About Lagom Communication

Lagom Communication is a company based in the UK that specialises in providing English language text production and translation services from Swedish, Norwegian and Danish to English for the Scandinavian outdoor (friluftsliv) and tourism industries. The company is run by Ben Love, who when necessary collaborates with carefully selected partners with the specialist expertise required by a particular project.

Who we work with

We work with businesses and organisations of all sizes, as well as with creative and marketing agencies working with brands, products and destinations. We also provide qualitative and quantitative research services for clients in the form of bespoke reports and analysis. No project is too small for us.

How we work

When you contact us to discuss an assignment, we will in turn ask you a lot of questions. This is to ensure that we are clear on exactly what it is you want to achieve before we submit a quote for the project in question. Once you have accepted our quote then we will get started on the implementation of your project and ensure it is delivered by the agreed deadline. Although we are based in the UK, we are able to travel to Scandinavia if a project requires this.

Business ethics and the environment

We believe in doing our part to help build a fairer society and protecting the environment through sustainable business practices and by volunteering our time and expertise to help with projects that benefit both society and the environment. If you are involved with a project that fits this bill and think we may be able to help, then get in touch!
