About me

I am Niina Lahokoski, a professional Finnish translator with over 9 years of experience in translation, and a Bachelor's degree in German Translation and Interpretation.
I do business as Lahokoski Linguistics and specialize in technology, such as video game localization, software localization, office equipment,
consumer electronics, websites, etc. My business is based in Finland, but I also spend a considerable amount of time in Spain. Translations into Spanish will be
proofread by a native Spanish speaker.
