My good friend once complimented regarding my translation, saying: "your translated sentences turn out really nice even if I put it back on Google Translate. I mean, even better than if I were to take random but formal Japanese or English texts from the internet and do the same. How to say... your words flow smoothly, like crystal clear stream." He was a little poetic, but I think that's saying something about my skills. I am a bilingual translator of Japanese and English, offering more than 5 years of experience in writing and translating in business.

I am very fluent in English, Japanese and Tagalog (Filipino). As such, I do a lot of translation and content creation in those three languages. This is currently my field of specialization. I have translated everything from websites and mobile apps to technical documents, like patents and white papers. A great bulk of my work experience, however, lies in finance-related and legal translation. I also do transcription and subtitling, and I am familiar with relevant software like Trados, Matecat, MarsEditor and Aegisub. I have recently moved to Thailand to study Thai, and I hope to add it to my skill set after a few years.

I'm currently working as a translator for various companies along with a Japanese proofreader who is a 70 year old retired Japanese business man. We provide quality assured translation from English into Japanese and vice versa. We don't do an exact word-to-word translation, instead, we deliver a beautifully written, customer-focused text. I've done a voice over in Japanese and English with Japanese accents for commercials, voice mail messages, corporate videos, games, animations, etc. I've also been teaching English and Japanese to all age groups at private language schools for 10 years in various countries.
