About me
28 years in the translation business

I regard myself as a hard working and reliable person. I am very dedicated to my work, I never make short cuts and I always try to submit a project I feel proud of, no matter what it takes in terms of personal and financial sacrifices.

I have worked with SDL Trados on numerous projects for many international translation agencies. I have worked 29 years as an author and a book translator as well.

I am a member of Norsk faglitterær forfatter- og oversetterforening, the premier association for non-fiction writers and technical translators in Norway. (Criteria for membership.)

Here is a list of some of the authors whose books I have translated: Fiction: Robert Ludlum, Clive Cussler, David Baldacci, Dean Koontz, Richard North Patterson, Sidney Shelden, Scott Turow, Michael Palmer and many others. Non-fiction: Jerry Spence (legal), Tom Peters (business/management), Michael Hammer (business/management), James Champy (business/management), David Freemantle (business/management), and many others. (See my CV or my home page for a complete list.)

I have translated more than 100 books for the biggest and most renowned Norwegian publishing houses.
