    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

    Professional author of both fiction and non-fiction, specializing in the true crime, horror, thriller and mystery genres. I am a published author of a series of detective novels, all of which deal with increasingly harrowing subjects and themes. The reception to my work is overwhelmingly positive, something to which I attribute my deep understanding of story, structure, plot and character development. I always strive for the best in my work. I don't believe in doing something by halves. I have a great passion for anything relating to the mysterious, the unknown and the macabre. I have written countless books on unsolved mysteries, serial killers, cult leaders, occult phenomenon and infamous crimes. In addition, I have written TV scripts, video game storylines, choose-your-own-adventure books and even storylines for concept albums. I am degree-educated in criminal psychology and have a passion for anything psychology related. This particular area of interest has led me to work in vastly different areas than my usual fiction niche, such as relationship advice, articles about lie-detection and NLP, and even psychological evaluations of infamous criminals.

    I am a Japanese specialist who has been working in, and with, the Japanese language for the last 8 years. I did my undergraduate Bachelor of Arts at the School of Oriental and African Studies in the UK, a leading specialist institution for East Asian studies, graduating with a second-class honours degree in Japanese. After graduation, I worked for two years in a specialist educators role in the Tohoku region of Japan, spending time in an area that was still recovering from the impact of the 2011 tsunami and earthquake. I not only used Japanese on a day-to-day basis, but also earned my N2 JLPT qualification during this time. I then went on to work for both the Mainichi Shimbun and the Chunichi Tokyo Shimbun newspapers, a national and regional Japanese-language newspaper respectively. This role included extensive translation from Japanese into English, and occasional interpreting from English into Japanese. This gives me a level of professional fluency in both languages, as well as accurate proofreading and editorial skills. I have particular skills in Technical Translation, with a focus on the fields of Architecture, Urban Design, and geographic systems. I have a proven track record of successful translation projects for both design documentation and detailed planning drawings. This is supported by my academic experience with an MSc in Urban Studies, in which cross-linguistic texts were a fundamental portion of my research. I have experience working on freelance projects, and can provide examples of long-term projects where I have contributed using language skills if needed.
