In Finland there are about 16 inhabitants per square kilometre – in Germany there are 226. Finland is thus one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe. However, the Finnish language plays an important role not only in Finland. Finnish interpreters and translators are therefore needed everywhere.

Here are our answers for the perfect Finnish interpreter!
Finnish interpreters are needed on many occasions. Generally speaking, we can distinguish between different forms of interpreting:
A consecutive interpreter does not translate the spoken words into English, German or the other required language until the speaker has finished speaking. Nowadays, a Finnish consecutive interpreter is mainly used for ceremonial occasions such as weddings.
Simultaneous interpreters can provide simultaneous interpretation thanks to modern interpreting technology (microphones, interpreting booths, etc.). This form of interpreting is particularly common at conferences and meetings. Simultaneous interpreting, however, is very strenuous for the interpreter, which is why there are often several interpreters taking turns.
Whispered interpreters are a special kind of simultaneous interpreters who work without technical aids. The whisper interpreter sits directly next to the listener and whispers the Finnish interpretation directly into their ear.
Telephone interpreters are used for telephone conversations or negotiations scheduled at short notice and are connected to the conversation by telephone. This enables them to remotely interpret into Finnish consecutively or simultaneously.
Relay interpreters are used for languages that are less widely spoken. In this form of interpreting, a less common language is first interpreted into English, which then serves as a template for interpretation into other languages. In this case, the English interpreter is only a midpoint in the interpreting process.
The recommended form of interpreting varies depending on what the requirements are. While a simultaneous interpreter is needed for larger meetings with many participants, a telephone interpreter can also interpret a short conversation into Finnish. Different situations require different types of interpreters.
Furthermore, interpreters also differ according to their area of expertise. While conference interpreters ensure smooth communication at trade fairs, meetings and conferences, for example, court interpreters are used for Finnish-speaking witnesses in hearings and trials. A profession almost in its own right is the wedding interpreter, who, as the name suggests, interprets for the international audience at registry office weddings and celebrations.
With a Finnish interpreter from lingoking, you are on the safe side linguistically: we provide highly trained interpreters for every language. Every interpreter is obliged to sign a confidentiality agreement and the interpreters' code of honour in advance. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange a Finnish interpreter who is sworn in by a court, which is necessary, for example, for weddings, legal disputes or inheritance matters. With lingoking, you can benefit from the linguistic skills of a Finnish interpreter who has been working in his or her profession for several years.

Travelling alone in a foreign country without regional language skills can quickly become a nightmare when unforeseeable things happen. At lingoking, we provide Finnish interpreters worldwide. For tours through Finland, we recommend an escort interpreter, who will accompany you on the entire route and can thus take over communication at any time.

We will only provide you with Finnish interpreters who are suitably qualified for your specialist areas and have an understanding of Finnish customs. On request, the use of sworn interpreters, for example for notary appointments, is also possible.
It’s not only German - Finnish interpreters that are in great demand, but also the combinations Spanish - Finnish and English - Finnish. We will be happy to provide you with an individual offer. Simply fill out the contact form or give us a call.
Sworn Finnish interpreters are qualified to translate at court hearings. A sworn Finnish interpreter is always called in when one of the parties involved does not have the necessary Finnish language skills to understand everything. This must be ensured so that the trial can proceed properly. After all, the trial can be fair for all parties involved only if it is ensured that the accused party understands everything and, in turn, the defence does not have to overcome any additional hurdle due to the language barrier. This allows the process to be fair for all parties involved.
