About me
Personal:
Almost 40 years’ experience in an industrial environment, over 20 of those years working as an industrial engineer in Norway, with 10 years as a project manager in a multilingual environment. My experience in electrical, instrument, mechanical and process control as well as heavy IT experience have enabled me to expand my horizons into other areas.

These areas include about 20 years as a freelance translator and instructor in several fields (both Norwegian and English), including control and measurement techniques, PC programming and public speaking.

Translation areas:
    Oil and petroleum Process industries
    Course books
    Installation manuals
    Database programming manuals and other technical writing
    PC programming manuals
    3 Books by Norwegian authors (1 to UK, and 2 to US)

Other interests:
I love to write, and hopefully, my translation work reflects this. I'm not satisfied with just getting the right translation. I want to see it flow so the reader gets something out of it, even if it's a technical article. To me, writing is an art that should be applied to translation.

I have written two books of my own. One (Beware the Bright Moon) is published on Amazon and Smashwords. The other (Through the Portal-The Land) is the first of a series, and I'm working on publishing it at the moment. The third, Book two of the Through the Portal series is in production.
