As a native Norwegian speaker, I grew up both in Norway and in California, and have later lived for extended periods of time abroad, in Hong Kong, Japan and France. Having a knack for language, perhaps due to having grown up knowing two languages, I have quickly picked up new languages. While studying as an exchange student in Hong Kong, I promptly learnt to read local menus semantically. Due to my own over-efficiency while studying for my degree in Cognitive Science, I ended up getting a degree in Japanese at the same time, whereupon I studied as an exchange student for one year in Kyoto, directly afterwards lived in Tokyo for half a year, and later came back and worked in Tokyo for seven months in an all Japanese environment. I have also picked up enough French to stay there for months at a time without too much linguistic hassle.

This being said, my educational background is not largely related to language. I am educated as an electronics technician with a specialty in space technology, and have university degrees in information science including informatics, and cognitive science which includes psychology, linguistics, information science and philosophy.

I also have teaching experience teaching classes as well as creating and correcting homework assignments for classes in cognitive science, artificial intelligence and computer programming, with classes conducted both in English and Norwegian.

Subject matter

Subject matter I am confident in translating includes anything computer related, electronics related, psychology related, and more.
