Bio

I have worked in the translation and communication business full time since 2005, first as an in-house translator at a translation agency - also doing some subtitling on the side - and since 2010 as a freelance language specialist. Over the years, I have translated more or less everything from lipstick adverts to drilling rig manuals. My strengths include exceptional grammatical accuracy and high sensitivity to the style of any source text.

I also have a solid educational background for my job: I majored in English translation at the University of Tampere, completing my Master's degree in 2007. My minor subjects included Swedish translation, Finnish communications and North American studies, and I also dedicated one academic year to technical communications studies.

To ensure consistent style and terminology in my translations, I use modern translation tools, such as SDL Studio.
