multilingual communication professionals. Our members work in professions such
as translation, interpretation, technical writing and project management or as
specialists in localisation and communication in different fields. In other
words, we represent the interests of language and communication experts who are
specialists in Finnish, other languages or both.
We currently have and represent approximately 2,300 members. The vast majority of our members are employed by others, but over 10% are self-employed. KAJ also represents university students majoring in translation and language studies.
