FROM FINNISH TO ENGLISH
Ruut DeMeo holds a degree in English and Creative Writing from Goucher College and is certified through the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages as a native Finnish speaker. Ruut's original writing has been published in Finnish and English; she applies a deep cultural understanding of both languages to every translation project.
"I used Ruut DeMeo's translating services with my mother's old 1940's diaries. Unfortunately for me, the diaries are in Finnish and I don't speak Finnish. Thank goodness for Ruut! She translated two diaries and really captured the voice of a 1940's teen! In addition, my mom would frequently mention movies or songs or places and Ruut would add a footnote to say exactly what it was my mom was talking about. With the added links, I can jump right to the specific song the girls at camp sang to my mom on her 15th birthday. Ruut really went above and beyond with all of her help and expertise!"
