    Currently studying Linguistics and Japanese Studies at the University of Vienna, Austria. I am a Native Speaker of German, and have comparable abilities in English, French and Japanese. I have previously semi-professionally translated Japanese to English and vice-versa; though my command of the Japanese language has since grown significantly. With German being my mother language I hope that I can extend this activity to German-English and English-German.

    Japanese Translator

    United States - Tests: 1

    I grew up in Japan and after graduating from high school, I came to the US to go to college. I started working as an executive secretary in 1988 for Eastman Kodak Company after graduating from a community college. Since then I had several jobs, and most recently I work for a Japanese owned automotive company as a prototype planner. I have done some work on the side as a freelance and also done some translation as a full time translator when I was hired at JCI from 1995 to 2008. The area of my specialty is automotive, but I have done translation for different areas, such as scuba diving and hospitality (chamber of commerce).

    English - German - Japanese Translator

    Germany - Tests: 3

    German - mother tongue English - TOEFL IBT 107pts Japanese - JLPT N2 German is my mother tongue, I've studied English half my life (TOEFL IBT 107pts) and learned Japanese at university (JLPT N2). I've also been to Japan for an exchange year. I've always loved translating. English and German translations are easy for me, as for Japanese, I can easily translate from Japanese to German/English, the other way round might be a bit more tricky as of now. I've studied Japanese at a university of economics, therefore I've learned economical terms and translations of economical context are not as hard for me. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
