Bio
I am a Finnish, 30-something freelance translator with a wide range of interests. I am currently a postgraduate student at the University of Oulu, majoring in the history of science and ideas. As minor subjects, I have taken English philology, philosophy, film studies, art history, general linguistics, environmental studies (in the humanities), and the classical languages, among others.

As a translator, I am not a full-time professional, though I hope to become one after I am finished with my university studies. Although my translation work has lately seemed to be heading towards poetry and fiction, I have during my career translated mostly academic papers dealing with, for instance, literary studies and cultural anthropology. My single most extensive job, however, has been the translation of George Berkeley's classic books A New Theory of Vision and The Principles of Human Knowledge into Finnish. I have also subtitled a documentary film, and, being a cinema buff, hope to be doing more of that in the future.
