CV/Resume English (PDF)

I am an experienced IT & marketing translator (English–Finnish) with core competencies in the following subject areas:

  • B2B and B2C marketing
  • software engineering
  • Internet of Things, automation and the "fourth industrial revolution"
  • cloud computing (MS Azure, Amazon AWS, etc.)
  • backup, security, networking and telecommunication solutions
  • mobile and wearable technologies
  • creative applications (Adobe CC, Autodesk etc.)
  • computer hardware and peripherals
  • software and app localization
  • photography, videography and audio equipment
  • virtual, mixed and augmented reality
  • education and training
  • gaming and betting
  • pet products

I have over a decade of extensive experience in technical translation, and I can reliably deliver projects with large and very large volumes (up to 50,000–100,000 WWC) whenever those are available. Furthermore, I am a fluent transcreator with a native understanding of the Finnish market.

I am a regularly employed freelance translator for several major translation agencies. In addition, I've served as the Finnish Language Lead for a certain high-volume account since 2015. My formal education is a Master's Degree in Cultural Studies, but I also have more than three decades of IT experience, and I provide digital marketing services for various clients on the side.

I am based in the United States (New York) as a permanent resident, and I'm effectively bilingual at a professional level in both English and Finnish.

A short list of my end clients: Microsoft, Amazon, Autodesk, Dell, Lenovo, Adobe, HP, Canon, Nikon, Automation Anywhere, 3M, PayPal, Unibet, Specsavers, Philips, Computer Associates, Acronis, Brainlab, OPPO, Evernote, Google, Lexmark, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic...

P.S. Please note that I focus on delivering Premium quality and do not accept jobs with a discounted "Basic" quality requirement. Serious inquiries only!
