Why did I create this blog?

I am a medical and technical translator working from English and French into my native tongue, Finnish. A great deal of my work consists of translating and editing of pharmaceutical texts (SPCs, labels, PLs) where I must stick to the wordings of EMA (European Medicines Agency) templates. Unfortunately I spend too many hours answering the questions of my clients –  questions that could be avoided if the Finnish templates were better…!  This blog is an attempt to create discussion about these templates, the language of pharmaceutical texts  and the Finnish language in general and, hopefully, to  improve the quality of the templates.
