    Japanese to English Translation | Copywriting | Editing | Subtitling

    Australia - Last active: 10 hours ago - Tests: 1

    We all know there is more to a good translation than simply finding the right word in the dictionary. A good translation is not only accurate, but grasps the nuances of the source language to convey the true meaning of the text. Let me help you share your voice. I hold a Bachelor of Asian Studies majoring in Advanced Japanese and have 5 years of experience as a Japanese to English translator. I attended high school and university in Tokyo, Japan. I specialise in translating complex and creative texts, such as documentaries, radio plays, technical writing, and marketing communications. I have experience working in Japanese corporations and can translate all types of business correspondence, including company policies, memos and Board meeting minutes. I am a native English speaker and work confidently in either British or American English. I pride myself on crafting exceptional parallel copy in English targeting U.S., U.K, and/or Australian audiences. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

    Japanese/English Translator

    United States - Last active: 8 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.
