From England to Jämtland

I live in Jämtland, Sweden, but was born and raised in England. I moved to Sweden after completing my Honours Degree in English Literature at the University of Sheffield.

I began translating through my job as Lecturer in English at Högskolan Dalarna and soon understood that translating does not only involve exchanging the words of one language for those of another (fortunately, otherwise machine translations would make me redundant).

Translation is a skill and does not just demand an understanding for grammar and vocabulary, but also tone and form and, not least, the intended readership.

I have two internationally recognised teaching diplomas (Dip TEFL and Dip ESP) and many years' teaching experience, of which seven are at university level. Since 2002 I have worked with bilingual children and courses in Business English.
