Eriksen Translations was born in 1986 when founder Vigdis Eriksen turned her career as a Norwegian translator into a business. In a Brooklyn artist loft, equipped with a few typewriters and a passionate team of linguists, Vigdis founded a culture of excellence. Since then, it’s been one continuous evolution. Eriksen has diversified its capabilities, expanded into more than 100 languages, and embraced cutting-edge industry technology to support clients around the world. Today, the heart and soul of the company remains committed to a single principle: exceeding clients’ expectations with creativity, exacting standards, and willingness to learn.

the Sun Horse
Solhästen, the Sun Horse, is a familiar image in Norse mythology. According to legend, he guides the sun on its eternal journey across the skies. As a standard-bearer of exemplary service, Solhästen epitomizes the tradition and spirit of Eriksen. Our logo was adapted from a Bronze Age rock carving discovered on the west coast of Sweden.
