Fluent Finnish is a one-woman enterprise, owned and operated by Linda Hirvonen, who relocated to South Florida from Helsinki, Finland in January 2015.
I have graduated from University of Helsinki, Department of Finnish, Finno-Ugrian and Scandinavian Studies with Finnish language as my major, communication and Finnish literature as minor subjects. I am a certified English into Finnish translator by the American Translators Association, and I am comfortable with doing translations from Finnish into English as well. (ATA does not offer a certificate for FI-EN language pair at the moment.)
Over the past 15 years I have gained experience from a range of tasks in language services: I have done proof-reading, produced and edited journalistic content and texts for marketing, academia and business purposes and prepared formal documents for internal and external business communication both in Finnish and English. Recently I have also translated texts in the fields of law, business and technology from English into Finnish and vice versa. I have an academic background, and doing research on language and communication – especially on business-to-business (B2B) interaction – is one of my vices.
