Karin Söderholm has announced her departure as president and co-owner of Accent as of November 1, 2019.
In 1997 Karin was one of the two original founders of the company. Beginning as an administrator and project manager, Karin’s role grew over time and in 2014 she became company president.
In its early days, Accent was among the first few translation agencies in Sweden to have a website and this paid off immediately. The company grew quickly as it became known among Swedish researchers and companies for providing high quality translation and editing services. Today Accent’s clients span the globe and it is well-known as a Nordic provider of language services. Karin has been involved in every step of making this possible.
The response from both translators and customers alike to Karin’s departure from the company has been very touching, with tributes flowing in. She has a strong following among colleagues and clients, and her personal touch and professionalism will be greatly missed. She has been a steady hand in good times and bad and has shown both patience and foresight.
As Karin begins this new chapter in her life, we are adding our voice to the chorus of well-wishers. Thanks for everything Karin.
We will be retiring your coffee cup. Go Warriors!
