Having had an art oriented higher education (BFA), as well as professional experience in all of these three areas, I am a confident, passionate and dependable employee. Translation is a family business that I have had the opportunity to observe and participate in for a couple of years. The languages I know well are German, English, Russian and Japanese, which I studied during extensive travel and while living in different countries. On the other hand, editing is a professional field that has become available to me through an internship at Time Out magazine in London. Please view my artwork on this profile and visit my LinkedIn profile to see recommendations from my latest internship. Lastly, working online offers three things that are important to me in a career: being on a flexible schedule, experiencing diversity and being able to travel without abandoning my work.

    Japanese - English Communications Specialist

    Australia - Last active: 04/04/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    Through Nippon Communications, I offer bilingual communications and creative support for businesses operating in Japanese and English-speaking transcultural markets. http://www.nipponcomms.com/ From small businesses that require immediately effective communications solutions to businesses and communications agencies working with large Japanese corporations and industry partners, our services flexibly caters to a range of Australian and English-speaking businesses working in or with Japan. Clients I have worked with include: Toyota Motor Corporation, Dentsu, Denso, Bertelsmann, Academy of Information Technology, University of New South Wales, Rotor Studios, Oddfellows Advertising, Spinnaker Films BACKGROUND Since the age of two, I have lived in four different countries: Japan, The United States, Singapore, and currently hold a permanent residency in Australia (further info in my Linked In profile below). Due to this particular upbringing, I am native in both languages and cultures. When most linguistic professionals are native in one language and strong yet not native in another, this is a unique advantage for clients who require a specialist who is capable of identifying, translating and interpreting the subtlest of nuances in both languages. At Nippon Communications, I combine my bilingual and bicultural expertise with my background as an advertising, marketing and communications specialist (honed at Oddfellows Dentsu). This ensures that every work I produce, or assist in are done so with the end communications objectives in mind. For example, when your translated documents need to make an emotional impact on your clients, speak the language of your particular target audience, or simply needs to resolve a business problem caused by cultural barriers, I apply a multi-tiered approach that best leads to a long-term solution. WHY FREELANCE My work through Nippon Communications is crucial in flexibly supporting an organic fashion social enterprise I co-founded with a dear friend. http://www.returnthisway.com/ The social enterprise also aims to be a bridge between Japan, Australia, and various cultures around the world.
