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 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. Most of my work is translating academic texts and these texts have come from many different fields such as philosophy, social sciences and linguistics. I provide translations and interpretations to and from both Finnish and English. I can also translate from 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.
FINNISH - ENGLISH - DUTCH
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.
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.
