About me
Before starting my freelance career, I gathered solid experience in this business and in translation as a process. I worked at a Finnish language service agency for nearly two years as inhouse translator and Project Coordinator. Stemming from that experience, I'm sure I won't let any Project Manager down; I guarantee a timely, prompt delivery with high quality, and take pride in my professionalism.

I have a MA degree in Translation Studies (English) from the University of Tampere in Finland. I incorporated a number of important minor subjects into the degree, such as Public and International Law, Business Law, International Relations, Swedish Translation Studies and Finnish Literature. I also have international study and work experience from Hungary, the US and Canada.

My strongest points include my natural abilities for languages - I really can write, which I regard the most important feature for any translator. My most essential specialization is in marketing and business communications in a more general level. Marketing can, of course, be connected to a number of things and I do have extensive experience from fields such as travel & tourism, cosmetics, beauty & health, fashion, administration, EU, education... Everything from technology to fine arts and back to COPD!

I love this work and am very driven to succeed.

As any reliable freelancer, I'm a pleasure to work with and always happy to submit a quote. I'm also happy to provide you a full CV with more information.
