Professional practices Riku Pepponen endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
It was supposed to be a short summer job – but here I am, a decade later, fully invested into the exciting world of IT translation and localizing all kinds of software projects into Finnish.

Throughout the years I've had the pleasure of working for some of the industry’s most well-known enterprises, such as Salesforce (~10 years now), Hewlett-Packard (HP), and Toshiba, as well as for some of the recent newcomers in the software field, like Snapchat, Tinder, and Viber. The journey here has been more challenging, educating, and rewarding than I could have ever imagined.

Every project is different! I’ve translated everything from user interfaces to help documents, email communications, mobile apps, desktop software, hardware manuals, websites… Each require a different style, yet the translations have to be consistent.

It’s easy to see that localizing software successfully requires more than just providing translations for a list of words – it’s a process that begins from the developers, where the translation is formed to provide the best user experience, and which is tested thoroughly by a native linguist with the required programming skills. Needless to say, I commit myself to every project to ensure that everyone from the client to the end-user are happy with the results in the end.

If you’re looking for a professional, committed translator to localize your software solutions to Finnish, you’ve found the right person!
