    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.
