I'm David Nikel, a native English writer living and working in Trondheim, Norway.
I help Scandinavian companies and their marketing agencies improve their English language communications to target a global audience.
Scandinavia is my "beat", but I work with clients all over the world, from Qatar to the USA.
I work regularly with non-native English speakers and understand many of the cultural differences in global business.
As a native Brit, I write in British English but will happily switch to American English when required.
Unlike many freelance journalists, I've actually worked in industry: mainly project management within the ICT, engineering, energy and automotive fields.
I've written about topics as diverse as scrubbers (shipping), Monte Carlo algorithms (probability-based software) and rock drilling (mining), and plenty about the northern lights, of course!
I understand the language of innovation & industry.
As a frequent traveller around the region, I produce destination features, local news articles and travel features for a variety of global publications.
You'll see my work in the Telegraph, the publications of Norwegian Air, airBaltic and Finnair, and on my own Life in Norway website.
