The Finnish Association of Translators and Interpreters

The Finnish Association of Translators and Interpreters (SKTL) is a non-profit professional body that aims at fostering professionalism and quality in translation and interpreting. Our approximately 1.900 members are professional literary, document and audiovisual translators; court, conference and community interpreters, and researchers. The association has long traditions – it was founded in 1955 and is deeply rooted in the development of translation and interpreting in Finland.

SKTL participates actively in international organisations and maintains strong contacts within the translation and interpreting sector throughout the world. We are full and active members of FIT and EULITA. The Association is also involved in numerous literary organisations worldwide.

Please notice that SKTL does not provide any commercial translation or interpreting services.
