Thanks to Steve Mollman, my name and service were introduced in CNN articles!


Comments from clients





Native Japanese freelancer handling E>J translation, Voice Over Audio Service(Japanese only, Female voice) and Transcription(Japanese only).

Main service is E>J translation, however I am versatile, and have done
many things upon requests.

Freelancer can move around freely, and the cost is lower than agencies!



Please contact me if you have some needs like...
Translation (English into Japanese)



  • Marketing(Advertisement, Flyer, Brochure, Copywriting, Product/Service
    introduction, Web contents, Survey, etc.)



  • Tourism(Airline, Hotel, Travel guide, Restaurant, Survey, etc.)


  • Manuals(How-to guide for house hold/personal items)


  • Other(E-mail, Letter, etc.)

If you are planning to market your products or services to Japanese, then
you need READABLE/UNDERSTANDABLE translation. Not WORD-to-WORD translation,
it will not attract Japanese. Language difference is cultural difference.
Literly translation is very important but the most important thing is that
the translation carries the meaning and it should be readable and up-to-date
Japanese. Language is a life. New words are born every day. Being native
Japanese help chatching up those changes.

I aim to provide good quality English into Japanese translation by putting
my feet in your shoes. You are welcome to provide me your vision, goal...all
kinds of thoughts in your mind when you provide me with translation material.
Any type of information related to you and your company will help my work.

    -Provided serive: Translation-

    There is really not enough good words I can say about the quality of work coming from Michiru Yabu. Being an expert on online marketing in Japan I deal not only with clients from different fields but also with my own needs for the Japanese online market. This more often than not requires large amounts of translations on various topics and often the translation must not only be precise but represent a good sales copy and a material that is pleasant to read. Michiru san has excelled in all these areas. If you are looking for quality copy I reccommend Michiru san with all my enthusiasm. SEO Japan (japan-online-marketing.com)

    To Whom It May Concern:



    I've been Michiru Yabu's supervisor at Property Trackers during the Global
    Home translation project.

    It is a pleasure to promote Michiru because she consistently meets and
    often exceeds her job requirements.



    Michiru is an enthusiastic, dedicated translator with reliable work habits.

    She often does not need guidance or supervision, but willingly accepts
    it when offered.

    She is consistently successful in improving her skills, and she works hard
    to do so.



    Michiru is always willing to pitch in to help the team, and she gets the
    job done right the first time.

    She is efficient in planning projects, punctual in meeting deadlines, and
    conscientiously adheres to company standards and guidelines.



    You'd be hard pressed to find an employee more dedicated than Michiru,
    and I recommend her as a professional translator. If you'd like more information,
    I'd be happy to provide it.

    Please call the phone number below and ask for me by name or visit our
    website on http://www.globalhome.eu to see the quality of her Japanese translation.



    Sincerely,
