English to Finnish Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Finnish and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Finnish and Finnish to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Finnish: Arabic ↔ Finnish; Spanish ↔ Finnish; French ↔ Finnish; German ↔Finnish; Italian ↔ Finnish; Portuguese ↔ Finnish; Russian ↔ Finnish; Japanese ↔ Finnish; Chinese ↔ Finnish; Hindi ↔ Finnish; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Finnish Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Finnish to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Finnish to English language translation resources – including experienced Finnish language translators (native-speaking Finnish if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Finnish language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Finnish as a native language may not 'translate into' Finnish language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Finnish and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Finnish language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Finnish translation assignment process for information on our Finnish translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Finnish language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Finnish translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Finnish (suomi, or suomen kieli) is the language spoken by the majority of the population in Finland (92% as of 2006) and by ethnic Finns outside of Finland. It is one of the official languages of Finland and an official minority language in Sweden. In Sweden, both standard Finnish and Meänkieli, a Finnish dialect, are spoken. The Kven language, which is closely related to Finnish, is an official minority language in Norway.
Finnish is a member of the Finno-Ugric language family and is typologically between inflected and agglutinative languages. It modifies and inflects the forms of nouns, adjectives, pronouns, numerals and verbs, depending on their roles in the sentence.
Finnish is a member of the Baltic-Finnic subgroup of the Finno-Ugric group of languages which in turn is a member of the Uralic family of languages. The Baltic-Finnic subgroup also includes Estonian and other minority languages spoken around the Baltic Sea.
