  3. Sayaka T.

    A receptionist at a hostel in Tokyo

    New Zealand - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 10

    I would like to work on projects such as Japanese-English translation, writing critiques/reviews of films with illustration, and art projects that allow me to express myself. I have NO previous experiences in translation and it is because I have never been given the opportunity before. I believe the problem with translation industry is that you always need to submit your previous works and prove how many projects you have done. If you are never given a chance, you cannot prove to the world what you are capable of. I was born in Japan and raised in Japan, but I chose to go to the US and Australia in highschool so I struggled through cultural experiences and became a bilingual. I have always put myself in customer service jobs because I truly enjoy face to face communication. I have been a server, a receptionist, and an English instructor. One of the aspects that fascinates me and motivates me is finding out needs and demands of the customers/clients and providing them services that exceed their expectation. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed my prevoius work experiences, I would like to keep challenging myself in new fields. I would like to start working online as a translator and an English tutor. I am very responsible and hard working. My weakness is that I sometimes push myself too hard and sacrifice hours to reach for perfection and to get my own satisfaction. I am willing to learn. I look forward to working with other highly skilled and talented individuals.

    Australia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2

    I'm currently working as a translator for university and various companies on a casual basis. I provide quality assured translation from Japanese to English and vice versa. I'm an expert in both Japanese and English. I don't do an exact word-to-word translation, instead, I deliver a beautifully written, customer-focused text. I pay attention to detail. I'll not only translate Japanese/English into an accurate and clear text but also fix the layout using Adobe Photoshop/ Illustrator and deliver a professional looking printable document format if you like. I've done a voice over in Japanese and English with Japanese accents for commercials, voice mail messages, corporate videos, games, animations, etc. A male voice is also available. I've also been teaching English and Japanese to all age groups at private language schools for 7 years in various countries. 100% human translation. Fast turn around, accuracy, and competitive rates.

    Japanese translator

    United Kingdom - Last active: 3 days ago - 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.
