I am a 30-year-old mother of two who has always had a passion for languages. I'm a native Finn and I have studied English for thirteen years all in all and I have used it as my first language for the past 11 years. I came to the South of England as an exchange student in 1998 to learn the language and ever since I have been back and forth, first to study and later on to work. I now live in Kent with my English husband and our children.
I have six grades from the baccalaureate (equivalent to A-levels), including English A-, Swedish A-, German A-, Finnish A-, French B- and combined history and biology B-. Afterwards, I studied management and nutrition for four years at the Pirkanmaa University Of Applied Sciences at BA level.
I have been working as a part-time freelance translator for just over a year but now it is time to go full-time! I'm determined to work hard to build up a portfolio so nights and weekends aren't out of the question. The rates I have set reflect the desire to acquire long term co-operation. My main expertise includes human resources, management, marketing, nutrition, food and beverages, TV/film and last but not least sayings and slang.. I'm unbeatable at sayings, slang, rhymes etc. having lived in England for 10 years all in all, and these can be alien even to hardcore professionals as spoken language changes all the time. You need to have lived in both countries of your language pairs to be able to understand the modern day slang.
Whether the subject is business, marketing, nutrition or something of a more general nature I will provide you with a quality translation at a competitive price. I am committed, accurate, easy to get on with and have excellent writing skills! If you are looking for an Eng-Fin translator, make sure to choose one who lives in the UK!
