I'm a freelance translator for Estonian/English and I have had more than 14 years of formal English education including English courses at the Tallinn University of Technology. I have worked in an English-speaking environment for a long time and as a freelance translator for the past 11 years, providing native level translations to and from Estonian. My translations are 50/50 into Estonian and English (also from Finnish) alike and I also provide editing/QA services.
I have processed a wide range of technical manuals (for example for Caterpillar, Hyundai, Toyota, Ford, Ducati, Konecranes, Samsung, KitchenAid, LG, HP, GE Healthcare etc.) and have excellent experience also with legal documents (EU, Estonian and Finnish legislation, court documents, forensic materials, contracts, patents) product medical device manuals, information sheets, medical research files, PILs and various other topics.
I have been working as a freelance translator since 2004.
Main working areas:
- Technical and IT: mostly user manuals and MSDSs, also UI texts and software localization
- Medical: manuals for medical equipment, general pharmaceutical texts, EMA templates.
- Marketing: brand manuals, brochures, ads
I use Trados Studio 2011 and MemoQ 2014
I'm in translation business since 2007. Main fields: everything about technology (from small devices to big agricultural machinery, from mobile apps to operating systems). Also I work a lot with fashion industry and fintech sector.
I've been a successful freelance English-Estonian translator/editor since 2007. I mainly work with Marketing, IT, Technical, and European Union texts, though I often broaden my horizons outside those areas as well. In addition to technical texts, I've also translated several books and won an Estonian translation award. Though I’ve never actually needed it, my 25 000 € professional indemnity insurance grants further peace of mind for all the parties.
I like to keep up with current language trends by attending relevant in-service training programs and conferences whenever my schedule allows it. Over the years, several CAT-tools (mainly Trados and memoQ, though I'm proficient with many others) have helped me provide consistent and flawless results. Clients and colleagues describe my work as always on time, accurate, and carried out according to your instructions.
