Professional practices Hannele Marttila endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a professional full-time translator/ editor specialising in medical, legal, financial and commercial translations.

My qualifications are BA 1st in English and an MBA from Warwick University, UK. My 20 year career as a management consultant/ project manager/ HR specialist in blue chip companies in Finland, Denmark and the UK, such as IBM and Ernst & Young, gives me an excellent background for translating financial articles, bids & tenders, project documentation or annual reports etc.

I have specialised in medical translations now for over 10 years, and have a wealth of experience in translating patient histories, medical white papers, pharmaceutical brochures, medication particulars etc.

I am a published author and a member of Society of Authors' Translators Association in the UK.

My other interests include sailing, cooking, classic cars and bikes, and I can therefore produce good translations in all of these areas.

Lastly, I am very disciplined. I deliver exactly what is required, be that a back translation, translation, edit or proofread, and always on time. I will always ask whether the assignment is for publication or information and also query any points that may be unclear. As a published author, I can translate something in the style of the author, adapt a text culturally or, rewrite a text in plain English/ Finnish, if required.
