The mission of the Finnish-English Literary Translation Cooperative (FELT) is to promote Finnish literature in English translation and professionalism in Finnish to English literary translation.

All FELT members have published a minimum of two book-length Finnish to English literary translations outside of Finland and have a professional level of work and educational experience.

FELT translators abide by generally accepted principles of good translation as defined by the Translators Association, the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA), the Finnish Association of Translators and Interpreters (SKTL), and other relevant translation associations. FELT members work with creative fidelity to source texts and transparency in the translation process.
