My name is Paul Widergren and I live in Northern Arkansas.

Although English is my native language, I have, since retiring from teaching, mostly been proofreading Swedish and Danish books for Project Runeberg, Project Gutenberg, and the Swedish and Danish sections of Wikisource as a way to read and interact daily with the Swedish and Danish languages. I did have the opportunity to teach high-school Latin for a few years a number of years ago and so have decided to start proofreading a few Latin works as a way to refresh dormant proficiency in Latin and perhaps gain insight in the difference of approach among the Latin, English, Danish, and Swedish Wikisource sites.

Projected Initial Projects for 2022:
1. Easy Latin Stories (validation)
2. A First Latin Reader (proofreading)
3. Scriptores Minores Historiae Danicae Medii Aevi vol 1. (proofreading)
