Eriksen Translations Supports 2017 Swedish Midsummer Festival

Eriksen Translations Inc.

Monday, 19 June, 2017

Eriksen Translations Inc., a leading provider of multilingual language solutions, is proud to announce that it will be one of the sponsors of the 2017 Swedish Midsummer Festival. Presented by Battery Park City Parks and co-hosted by the Consulate General of Sweden in New York, the annual festival draws approximately 8,000 people to Battery Park City for a Swedish celebration of the summer solstice.

Founded in 1986 by a Norwegian linguist, Eriksen is a translation company with deep-rooted heritage in the Scandinavian languages and culture. While the company has since expanded to offer comprehensive translation services into more than 100 languages for clients around the globe, Eriksen still considers it a privilege to provide translation services to New York City residents.

“As a Brooklyn-based translation company, we’re always excited to support New York City’s cultural diversity at Midsummer,” states founder and CEO Vigdis Eriksen. “And, it’s always a fun evening! We applaud the Consulate’s team for its ability to draw so many people out each year to enjoy this time-honored tradition and celebrate Swedish heritage!”

At this annual event, attendees from around the New York area picnic in the grass, make flower wreaths, play traditional games and dance around the midsummer pole to authentic fiddle music. This year’s program will feature traditional music by Paul Dahlin, fiddlers from the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, folk dances with Barnklubben Elsa Rix, and pole dancing led by Scandinavian folklorist and singer Ross Sutter.
