With 20 years of experience in translating and localising Finnish and English, I deliver time-sensitive and complex translation projects.

My end clients are in the business sector, central and local government, the education sector and the legal professions.

I ensure that the translation makes the right impact, whether it be an authoritative financial bulletin or an inspiring company story for a website.

I comply with professional industry standards, and I have exprience of delivering texts for heavily regulated environments.

Specialised in two languages, I have been able to use my knowledge and skills across diverse fields from advertising to law, and to develop long-term relationships with my clients.

For my latest project, I worked for 18 months as an in-house translator for the Prime Minister's Office in Helsinki. I returned to freelancing in August 2020.

I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists in the UK and a Member of the Finnish Association of Translators and Interpreters. I have Diploma in Public Service Interpreting (DPSI)
and Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English Language for Adults (CELTA)
