Translator | Reviewer

My name is Milla Hyttinen, and I'm a professional linguist with a Master's Degree in Translation Studies. I started translating professionally from English into Finnish in 2006 and went on to establish a one-woman business called Lumetrans in 2009. Since then, I have worked with over 20 well-established translation agencies (such as SDL, thebigword, LocalSoft, Andiamo!, Creative Translation and Milengo) and other businesses (including AppTurbo and Booking.com), translating, transcreating and reviewing a wide variety of materials in my fields of expertise.

My forte is creative translation, and my (professionally relevant) personal interests include video and PC gaming, web and graphic design, apps and smart devices, photography and travel.

What You Get When You Choose Me

You want to keep your clients happy and coming back for more. You also want your translation projects to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible, with no time wasted and no unnecessary worry or headache. There are two things I can offer you to help you achieve this: expert translations that reflect your own high standards and attentive service to make your job easier.

EXPERT TRANSLATIONS


Proofreading can fix errors, but it can't turn a fundamentally average translation into a great one. In my books, a great Finnish translation is as fluent and as accurate as if a Finnish industry expert wrote it. As a translator, I set out to build a great translation from the start by ensuring that the following are in place:

Research

Research

Careful research forms a solid foundation for a quality translation. It's important to make sure that all content is properly researched and understood before any wordsmithery can begin.

Purpose

Purpose

The best translations are built for purpose. When every word is chosen and every sentence crafted with the purpose in mind – be it selling, instructing or entertaining – the result is highly effective and coherent.

Materials

Materials

A high-quality translation can only be built from high-grade materials, meaning natural-sounding sentence structures, phrases and words. They are not easy to come by, but make a world of difference.



ATTENTIVE SERVICE


You deserve a partner who is not only passionate about languages but also about providing you with the best possible service. Someone you can count on, who really listens, responds quickly and will always take your perspective into account. In return for your valuable business, my goal is to be the kind of translator that I would want to work with, more specifically someone who:

  • Responds to time-sensitive inquiries within 5 to 30 minutes (Mon–Fri 8.00–16.00 EET).
  • Communicates clearly to remove any uncertainty.
  • Reads project instructions carefully before starting the project.
  • Delivers a polished translation well on time.
  • Is readily available to answer questions and make any edits if needed after delivery.
  • Goes the extra mile to save your time, give you peace of mind and brighten your day.
