I am licensed translator Finnish - Arabic and I have extensive experience to translate officially certificates for private persons (education, marriage, divorce, employment, etc.), official company documents (articles of association, extracts from the trade register, etc.) and contracts.

I have also extensive experience to translate officially all kind of documents for the authorities.

I have also extensive experience in translating from Finnish into Arabic language annual and interim reports, press and stock exchange releases, customer and personnel magazines, brochures, marketing/advertising texts, Internet and Intranet texts, quality and environmental manuals, contracts, patent applications and film dialogues. 

I check and edit a variety of texts written by non-native or non-professional speakers in Arabic. They include annual reports, customer magazines, university theses, and film scripts - even the letters of ordinary people!

 I am happy to give help and advice on Arabic language-related questions by phone, email or face-to-face. I am available to answer your questions at any time.


 Here are some points to remember when ordering translations or language checking/editing services.


I am Licensed Translator Finnish – Arabic.

Length, subject matter and style of the text

 Please send me the entire text you want translated/checked, so that I can better estimate the final cost. The time it takes to do a translation depends on the length of the text, as well as on its subject matter and level of difficulty. Please let me know the purpose of the text and the target group, and whether you want the translation to be word-for-word, or more creative and free. I prefer to receive documents in electronic form (e.g. MS Word).

Background information and terminology

 If you have any material related to the translation or previous translations on the subject, please provide them to make the translation work easier and more consistent. Please inform me if you wish me to use your company’s established terminology. I prefer to have a contact person whom they can approach with questions concerning the text.


 When making an order, please let me know when you require the translation to be returned. Quality work takes time, so contact me well in advance. Urgent work throws off my schedule and adds to me’ workload, so I may have to charge extra. However, I always inform my customers of additional costs beforehand.

Licensed translations

 If you need a licensed translation (e.g. certificates, extracts from the trade register, articles of association, etc.), I must see the original document to ensure its authenticity. Please bring me or send me the original document for copying by post or you can show the original when collecting the finished translation. Your translation will be stamped and signed by me as a licensed translator Finnish - Arabic.

Certified / Authorized Translation

Most of the translations do not have or even need authorization/certification. Authorization/Certification is required only if a translated document is to be presented to Finnish or foreign authorities. Same applies to documents to which competent authorities (magistrates, town halls) have affixed apostilles as part of the legalization procedure required by a state which is party to the Hague Convention of 1961. Demand for an apostille is determined on a case-by-case basis, and you should always ask your authorities in advance if it is necessary in your particular case. Authorization/Certification of a document makes it legally valid.

Below are a few examples of documents that might need to be authorized/certified before they are presented to authorities in or outside Finland or for example insurance companies abroad in the language of the country in question:

  • Birth certificates
  • Vital records certificates
  • Marriage certificates
  • Death certificates
  • Diplomas, graduation certificates
  • Medical records, doctors’ notes, bills for hospital treatment or health care
  • Rulings by KELA, Migri, Police, and other authorities
  • Wills, powers of attorney, and other notarial acts
  • Judgments and other legal documents

A translator is awarded authorization/certification by the Education Board only after the candidate has proved his(her) qualification and knowledge though the exam arranged by the Board annually in a number of Finnish towns.
