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.
