Bio

Hi, I'm Heidi. Norwegian and yet not. When I finished high school, English had become my preferred language of learning and communication - just because this language hosts such a wealth of info available through publications and social media. Later, I moved to Sweden and experienced the pleasure of another language opening some new alleys in my life. 

I am an experienced technical writer from the Economics and Project software business. For 13 years I used to work as both a freelancer and with a permanent position for Unit4 R&D, its Agresso/Business World solution. Online help and reference manuals for the end users were my main focus from morning till evening, plus reference manuals for the consultants. I loved this profession!

In recent years, I have broadened my scope; by now I am an experienced teacher in Norwegian as a Secondary Language and a qualified Nursing Assistant in addition to a developing Accountant. Strange combination? Part-time efforts and changes of location (Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands) are the answer to that. I currently have my own translation/proofreading/writing firm to make sure everyone may benefit from my range of professional experience, available for you and your customers! Translation and proofreading services are supplied in the language pairs English/Swedish/Danish into Norwegian Bokmål and Norwegian Nynorsk.

As a language nerd, I really want to stress the joy of learning foreign alphabets and language structures; the agglutinating languages being a never-ending source of wonderment, and how all that comes in handy when studying WWII on the Eastern Front or, well, the rest of History.

My university studies encompass English, Social Sciences (with a Master thesis based on the study of how technology may shape our social identity), a little Programming and Pedagogy. Linguistics and Phonetics are part of this experience; yes, this spiral always meanders back to Language - this tool that so paves the road for Change; whether in our inner being or in our circumstances.

And did I mention that I work fast and deliver within the deadline? Want me to prove this? Please get in touch today so we can discuss your projects!
