    Japanese Voice Over / Translation professional

    United States - Last active: 01/20/2014

    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.

  9. Heidi Cherachat

    Japanese/English translator and Japanese tutor

    United States - Last active: 10/26/2014 - Tests: 1

    As a graduate of an international bilingual school in central Japan, not only did I learn how to speak, read, and write Japanese fluently, but I also learned about the culture from first hand experiences. Since then I have been translating documents from Japanese to English and from English to Japanese. I am familiar with the Japanese business language and as such have translated product information, manuals for vehicles, instructions, business letters, and I have provided simultaneous interpretation. In addition to translating and interpreting Japanese, I also have several years of experience as a tutor, English or Japanese, for young kids and adults. I have a passion for the Japanese language and culture as well as a passion to excel and provide the best possible translation.
