EDUCATION & BACKGROUND

I am a native speaker of U.S. English and work from Danish, Norwegian and Swedish. Having lived and worked in Europe for over 20 years, I am also very familiar with British usage, grammar and spelling. I have resided in Denmark since 1997.

I have an in-depth understanding of my source languages, and I take pride in rendering accurate and idiomatic translations into English.
