For the past 5 years she has been in charge of, and appointed, terminologist for the Danish terminology used by one of the world’s largest IT providers.

Christina is the creative spirit of the company. Her command of language is out of this world and she is spot on – both as a localiser and as a copywriter.

Christina comes from a city called Frederikshavn in Denmark – this means that her pronunciation may be a bit quaint, but fortunately her written expression is flawless! When Christina is not juggling with tortuous English phrasing or concocting a catchy ad text, she is rebuilding her house, out swimming, taking photos and designing jewellery. She is married to Jacob and the mother of Victor and Naja. Recently she became a mother of Mischa the cat as well…
