Professional practices Mats Wiman endorses ProZ.com's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
About me
I am a graduate (Civilekonom = B.Sc.(Econ)/MBA) of the Stockholm School of Economics and a former reserve officer.
I have the Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency, First Grade and KDS - Kleines Deutsches Sprachdiplom (so has Sylvia, see below).
I have run my own business for 27 years, 13 of them in Germany, having marketed Swedish products in 5 languages in Sweden, Germany and Europe for 30 years.
Returning to Sweden in 1996 I started translating professionally (deu/eng/fra/esl>swe).
Sylvia (17 years in Germany, where we met) gradually joined me on a part-time basis. Today she is a professional translator in her own right and under her own name.
I work with MS Office 2010, Sylvia in Trados, SDLX, MemoQ, Across, Star Transit. 998f9d07df04f90b0bb3df9b0c38f493_Mats Wiman paradise.jpg

Being a moderator:

Since 2001 I am the German>Swedish moderator and have then taken on the (not very burdening) tasks to moderate other Swedish related language pairs (SWE/DEU/ENG/SPA/FRA) plus the Swedish forum.
Since not so may years I also moderate the Speech Recognition and Pronunciation forums. I also moderate the 'Honors & Citations' and 'In memoriam' forums.

I have greatly enjoyed and still enjoy being a moderator. It gives me a lot helping others and getting involved in many matters that are of importance to the site and myself.
Maybe the most rewarding part is to welcome new participants in 'my' language pairs (mostly English-related)
