Eksempler på Arlyne Mois oversettelser og språkvask

Examples of Arlyne Moi's translations and proofreads


Translation projects (a selection), updated December 2018

This partial overview of translation projects is divided into the following categories: art, cultural history and other more diverse categories within social science, particularly organization science. My copy-editing and proofreading projects also fall into these categories.

The art-related translations which I do not list below include, but are not limited to, press releases, artist monographs, museum webpages, art school curricula, PhD dissertations, calls for papers, job announcements, brochures, and interpretive labels and wall texts for exhibitions.

See earlier examples (from 2005-13) here.
