    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.
