April 1982-March 1983: News editor and broadcaster, News in English, Danmarks Radio, Copenhagen.

I condensed 24 hours' worth of telex reports from Associated Press, Reuters, and Agence France-Presse into a five-minute script and read the script on the air. The size of my audience was estimated at one-half to one million.

September 1978-December 1980: Secretary and translator, Danish Medical Group, Amnesty International, Copenhagen.

I administered the Medical Letter-Writing Group and translated and edited medical reports on torture victims. I continued to work for AI as a freelance translator until I left Denmark in April 1983.

I also have an extensive reference library at home, including foreign-language dictionaries for a number of languages and travel guides to and maps of many countries.
