Japan - Tests: 2

I have been working on English-Japanese Translation for a decade. I started my carrier as a freelance translator of Japanese Anime movies by Rain Software in 2005. One of my friends got this job for me and she kept giving me translation jobs, mostly IT related and medical related translations. Once I worked for a company who sells Italian barcode readers and did most of translation in house. I did all translation when communicating with Italian company, all manuals and specification info, financial documents etc... Most recently I worked on DVD project for UK comedy 'Red Dwarf' season 9&10. Enthusiastic fans of 'Red Dwarf' gathered to make DVD and sell in Japan, and I helped some of episodes to translate to Japanese. I even got my name (maiden name) on the package. I have very good skill of IT basics because I worked for IT related company for a long time. Therefore I am good at IT related translation because I understand all the terms.

Freelance Translator (Japanese - English - Malay)


Translation is about presenting the message in other language. From here, it can help the whole world be able to communicate even with a different language. In addition, in order to be better at the second or third language, it is important to practice it in daily basis, whether in writing or oral, especially if you are not the native speaker of that particular language. Hence, work such as translation and interpretation can help in improving ourselves. I never miss a chance to explore and gain more experience as this will also help us get to know the other culture. I have been working as a freelance translators, translated the documents in various fields such as IT, General law, electrical, electronic, games, animation etc. from Japanese language to English, vice versa, or sometimes English to Malay language.
