    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.

    Japanese-English-Spanish Translator

    Spain - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 4

    I graduated from Valencia University (Spain) in 1999, where I obtained a PhD Degree in 2010. In 2008, I received a Master's Degree in Japanese Linguistics at Kobe City University of Foreign Studies. My field of studies is comparative linguistics between the Japanese, English and Spanish languages. However, I have dedicated an important part of my research to studying translation. I am currently teaching English and Spanish language and didactics at three Spanish universities. Before becoming a teacher I was hired for three years by the Japanese local authorities to work as Coordinator for International Relationships between a Japanese Prefecture (Gifu) and Spain. I also worked for the Tokyo branch of Lladró, an important Spanish porcelain company. On the other hand, I have worked in several occasions as an interpreter. Once, I even had the chance to be the interpreter for a Spanish magazine in an interview with Literature Nobel Prize Kenzaburo Oé. Recently a Spanish publisher, Satori Ed., has published two of my Japanese-to-Spanish translations of some Japanese classic literature authors.

    United States - Last active: 4 months ago - Tests: 1

    I am a freelance English/Japanese translator with over 25 years experience, who lived for 17 years in Japan. I am fluent in reading/writing of English/Japanese. A literal translation from Japanese to English does not take into account the regional, cultural or habitual distinctions of your American target reader. It is typically chunky and hard to read, but most agencies send you this as a finished product. My translation can be actually understood by your target audience. My extensive experience in working with world top Japanese/English corporations includes: Japan Travel, Toda Construction, Mitsubishi Bank, TEAC America, Toyota Technical Center, Isuzu Motors, Edwards LifeScience to name few. The projects which I worked in the past including: automobile, banking, computer, education, medical, real estate, stock market, website, manuals and more. Contact me for any questions you might have. I look forward to hear from you!
