn)
