Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I hold the title of Docent in Translation Studies since 2013. From August 2009 till August 2023, I worked as a University Lecturer (Senior Lecturer) in Swedish Translation and Interpreting Studies.

My doctoral dissertation from 2008 was translation-theoretical, and focused on semiotic approaches to translation. I have continued my research on semiotic and general translation theory and the semiotics of translation. My current research interests also include translator training and intracultural translation, a phenomenon that is central in Finland with two official languages. In addition, my research focuses on Easy Language (Easy Finnish and Easy Swedish) as well as Easy Language adaptation conceived as translation.
