    Japanese/English Translator and Interpreter

    United States - Last active: 09/23/2013 - Tests: 4

    I am truly bicultural, with native fluency (speak, read, and write) in both English and Japanese. I have been a translator since I was 15 years old. I was born in Japan to Japanese parents, and relocated to the U.S. at age 2. As an ex-Pat family, I went back to Japan between the ages of 8-12 where I continued to keep up with my English skills. When I returned to the U.S., I attended The Japanese Weekend School in order to keep up with my Japanese language in case we were relocated again. We spent every other summer in Japan for 2 months at a time. At Bucknell University, the Japanese professor took me under her wings and created a Independent Studies course, which was college level Japanese work. Since graduation, I have worked in various Fortune 500 companies utilizing my language fluency and cultural know-hows. Now that my children are all in school, I am available to work from home. I am also available for interpretation, and voice overs at a different pay rate. My field of expertise is in skincare and fashion.

    Sho Fukuda

    Professional Japanese-English Translator

    United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Portfolio: 7

    Hello, my name is Sho Fukuda, and I am a Japanese-Born US-dwelling English-and-Japanese Speaker, and do both fluently. I have experience in translating to and from Japanese for both Video Games and Anime, and have been part of both industries for a number of years. I was born in Japan, but grew up in the United States. This means that I both have an intimate understanding of Japanese and English Culture, as well as the finer nuances of Japanese and English humor, sarcasm, and jokes/puns. It has been too often that bad translation results in a bad finished product, and I have been commended by both my previous CEO and respected members of the Entertainment Industry that my skills could change the way localization works permanently. Because I have worked so closely with Major Industry Partners, I am unable to disclose specific companies and projects in writing, but I will be more than happy to discuss these verbally or indirectly. I work fast and accurately, and I know for certain that I will be able to provide the most value through my work. I have professional experience with photo-editing/drawing software, so I am also able to translate "image words", such as sound effects in comics, in addition to non-copyable static text. Here is a quick list of my professional-and-related work: ☆2005-2008  Howard Payne University  English Writing Center  Checked and edited students' papers ☆2007  Novel Translation (Unreleased) ☆Before 2008  Freelance Translation  Freelance Interpretation ☆2008-2010  Translation for popular Doujin Circle "French Letter" for free distribution   Translation of text, as well as sound effects and art editing  Yoyogi Animation College Staff Project Translation (Unreleased) ☆2008-2011  Freelance Translation for Anime project   Cannot put in writing due to Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) ☆2009  For Cycling website "CYCLOCHANNEL" and "Cycloimage"   Translation for Voiceovers   Translated from spoken word of various European Accents ☆2010-2011  Digital Works Entertainment   PSP Game "The Little Battlers" (ダンボール戦機)    UI Designer    Visual and UI English Checking    In-Game English Checking    Includes sequel "The Little Battlers: BOOST" (ダンボール戦機 BOOST)   Advisor for English Language-related Projects   Tokyo Gameshow English Presenter   Translation/Interpretation for Tokyo Gameshow   Translation/Interpretation for E3   Head of International Projects (Companies cannot be put in writing due to NDA) ☆2011-2014  Digital Works Entertainment   Set up Cambodian Branch   Head of International Relations   Head of Translation   Head of Project Manual Translation   Head of Relations to Nintendo of America   Head of Relations to Sony Computer Entertainment America/Europe   Head of International Research and Development   Direct Translator/Interpreter for CEO  Singapore Branch   Branch Set-Up Support   Head of Interviewing ☆2008-Present  Freelance Translation/Interpretation
