Bio
I offer translation from Danish to English. I lived in Denmark from 1964 until 1982. I raised a family of four in Denmark, and worked at a wide variety of jobs; Danish merchant marine, the Danish fishing fleet, the forest service, carpentry, land surveying, and technical drafting. I have an in depth knowledge of Danish society, and the Danish language. I have been writing in Danish for over forty years, and correspond with Danes on a regular basis.
I have translated two books from Danish to English, worked with the Kaj Munk Research Center on the project to transcribe all of Kaj Munk's sermons from handwritten notes (not translation). Kaj Munk was one of the best known poets, playwrights, pastors, and resistors to the German occupation.
I have made the first Danish to English Translation of the Selected Poetry of Gustaf Munch-Petersen, who died in the Spanish Civil War in 1938, at the age of 26. He was a member of the International Brigade, fighting against Franco. This has been published in a bilingual edition by Lur Publications at Dana College, on June 5, 2010.
I am working on a translation of "Kaj Munk og Tyskland" (Kaj Munk and Germany) by Søren Daugbjerg, to be published by Lur in 2011. This is a 250 page book about Kaj Munk's interest in German theater during the pre-war years leading up to WWll. This book was published in 2008 by Aalborg University.
I translated university theses during a five year period while I was a student at the University of Aarhus; math, geography, history, politics, and economics.
I can work with Word or PDF,s, Excel spreadsheets, and AutoCAD drawings. I guarantee accurate translations into fluent English.
