    Philippines - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 5

    With my experience living, studying and working in Japan for 6 years (1996~2002) and exposure to Japanese culture, standard/polite Japanese conversation and local/dialect conversation is one of my passport/skill of being employed in a Japanese Manufacturing firm since going back home last 2002 since to date. I started as Production Coordinator/Japanese Interpreter assigned for a local Manager. Then i was transferred under the office of the VP after 2 months with the same job description. I was again re-assigned to the office of the GM. He assigned me to different areas of the production not just for plant 1 alone but covering the 2 plants as well. I was doing that for more than a year. I was happy since i got to learns details on how a manufacturing company works. Year 2006 when my boss - the GM promoted me from being a Production Coordinator to become a Manager of Sales Department, still being a Japanese~English Interpreter/translator included in my job responsibilities. Currently, i am handling 4 departments, with the same company i worked since 2004. Aside from the verbal skill i have, i have translated almost all work instructions, procedures, business plans, policies, technical documents in the company and also act as the local window of all e-mails, communications from our head office in Miyagi, Japan. There are also times, i will be send to our sister company located in Luzon, to act as Japanese Interpreter/translator for new project/Japanese client. With the background i have, i want to utilize my time after my daily regular job to do translation job, data entry or any work offered within my capacity and time availability. My goal of doing this is to have more financial freedom for my family and to help my extended families and the foundation i supported. Thank you very much. Maria Suzeth

    Please visit www.suzukiconsulting.com for more details. I have had the privilege of running an IT consulting business between the US and Japan for 20+ years. Never stop growing and innovating, has been the lesson learned, as nothing stayed the same throughout my carrier, except for one rule: business success depends on the quality of communication you establish between your partner across the border. For Japan, language has always been, and will continue to be a barrier to establish such communication. Sometimes you will find a partner that has excellent English skills, but consider yourself one of the lucky few who found one. Most of the Japanese companies prefer localized contents, which you will need to generate, in order to penetrate the Japanese market you deserve to engage with. My role is to help you localize your English contents into Japanese to build this partnership, and expand your business into Japan the most cost effective and shortest time possible. Among all the translation companies, localization firms, I uniquely focus on the following key factors. 1) Focus on VIDEO CONTENTS Video contents (webinars, conferences, training videos, promotional videos, etc…) attracts the audience way more than printed/web material, and it can pack more information that any other media form. I can say by fact, very few Japanese companies read white papers but spend more time on YouTube searching for contents there. 2) Focus on Technical Contents in natural language. Traditional translation companies are often criticized on how ‘unnatural’ their translations are. They may be grammatically accurate, but one can easily tell a translation done by a person who is not familiar with the audience. My translation comes from real world business experience, and will ensure that it delivers your message to the audience in their ‘real world’ language. 3) Focus on timely delivery My voice over + caption work in Japanese is very fast. While I ensure the quality of the translation is top level, I deliver my output in a very short period of time. Most translation companies need to watch the video, take notes, translate the notes and then record phrase by phrase. I have the talent to directly record Japanese voice over with no notes, just by hearing the sound track in parallel. This makes me at least twice as fast as any translation company in Japan. 4) Professional recording equipment My other profession is a local recording musician in Southern California. I own professional recording equipment, which I use for this voice over translation work. You can expect CD level sound quality as for my output, which only very few translation companies can deliver (and most of charge VERY expensive rates). All of this know-how comes from my past business experience with Japanese and US high tech companies throughout my 20+ years in the industry. I have been born Japanese, and most of my education and professional career has been in Japan or in relationship with Japanese companies. I have connections with most of the large IT corporations in Japan, and made numerous business deals with them in my past. My recent deals have been in the Cloud Computing and Big Data market, so I continue to thrive in the cutting edge segment. I also lead a dedicated team of translators who are active experts in Korean and Chinese, so their translation quality is extremely accurate with full understanding of what the audience expects. I welcome quote comparison with other translation companies. Of course there will be more inexpensive offers, but I will be happy to explain why they are lower, and seek your decision with respect. Either way, I will guarantee you that my rates are the best you can get, matching the quality and speed you expect. Please free to contact me for reference translations, plus I will also provide you with a free sample translation of your contents so you can evaluate.
