Court interpreters for English to Finnish, Finnish to English and multiple other languages
It is vital for a court interpreter to have substantial experience and an understanding of legal proceedings when working in complex and challenging court cases. Communication in the courtroom may be more difficult than one might expect. This is often down to the use of legal jargon and specific terminology as well as the posing of negative or double negative questions by barristers and other legal professionals.
TJC Global’s highly qualified Finnish court interpreters can help prevent this and establish smooth, transparent communication between parties. They have an extensive command of legal terminology andare able to recognise difficult phrasing and pick up on colloquialisms, adjusting their interpretation accordingly. This ensures glitch-free court interpreting whatever the context.
We can provide assistance for court cases of various lengths, providing both short-term and long-term support. TJC interpreters and translatorsare also happy to work outside of court, for criminal cases; depositions; witness preparation; pre-trial meetings between attorneys, solicitors, barristers and clients and interviews with court personnel.
All our Finnish court interpreters are native speakers.
They have long term experience, often between 10-15 years and sometimes even more, in court and legal interpretation, as well as professional qualifications to match, ensuring language support of the highest-quality that you can rely on every time.
They combine advanced language skills with expertise in their chosen industry meaning they can offer a bespoke service to match your requirements.
By supplying high quality language support, we have earned the trust of hundreds of international law firms, governmental institutions, private companies and many other public and private organisations. To find out more about our previous clients, please click here.

Finnish is spoken by approximately 5 million people worldwide, around 91% of the population in Finland use it as a first language along with almost 5.5% of the population in Sweden, as well as minorities in Estonia, Russia and Norway. It is now one of the official languages of the EU.
Finnish is, along with Estonian and some lesser spoken languages around the Baltic Sea, a member of the Finnic branch of the Uralic language language family. It is similar in construction to Estonian but by no means mutually intelligible with it. Surprisingly, Finnish is not at all related to Skandivanian neighbouring languages such as Swedish and Norwegian but most people in Finland are able to speak Swedish as a second language and Swedish has official language status in Finland. Finnish also holds minority language status in Sweden.
Interestingly, it was not until 1863, that Finnish achieved official language status in Finland, before this, Swedish was the language used in government, education and literature.
Other minority languages spoken in Finland are Russian, Estonian, Finnish Romani, as well as the three Sami languages, Northern Sami, Inari Sami and Skolt Sami.
Finnish is written using the Latin alphabet minus the letter 'w' which is merely a variant spelling of 'v', plus three diacritics: Å, Ä, Ö. š and ž are also letters used to convey the sound of foreign loanwords, but can also be written as sh and zh. Finnish is written phonetically which makes it easy for native speakers to spell - each letter roughly equates to one phoneme.
The Finnish language is subject to modifiers and suffixes depending upon the case. There are 8 locative cases in Finnish plus the genative, accusative, nominative and other cases which affect nouns and adjectives. The subject is indicated through the use of suffixes added to the root of the verb.
