Finnish-To-English Translation & writing

Translating, writing & captioning

I will always be a writer first, no matter what else I end up doing. Communicating is my superpower and words are my fuel. I have recently translated my first academic monograph from Finnish to English, and I have done captioning work for the Finnish National Theatre. I write poetry and run poetry workshops in my spare time. Like all writers, my desk draws and Notes apps are filled with half-finished stories and ideas.

Translating Finnish plays and books into English

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.

I am primed for more creative translation work: poems, playtexts, creative work, brochures, bids, short stories, novels, etc.

Business and tech translation

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.

I also run poetry workshops (Finnish & English) to help people express themselves creatively, and I write about Finnish culture and literature in English (for fun).
