Nordiska museet

NM_logoNordiska museet is Sweden’s largest cultural history museum, its remit being to add new perspective to social development. Exhibitions, displays, publications, talks, archives and a library all help pass on knowledge that increases awareness of historical contexts and provides greater insight into different cultures. The collections comprise over 1.5 million exhibits – the smallest being a pin and the largest a fire engine.

Assignment:

Comactiva mainly supplies English translations of texts for Nordiska museet’s various exhibitions. Samples of our work include translations for the exhibitions entitled DANDY (22/10 2010-1/5 2011) and GARBAGE (18/2-25/9 2011). The assignments require thorough research into the theme of each exhibition, and the ability to create a well-formulated translation and a vivid style. This also presents an extra challenge as many of the texts are very specific to Swedish culture.
