    Freelance Translator

    United Kingdom - Last active: 08/10/2014 - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

    I have more than 18 years experience in localization business, having worked as an in-house translator and language analyst (responsible for linguistic quality) at one of the top localization vendors for the last 15 years. I strongly believe the quality of translation is the most important aspect in localization. If translation quality doesn't meet the expectation of the end-users, meeting the tight deadlines or certain profitability is no use. Japanese is one of the most fussiest languages of all in terms of quality, and I hope to be able to contribute to the world of localization with the best of my abilities in bringing the standard of Japanese translation.

    Japanese Translator

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - 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.
