Minusta on ihanaa tukea suomalaista osaamista maailmalla, ja tuoda suomalaisia tarinoita esille suuremmalle yleisölle. Suomalaiset ovat usein turhan vaatimattomia…
As a qualified British/Finnish writer, I have a proven track record of translating a wide range of texts into English from Finnish.
With an MA Distinction in English Literature (Bristol University) and experience as a project manager and editor, I am able to deal with complex translation and transcreation projects with ease.
With my unique mixture of bilingualism and biculturalism, I can bring a deep sense of understanding to the Finnish translation work that I do.
I see translation as an opportunity to consider branding, tone of voice, and cultural accuracy. There is no better feeling than successfully explaining a point of Finnish culture to a wider audience.
As well as technical and digital translation in the tech and marketing sphere, I am also primed for more creative translation work: poems, playtexts, creative work, brochures, bids, short stories, novels, etc.
I also run bilingual poetry workshops (Finnish & English) to help people express themselves creatively in Finnish, and I write about Finnish culture and literature in English (for fun).
