I come from a background in computer programming and accounting.

I got started in the translation field when I was hired as a full-time in-house translator in
2010 and continued in that role for three years before becoming a freelance translator.

While working in-house, I translated English into Swedish and localized web content for Sweden.
I was responsible for Quality Assurance for all Swedish content on all company websites.
I also assessed the level of proficiency in Swedish of prospective new hires.

I was born in Sweden, but moved to the U.S. more than 30 years ago.

I have passed the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) exam in the U.S. in an earlier 19.5-hour format,
and have completed one year of study in the J.D. program at an ABA approved law school.

I have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Stockholm University in Sweden.

Much of my early work consisted in translating the same kinds of government documents I used
to issue while working for many years in a Swedish government agency that I eventually headed.

More and more of my work is now coming from translation of technical materials, such as machine manuals and trademarks.
