Software:

I have previous experience with HTML editors (and manual HTML "coding"), Power Point, Word and Officem Wordfast. Having spent most of my years in front of a computer though, programs and systems are something I very easily pick up.

Other Relevant Experience:

Continuous work with exchange students to help them with Swedish/Norwegian while improving my Russian/Hungarian/Ukrainian, previously also French and Arabic.

Work carrying out telephone interviews for a Scandinavian enterprise among their salesmen in France (in French) and England (in English).

Worked one summer at Oslo Tourist Information, helping tourists in Sw/No/Fr/Eng/Ru.

Also currently working as an annotator on the PROIEL (Pragmatic Resources in Old Indo-European Languages) project at the University of Oslo, annotating Old Church Slavonic biblical texts for syntax and morphology.

Additional areas of Expertise and Interest:

My main interests are linguistics, old/dead languages, Slavic languages, literature, culture, arts and crafts. My knowledge of French philosophical terms and concepts is quite great due to spending the biggest part of one year studying European philosophy in France.
Scientific terms on a level that could perhaps best be described as "popular" is also something I feel confident in after having spent three years studying natural science in English.
