Leif Ohman

Description

I was born in Sweden and grew up there, but moved to the U.S. some 40 years ago.



In Sweden, I started as a life insurance actuary and served as a technical expert during negotiations for flexible retirement age. I then moved into government work and became head of the local branch of a government agency. This involved applying a new freedom of information act.



In the U.S., I started by passing the CPA-exam, then completed the first year of the JD program at an ABA-approved law school before finally settling into computer programming in the insurance and financial industry.



Then in 2010 I was hired as an in-house translator for a social media company. Three years later the company outsourced the entire office overseas.




I now work as a freelance translator.



I translate, edit and proofread from English, German and Danish into Swedish and from Swedish into English.
My main tools are Trados and Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint).
I specialize in legal and technical materials.
Recently translated a 10,000-word enforcement action by the German energy regulator.
Also translated training materials in Competition law and in Safety leadership.
Manuals for electric vehicle charging stations are now a regular translation assignment.
