My name is Kåre Thor Olsen (Kaare) and I'm from the Danish language edition of Wikipedia, where you'll find my most up-to-date user page. At the Danish wikipedia, I'm an editor, bureaucrat, checkuser, and OTRS mail-answering person (info-da queue).

Here on Meta I primarily do translations of project wide texts to Danish, and, time permitting, additionally cross-wiki spam fighting.

I'm also a spam and vandal fighting administrator on the sadly tiny Kalaallisut (Greenlandic) language edition of Wikipedia. I don't understand the Kalaallisut language, but neither does the spammers and vandals.

I have a small number of contributions, mostly manual interwiki additions, in a wide range of other Wikipedia projects, especially in Swedish, English, German and Norwegian bokmål. Also, on Commons, you'll find a number of my pictures.


It is difficult to define linguistic skills within the Babel system, so except for Danish (obviously) mine are based on feelings rather than grades, as I don't have any recent grades, and not for all of the languages.

With an imaginary Babel system suited to my needs, split up in a reading and a writing section, my skills would be something like:

Official Read Write Note
Danish da-N da-N da-N My native language
English en-3 en-4 en-3 People tend to over-estimate their skills in English, most likely I do as well
Norwegian bokmål nb-2 nb-4 nb-2 Reading may be better - basically, bokmål is Danish spelled poorly :-)
Swedish sv-2 sv-4 sv-2 I find that it is possible to write in Swedish, with some trouble
German de-2 de-4 de-2 If it weren't for the grammar (de-1), writing would be de-3
Norwegian nynorsk nn-1 nn-2 nn-0 Reading may be better - haven't "exposed" myself to much nynorsk, have never attempted to write in it
Spanish es-1 es-1 es-1 Like the language, but lack the time (shame on you, Wikipedia!) to learn more
