Bio
I worked for many years in the British Royal Navy and then in an Information Technology company as an engineer and manager. During both these careers, I was also a part-time translator and interpreter in Swedish and Norwegian. I lived and worked in Sweden for months at a time (once 2.5 years) and made shorter business visits to Norway.

This experience has proved extremely valuable to my clients since I set up as a freelance translator and occasional interpreter. I know how industry and business work and how these environments affect people.
I can thus bring long practical experience in science-based industries and commerce to your translation requirements.

Lighter note: The newspaper Stockholms-Tidningen once awarded me a "Humorist-diplom" for a contribution in Swedish.
