My experience ranges from normal documents to specialized marketing, agricultural, technical and creative literature translations. Experience in creative literary translation has sharpened my ability to present your document in an appropriate style. Your translated technical document will read easily, without awkward phrasing to distract from the content. I am a published Finnish author by a recognized publisher. Our company (2 persons, I and my husband) has created and maintained over 150 web shops, mostly selling nutritional and health care products, some of them in 5 languages - Finnish, English, Swedish, Estonian and Russian.
My translation delivers the intended message to the target audience and is grammatically and typographically accurate.
