Professional practices Erkki Pekkinen endorses's Professional Guidelines.
Est. 1989, palette of half-a-dozen languages and their combinations. user of translation software, TranSmart/Sunda (Finnish-English) and Studio 2014-2017-2019. Authorized/Certified translator. Specialization field is forestry and forest industries and education.

My most demanding jobs so far: one commissioned by the Prime Minister's Office (Finland) and two localization projects (UK & US). I and colleagues continue to do work for various universities and research institutes. Also, two glossary/dictionary projects (education, published in 1998) and forestry terminology (unpublished)). In 1998, a 350 p. book in English on the Finnish forest industries. And in 2011, a textbook of 270 pages translated into English; Metsäkoulu = Finnish Forestry, Practice and Management. At about the same time, I also completed a set of forestry training course descriptions (some 250 pages) Finnish-into-English for a vocational college in Western Finland. In December, 2013, I brought to successful conclusion the translation, Finnish-into-English, of a doctoral dissertation of 520 standard pages. The title of the dissertation is: METSÄNHOITAJIEN MAA - A LAND OF FORESTERS by Lauri Vaara, University of Helsinki.

I have also served as interpreter at several depositions, in Helsinki and Salo and Tampere and Oulu (all in Finland), in London (UK), and in Oslo (Norway). Patent disputes were the themes at these events.
