Game localizer with years of expertise.
I started working as a translator in 2002 and since then I have been doing extra training in different courses, webinars and meetings.
From the very beginning, game localization was very interesting for me, so I began to get specialized in that field.
I have translated several different projects for various agencies/companies.
At this moment, I am learning to program in Java and Swift to go one step forward in IT, Apps and software knowledge.

I'm drawn to game localization not only because of my hobby but also because I enjoy the creative challenges this field presents. My personal favorites among game genres are Point & Click adventures; Life and Building Simulations, and Strategy.

As a gamer myself and married to a game developer I have gained insights from both sides of the industry.
Playing games of many genres and languages I learned how unfavourable mistranslations are, for both publishers and players.
I offer accurate, creative and target group-appropriate game localizations, including translation of the manual, website, press releases and other marketing materials.
My previous experience focuses on indie games but I would also love to work with larger publishers.

I have translated various casino and sports betting instructions and marketing texts into Finnish for several online casinos. To me, the texts are logical and I aim to produce accurate and simple text that the reader can easily understand to become interested in the game.

I have also translated content for adventure and education games, which require more creative approach in order to support the game environment. I'm also interested in testing adventure and education games in the future.

I know how gamers think:
My love for gaming was first established in 1987 when my brother bought a used C128 and some games with it. All through my high school and college years and even after joining the workforce on a full-time basis I remained an avid gamer and role-player. So I know the expectations of gamers and their passion for the games they love.

I probably translate at least 200,000 words per year in the gaming sector alone. Since 2016 I am also translating novels, mostly fantasy. I have also worked with board game designers and done some creative writing of flavor texts. I am always aware of technical requirements and restrictions, and at the same time I can offer a creative final touch.

As a frequent gamer myself, I have good knowledge of target audiences, terminology used in games, I know which style suits a certain type of game best and I'm also perfectly capable of testing a game and spotting translation or localisation errors in it.
