Professional practices Janne Keskisaari endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am a Finnish native speaker living currently in Lappeenranta, Finland. I hold a Master's degree from the former University of Joensuu, Finland (nowadays a part of the University of Eastern Finland).
I majored in English translation and studied Swedish translation, IT for translators, as well as culture and communication as minor subjects.

I am also a member of the Finnish Association of Translators and Interpreters (SKTL). I appreciate all client relationships that include good communication and reliable payment, and I am willing to make a test translation if required. However, I am not looking for new clients at the moment. 

I translate with the following language pairs:
