TRANSLATING - INTERPRETING - PROOFREADING

ENGLISH - FINNISH - DUTCH - SWEDISH

ABOUT ME

I am an English language specialist, specialised in translations from Finnish to English. I studied English philology at the University of Helsinki from 2012 to 2016, when I graduated as a Master of Arts. I started doing occasional translation work during my studies, and have been a full-time translator since the spring of 2018. I have experience in translating many types of texts, from academic articles to comedy subtitles. I provide translations and interpretations to and from both Finnish and English. I can also translate from Swedish or Dutch to Finnish or English. I also provide proofreading for English texts. I am a highly organised and competent worker, so working with me will surely be easy and you can be assured of receiving a translation which has been given the attention it deserves.

LANGUAGES

FINNISH - ENGLISH - DUTCH - SWEDISH

I am bilingual in Finnish and English, providing you with good insight in both languages. As I have grown up in the Netherlands and have learnt Dutch, I can also provide translations from Dutch. With Swedish as a strong second language, translations from Swedish are also possible.

TEXTS

ACADEMIC - SUBTITLES - WEBSITES - BOOKS

I have worked with many types of translations and will continue to broaden my areas of expertise. I have translated academic texts, non-fiction books, websites, many subtitles for programmes and other texts. In my translations I always consider the clients’ wishes and the style and readers of the text.

QUALITY AND RELIABILITY

I am a reliable worker, who pays attention to details and punctuality. I check all my texts carefully and commit to schedules. I have always received good feedback from clients and many have returned to ask for other translations from me, because they have received good and reliable work from me.
