I am an academic member of Microsoft Developer Network and Apple Developer.

As, 90 % of all translation work always has been carried out by freelance translators working from their home, rather than employees in the companies, I have been working as a freelance translator since 1990.

Fixed price for academic translation: 0,10 EUR per source word

Fixed hourly rate: 40,00 EUR

I have been an English student at AAU since 2002 alternating between with 1 1/2 years of study and 1 1/2 year of translation work. I finished my English study in January 2016. I have, and still am, financing all my university studies with Danish SU, topped-up with well-paid translation work in my own translation company.

I finished my BA in English Language, Literature, and Translation in January 2016, I am currently studying part-time at open university at Aalborg UIniversity and University of Gothenburg and will finish in 2022. All financed by a Danish study grant.
