    Hi everyone! My name is Itsuki Yoshida. I am working as a freelance designer/Japanese-English interpreter & translator based in the UK. I have been working as a freelance interpreter/translator since 2017. I am a native Japanese speaker and a fluent English speaker. To prove my English skill, I have obtained an IELTS overall 6.5 scores in 2016, with that score I studied in a master's degree in the UK and graduated in 2017. I can confidently say that I am a flawless Japanese speaker who can express a bit more than ordinarily native Japanese speakers can do, as I have a deep interest and curiosity to the Japanese language. I translate the writings' contexts rather than translating literally as the Japanese language's grammatical structure is more flexible than English, and also some words are used in a different sense from the literal meaning of them. I always enjoy this process to make the translation more accurate. As I usually get one-time projects from clients, I have experienced in diverse subjects. Here are highlights of my experiences: 1. I have worked as a freelance project manager/ Japanese-English translator for RED BEE (at BBC Broadcast Centre) and I always provided an accurate translation & proofreading for their TV programs. I was also in charge of interpreting information from Japanese to English for my colleagues. 2. I have diverse experiences in translation & interpretation from a sales meeting to medical interview as a freelancer. My duty is a translation, proofreading (Email, presentation etc) and interpretation, depending on the clients' requirement I work holistically. *The list of experiences are available on my portfolio. 3. I have worked in two event management companies as a project manager and I was mainly in charge of projects that are related to my language skills. I was also in charge of translation/proofreading of documents that are related to their events, and also, I was in charge of translation from Japanese to English for the web-advertisement and marketing projects. (Banner, SNS, and brochure etc.) I can edit documents on Adobe Photoshop/Illustratior/ Indesign/Premiere and Microsoft Word/Powerpoint/Excel. I'm looking forward to working with you! Kind regards, Itsuki Yoshida

    I am an Italian native speaker, Japanese/English/Italian translator and interpreter active in Tokyo - Japan since 2010. After earning my PhD in Japanese Language and Culture in Ca' Foscari University (Venice) in 2008, I moved to Japan to improve my knowledge of the Japanese language and further my career. In Japan I have worked as proof checker (electronics, video games, etc), English conversation teacher, Italian language teacher and freelance translator/interpreter to/from Italian, English and Japanese. My major experience in a Japanese company was in a travel agency (as the only non-Japanese employee) for 4 years. There I could gain significant experience in producing/translating business correspondence, tour itineraries/pamphlets, translating legal contracts, MoUs, company profiles, newspaper articles, product catalogs etc. As an employed/freelance translator and interpreter, I continue cultivating day by day my expertise in various fields of translation, though I believe my strongest point is to be my knowledge of Japanese people, society and culture. I strive to deliver translations not of words and phrases, but of the true meanings within them.

How to Hire Top English to Japanese Translators

What is an English to Japanese translator?

Working with clients and customers in Japan often requires having access to someone who is skilled in English-to-Japanese translation. There are many ways language translation services can be useful for your organization, whether it’s transcription services, translation of legal documents, or direct verbal translation.

How do you hire an English-to-Japanese translator?

You can source English-to-Japanese translator talent on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in an English to Japanese translator.
  • Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  • Shortlist and interview English-to-Japanese translators. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of English-to-Japanese translator you need to complete your project. 

How much does it cost to hire an English-to-Japanese translator?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced English-to-Japanese translator may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their English-to-Japanese translating services more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. 

How do you write an English-to-Japanese translator job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample English-to-Japanese translator job post titles:

  • Need someone fluent in Japanese to translate business documents from English
  • Looking for expert in Japanese language and culture to help with movie script
  • Need Japanese speaker to accompany me to Tokyo for education conference

Project description

An effective English to Japanese translator job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From reading and writing in both English and Japanese to understanding Japanese culture, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries, events, or documents, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.
