Hi, my name is Martin Hassel, and I'm one of the Norwegian volunteer TED translators. I live in Trondheim, Norway, where I work as a safety consultant and engineer. I have a Master's Degree in Naval Engineering from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. My background is from the Royal Norwegian Navy, where I worked as a navigator and commanding officer for several years. (This means I am very detail oriented, and may give very direct feedback.)
My TED related background is that I have watched a lot of TED talks, and translated just over a hundred. In addition to this, I have organized a couple of TEDx events and attended TEDGlobal 2011, in Edinburgh, where I attended TEDx and OTP workshops. I have no formal translation background, but I'm married to an English teacher, and I'm very detail oriented and take pride in my work.
