    Japanese Translator

    United States - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a native English speaker and self-taught Japanese speaker of 3 years. I work regularly with native Japanese speakers, teaching them English and learning more about Japanese in return. I have a deep passion for the Japanese language and culture which is what drove me to learn it in the first place, and why I continue to work with it today. I work as a Senior Translator at the organization Watching America where I regularly translate Japanese news pieces into English. In addition to this I regularly lend my translation skills to various small projects where they can be put to good use. I am a highly technical-minded, detail-focused, and most importantly friendly individual to work with. As I regularly work with native Japanese, I have a deep appreciation and understanding of the nuances of the Japanese language, and my strong English grounding allows me to fluidly translate those nuances into natural English.
