    Japanese/English Translator

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 3

    I am a native Japanese living in the United States with a 15-plus-year experience as a Japanese and English translation. The areas of translation include general business, business proposals, R&D (research & development), manufacturing, disaster relief, legal, medical, travel & leisure, real estate, retail, finance, marketing & PR, surveys and academic. My strengths are the speed of work and the ability to make the translated work sound natural in the target language. I also proofread Japanese documents translated from English as well as write English materials for Japanese people (not translating but writing to help them communicate with non-Japanese speaking people.) 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 culture of different countries and different industries. *Note: The hourly rate is negotiable depending on the project, and I will give estimates for the fixed rate projects as necessary.

    English-Japanese Translator / Writer

    Australia - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 4

    < Translation > I am a native Japanese translator who completed 7 months of Japanese teaching training. I have been learning/using English for over 20 years now and have lived in English speaking countries (the US, Cyprus, Australia and New Zealand). My precise knowledge, great attention on the context and tiny details, and expressiveness in writing allow me to convey the messages of the original writer accurately and effectively. Most clients receive a lot of questions and suggestions from me. I contribute not only as a translator but by helping clients provide better services for the audience/customers. My past jobs include translating websites, iOS/Android applications, eBook, product descriptions, emails/letters, which brought satisfactory results to the clients and positive feedbacks to myself. < Writing > I have about a year of experience in newsletter writing and web contents writing, both about music and movies. My writing style is usually simple, witty and not terminological. Having been interacting with so many non-native English speakers with diverse background, I can benefit your projects especially if you have readers worldwide. My creative writings were acclaimed at my solo painting exhibitions as well. (I am an artist.) I have been travelling -- to the US in April 2013, 2.5 months in Cyprus from November 2013, 3 months in Australia and New Zealand respectively -- and the journey continues for a long time. If you are looking for a travel writer, I can provide numbers of stories from unique perspective, too. Thank you for your consideration. I am sincerely looking forward to working with you soon!
