I grew up bilingual, working and studying in Norway and the United Kingdom. In the UK, I studied history at the School of Oriental and African studies and obtained a PhD from Oxford University.
Based on my academic work I have authored a book “Disobedience, Seduction and Slander and Assault in Cajamarca. Women and Men in Cajamarca, Peru, 1862-1900” published by Texas University Press, and have published several scholarly journal articles in the United Kingdom and Peru.
In Norway, I have been the editor of the Norwegian Trade Council’s English-language publication Norway Exports, and worked for a translation agency for two years before successfully passing the examination for government-authorised translators at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) in 2005. After combining part-time translation with teaching for almost ten years, I set up my company Christiansen Språktjenester AS in 2014.
I am a current member of the Association of Government Authorised Translators in Norway, (STF).
