Amy Boulton

British copywriter and copy editor based in Gothenburg


I specialise in English language copy that gets your message across to an international audience a straightforward yet compelling way. I'm trained at master's level in contemporary art, and although I specialise in art and culture communications I enjoy working on a project basis, producing and editing texts for a wide range of sectors in the Scandinavian region. 

The type of content I’m most passionate about uses tech to help people explore places and build community - I love to work on things like tourism apps, crowd-sourced maps, local activity networks and alternative city tours.

Copy editing & Proofreading: 

I have a good working knowledge of Swedish and can translate from Swedish to English, or refine your translated texts for clarity and style. I also have a good comprehension of French and can offer basic translation of texts between French and English.




Copywriting: 

In 9 years of producing and editing texts for the arts, I’ve honed my skills in explaining complex ideas in simple terms. In artwork descriptions, research project outlines and exhibition introductions, I have a keen sense of what works and why. Equally I’ve seen the pitfalls (ever heard of ‘International Art English’?). Whether art related or not, I can transform your text into an engaging read that captures your audience’s imagination.
