Bio
TEACHER AND TRANSLATOR.

TEACHER. Many years ago (1975) I qualified as an upper-secondary school teacher of English, German and Swedish - my native language. Besides being employed all the years, I have returned to further university studies from time to time. Moreover, I held the post as Lektorin for Swedish at the University of Sheffield for a year.

TRANSLATOR. In June 2011, after two years' part-time studies, I was awarded the M.A. degree in English with specialization in translation. In August 2012, I left my teaching post to really get the time to work as a translator, and I do enjoy being self-employed. Mainly, I translate from English to Swedish but also from time to time from German to Swedish.

GUIDE. During several summer holidays I was the guide & leader of Swedish students on language courses in different towns along the English south coast, and like them I used to stay with a family.
Furthermore, I have been awarded quite a few scholarships for attending language courses myself, mainly in England.

I do love travelling, and besides the majority of the European countries, my travels have taken me around the world, to Australia, China, Thailand, India, Malaysia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Costa Rica, Cuba and Peru.

People often characterize me as efficient, hardworking and reliable. And they are probably right. I am a true linguist, who works conscientiously and delivers punctually.
