About Finnish

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.


What form/s of interpretation do TJC Global's Finnish interpreters provide?

Image and video hosting by TinyPicSimultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership.  They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes. 

Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicConsecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere. 

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPicFacilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings.

The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue. 

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPicTelephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing.

The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
