Mary Nurmisen kuvaMary Nurminen is a teacher of human and machine translation, interpreting, and technical writing at Tampere University. Her recently defended PhD thesis first explored contexts in which non-translators consume raw machine translation, then investigated the factors in those contexts that influenced how people use and receive raw MT. Before joining academia in 2013, Mary spent 13 years at Nokia and 5 at Lionbridge. She worked in technical communications and localization as (in this order) practitioner, manager, solution architect and consultant.
