Language design – more than just translating
Many Finns are capable of translating sentences from English into Finnish. This does not mean, however, that you should simply ask any Finn or Finnish agency to translate your company’s texts.
Finnish grammar and structure differ a lot from other languages. Literal translations from English almost never work. Texts need to be customised for the Finnish audience in order to ensure the proper flow, context and tone.
Grammatical errors and poor style can easily give the wrong impression and convey a cheap and unprofessional image. That is certainly not what any company wants for its brand.
A successful translation is not one that has been translated word for word but, rather, one that retains the meaning of the original text. At Jokiranta, we endeavour to do just that. Our language design approach always keeps its focus on the brand and business goals of the client.
Our services: language planning and content creation
Do you have a text that needs translating? Or have you already received a translation, but would like reassurance that its quality is up to par? Either way, we are here to help.
We also offer translation services in collaboration with our partner agency.
We select, condense and revise text material and polish its linguistic form in order to achieve a coherent text that supports the business goals and image of the company. Our approach involves the improvement of text structure, syntax and the choice of words and idioms.
We detect and correct grammatical, typographical and spelling errors.
We design and produce different types of texts for various platforms and media channels, both digital and print. Video production is also available.
