Estonian/English/French translator with 3 years’ experience and over 2,000 pages of source material translated. 

Linguistic profile

While a native Estonian speaker, I grew up immersed in English, which has equipped me with native-like proficiency. In addition, I spent 5 years living, studying, working and travelling in Anglophone countries – primarily the UK – gaining deep insight into the cultural and societal nuances of life in Britain, as well as detailed knowledge on differences between American and British English.

My third language is French, which I have learnt throughout primary, secondary and higher education, gaining a BA in French language and culture in 2009, followed by a year living in Biarritz. In 2019, I returned to South-West France to live and set up my translation business here.

Professional background & specialisations

I began translating professionally in 2016, having found my way back to linguistics after pursuing other passions and interests, including:

  • environmental issues, nature and wildlife (MSc in Ecotourism + 2.5 years spent working in RSPB, one of Europe's largest nature conservation organisations + varied volunteering work);
  • research and academia (2 years as a coordinator of a major EU-financed international research project in the interdisciplinary field of educational sciences and digital technology);
  • art and art history (upper secondary school with a specialisation in art);
  • events and tourism (MSc in Ecotourism + 2.5 years as a major events coordinator + work in hotels).
In addition to the above, my other work and life experiences and, in particular, my personal interest in a wide variety of subjects coupled with excellent work ethic, research skills and attention to detail have enabled me to pursue translation work in many different fields, in particular:

  • legal (contracts, policies, legislative documents, court rulings, etc.);
  • technical (operator manuals for industrial machinery, user manuals for home appliances, engineering calculations, etc.);
  • communication and marketing (press releases, web content, articles, correspondence, etc.);
  • IT (software descriptions, UI texts, user instructions, etc.);
  • finance (invoices, online payment systems, etc.);
  • corporate (internal policies, HR documents, training material, etc.);
  • general – art and culture, history, food and drink, retail, etc.
