Japanese and English Translator
*Note: The hourly rate is negotiable. Estimates will be given when necessary.
Working as a Japanese/English translator for the past 15 years with an experience of working as an in-house translator for a major global electronic manufacturer headquartered in Japan. Native Japanese speaker, grown up in Japan. Have been living in the United States for over 20 years with a Broadcasting degree from a US college.
Areas of translation: general business, business proposals, R&D (research & development), manufacturing, disaster relief, legal, medical, travel & leisure, real estate, retail, venture business, finance, marketing & PR, surveys
My clients have given positive feedback on the speed of my work and the ability to convey the nuance of the original language to the target language.
My work incorporates my experiences in the office management and executive assistance in the bilingual environment (English and Japanese) - dealing with clients and colleagues both in Japanese and English daily, reading and writing bilingual business correspondences, understanding the cultural differences and acting as a liaison between two cultures. I have worked in Japan, Australia and the United States, so that I know the business cultures of different countries and different industries.
Other services: proofreading Japanese documents translated from English; writing English materials on behalf of Japanese people (not translating but writing to help them communicate with non-Japanese speaking people.)
