Translator
Translating since 1995, in a wide variety of fields, like medicine and pharmaceutics, biochemistry, patents, popular science, consumer electronics, history, food and cooking, marketing and market research, etc. However, I do know my limitations and do NOT undertake any legal or finance translations.

Working in team with my wife Karin Nettelblad (with 28 years experience), one of us translating, the other one editing/proofreading the text. We – and our clients – have found that this renders a superior result, with translations that read like originals, without any non-idiomatic phrasings or ambiguities.


Medic and scientist

I hold a medical degree as well as a B.Sc. in chemistry, biochemistry and molecular genetics. Ph.D. studies in Medical chemistry. (Click here for a sample of my scientific work.)


Writer and journalist

Author of five successful science textbooks for Swedish secondary school, published by Bonnier and Liber Utbildning (Swedish branch of Wolters Kluwer) (Click here for one example).

Since 1988 writing popular science material for Swedish National Radio and various newspapers and magazines. For 13 years also writing a daily column about various historical jubilees and anniversaries.

For six years working halftime for Uppsala University, writing popular press releases about research news from the University (in all fields from theology and linguistics to medicine and theoretical physics).

Currently commissioned to write articles for the Youth Edition of the Swedish National Encyclopaedia (Nationalencyklopedin).


Don't contact me if price is your main concern

My wife and I offer reasonable rates and also adapt our rates to different kind of jobs. But we have chosen not to compete through low prices, but rather through superior quality. So, in order to save time for both you and us: if price is your top priority, please turn to someone else. Otherwise, please send a message to folia.text@telia.com
