    I'm currently working as a translator for university and various companies on a casual basis. I provide quality assured translation from Japanese to English and vice versa.

I'll not only translate Japanese/English into an accurate and clear text but also fix the layout using Adobe Photoshop/ Illustrator and deliver a professional looking printable document format if you like. I've done a voice over in Japanese and English with Japanese accents for commercials, voice mail messages, corporate videos, games, animations, etc. A male voice is also available. I've also been teaching English and Japanese to all age groups at private language schools for 7 years in various countries. 100% human translation. Fast turn around, accuracy, and competitive rates.
