Prior to working as a professional translator, I worked as an HR manager and assistant CFO for two American companies in Helsinki. I left to create and build a web design company that specialized in translation optimization of web content.

I earned a master’s degree in finance from the University of Vaasa, Finland, with minors in English, Finnish and communications focusing on linguistics. Having been through the process of writing and editing a book which was subsequently published, I have a unique perspective and understanding of translating both creative and linear materials with a keens sense of language appropriate translations for specific target audiences.

My promise to you; high quality, consistent, on time, ready to publish translations at affordable rates all with effortless communication. I continue to study the nuances of the Finnish language and have traveled and lived abroad off and on for many years. I have studied English for fifteen years and being married to an American who has not yet mastered the complexities of Finnish I consider English my second native language.
