I graduated from the Turku Language Institute receiving the degree of 'diplomikielenkääntäjä' (DKK) in English and German and specializing in medicine and biology. In addition, I have the degree of BA majoring in English Translation and Interpreting from the University of Turku. I am an authorized translator from Finnish into English, English into Finnish and Swedish into Finnish.
Over the years I have expanded my skills by participating in many courses and seminars on commercial, technical and medical language, technical writing, scientific English, Finnish and medicine.
I founded Kääntöliike in the year 2000. Before that, I worked as a translator in a translation agency specializing in medicine and in a large multinational pharmaceutical company. I have performed linguistic revision of many dissertations in the fields of medicine, psychology, biochemistry, technology and chemistry.
Apart from my translation work I have also held courses in medical translation at the University of Turku.
