About me

After studying translation for a few years in a university, I am starting to feel quite embarrassed of my earlier translations: they are really too literal, to the point that even some idioms and proverbs have been rendered "as they are" into Finnish, resulting in nonsense translations. I will try to take a look at some of the translations I have submitted here before and see if I can improve them a little.
