Jack L.

Japanese translator

United Kingdom - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

During my four year degree and total two years spent studying in Japan I have taken on numerous Japanese translating and interpreting roles. The majority of my experience lies in Japanese-English translation in particular proofreading documents and checking them against the Japanese originals for consistency and accuracy. My work has mainly been for individuals, often Japanese university students, but has also included working translating advertising flyers into English for small companies. I am especially interested in translation within the field of environmental science and the sciences more generally. I have a JLPT N1 accreditation and graduated Leeds University with a first in BA Japanese language. I have a strong grasp of the Japanese language and look forward to taking on many future translation jobs.

Masataka B.

Japanese Translator / Architect / Graphic Designer

United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

Thank you for checking my profile. I have been working or volunteering as a translator for the last three years. I always pay attention to the point that my translation won't be just a literal translation, but deliver the exact meaning which the authors want to express. In addition, I focus on the details of each page, such as composition of each object in the pages, the choice of fonts, the size and color of texts. I use Adobe Illustrator and Indesign for this purpose. Since my wife is an American who has been teaching English for 10 years in Mexico, Japan and the U.S, she will work with me as a proofreader when I work for Japanese to English translation. Furthermore, I have been working for many different types of jobs including 3D modeling, market research and data entries. I appreciate any other types of job offer too. Concerning the rate, please recognize the rate above is the average for all the different types of jobs I usually work for. If you have further questions, please feel easy to contact me. Thank you.
