I am a Finnish native speaker and have been living in Germany since 2006. After obtaining my university degrees as a conference interpreter (EMCI) and translator (M.A.) I gained extensive experience as a freelance language expert working for the European institutions, international companies and German and Finnish authorities amongst others. I am a member of the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ e.V.) as well as of the German Association of Conference Interpreters (VKD im BDÜ e.V.). I am also a sworn interpreter of the Finnish language for courts and notaries.
