Bio
I started my career as technical translator in 1983 when I was still studying at Helsinki University of Technology. Since my M.Sc (mech.eng) graduation in 1985, I have been a full-time translator. I have lived and worked in Finland, Germany, and in the U.S. Currently, I run translation business with my spouse, and have residence both in Finland and the U.S. so you can deal either with a European or an American company.

I specialize in mechanical engineering, automotives and trucks, machine tools, manufacturing technology, computers, hardware and software, information technology, and telecommunications. I have also experience of various machines and devices, printing technology, injection-moulding, measuring instruments, material technology, videos, multimedia, games, appliances, audiovisual, and household devices, etc.

The specialities of my spouse, whom I run the translation business with, include medical instruments, telecommunications, electronics, marketing, sales, business management, and accounting.

Types of documents: technical and user manuals, brochures, and other marketing materials, contracts, agreements, material safety data sheets, EN standards, web sites, software strings.

We have worked for numerous manufacturers including Abacus, Action Man, Adidas, Adige, Adobe, Amada, APC, Atlas (Valmet), Atrion, Audi, Audio-Technica, Beka-Mak, Biegemaster, Birlik, Blohm, BrainLab, Bridgeport, Brother, Brüel Kjær&Vibro, Burkhardt+Weber, Campath, Canon, Casinolux, Castor/Roehmfeld, Cemsa, Circutor, Compass, Copre, Costa, Cybelec, Cybermation, Davi, Dainichi, Denn, Donewell, Draeger, Durmazlar, Dynacord, Electrolux, EMAG, Emko, ENC, Epson, Ex-Cell-O, Exte, Fac, Fanuc, Fastems, Ford, Fuji, Gardner Denver, GE Medical, Glauchau, Georg Fischer, Hardinge, Heber, Heidelberg, Heidenhain, Innse-Berardi, Imt Intermato, Jeager, Jungheinrich, Kenwood, Kitamura, Komori, Konica, Macri, Maggun, Mazak, Medidata, Metba, Microsoft, Miyano, Modeva, Motorola, Mölnlycke, Neles, Niles, Nissan Europe, Nextrom, Nortel, Nova Strobe, Nuova, Okuma, Omera, Ona, Pegard, Pensotti, Pfizer, Praxis, Printmaster, Promecam, Pullmax, Raven, Rexroth, Ricoh, Saarlouis, Sahinler, Salvagnini, Sanyo, Scania, SSI Schäfer, Schenck, Schiess, Schuler, Sicodan, Sinumerik, SMV, Sony, Soundtronic, Spiro, Stam, Tacchi, Taylormade, Tilgun, Toma, TomTom, Toshiba, Tranemo, Ursviken, Visodata, Voumard, Wacker, Worldcom, Yasda, Xerox
