Polartekst creates dynamic texts that engage the reader

Whether you need a catchy brochure to present your products or company, a smart article for your website, an easy to read user manual for your customers – polartekst can help you! 

We deliver transations of many different types of texts into, from and between the Scandinavian languages. We always bear in mindt that the text should be easy to read and understand, and that the message needs to be crystal clear. 

One might think that a translation should be identical to the source text. However, it is not unusual that the translated text differs quite a lot from the source. What makes a translation good, is not that it is an exact copy of the original, but that it is a text that can be used instead of the source text.

When you read a good translation, you will not notice that it is a translation. It will seem like the text is written in the language you are reading it in!

In addition to the translation of texts we also produce content, tailored to your needs. In the information overload we see on the internet today, it is particularly important to stand out to catch the attention of the reader. We can help you create unique texts that give you the edge you need to succeed.
