Academic Qualifications

I have a cand.philol. (postgraduate degree) in English from the University of Oslo, specializing in translation. I am also a government-authorized translator from Norwegian into English. This gives me a unique combination of theoretical and practical qualifications in translation.

In 2016, I took the one-year programme in Public Sector Interpreting at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences. I am registered in the Norwegian National Register of Interpreters, as a category 3 interpreter.

I also have a background in the social sciences, with a Master of Arts in International Affairs from the University of Warwick, UK. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Oslo, and one of the subjects that formed part of this degree was Political Science.

  • Two years as a translator with the National Criminal Investigation Service, Norway.
  • Three years as a translator with Accenture.
