I am a freelance translator looking for career opportunities. In the university, I have passed numerous practical translation courses: Literary translation (French-Estonian, English-Estonian) and Audio-visual translation/Subtitling (using Subtitle Edit, also learned how to translate Youtube videos). I know how to use CAT tools (Matecat, Smartcat) and own Fluency Now and Fluency Transcription licences. Currently, I work in 4 translation platforms. My work is always carefully reviewed and done on time, as I am very organized, motivated and punctual.
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 always been passionate about languages and translating. In my opinion, translating is a fascinating field!
I have studied several languages at university but specialized in English and French.
In addition to that, living and working in different countries and continuous self-development have raised my linguistic competences to a very high level.
I have extensive work experience in translating and writing in different languages. I have been active as a translator since 2008 and have worked with various texts from marketing to user manuals. I have also experience as a freelance journalist and editor.
I am a creative person who is well-organized and punctual.
When it comes to translating, quality is of utmost importance. The end result has to be beautiful, grammatically correct and sound natural.

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.
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.
