Clear. Concise. Compelling.
Welcome to Albascan Communications, a boutique language service provider offering translations from the Scandinavian languages and German into elegant, well-written English. I'm Tom Ellett, a Certified Translator based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and I've been helping businesses communicate since 1996.
My core business is creative translations from Swedish to English and Norwegian to English. I also translate into English from Danish and German and offer English copywriting and editing services. I am certified by the American Translators Association (ATA) as a translator of Swedish to English, and by the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario (ATIO) as a translator of Norwegian and Swedish to English.
Whether you need premium copy for publication or a translation for information purposes, I create clear, concise, compelling English text that will persuade and impress your target audience.
“I enable businesses to reach and impress new English-speaking markets by preserving the integrity of their message across linguistic and cultural boundaries.”
— Tom Ellett, Certified Translator and owner of Albascan Communications
Unlike the large, impersonal translation agencies that claim to cover every conceivable language and subject, I focus on what I do best: producing carefully crafted English copy for discerning clients in fields such as advertising, marketing, tourism and culture, where style and substance are equally important.
As well as providing services direct to end-clients, I am happy to build mutually beneficial working relationships with like-minded language service providers.
I look forward to working with you!
