I lived in Japan for several years and worked as a Japanese to English translator on a part-time basis. I recently returned to the UK and I am hoping to establish myself as a full time translator.
My experience in Japanese to English translation covers a fairly broad range of projects. I have translated corporate information, business correspondence, legal documents, magazine articles, technical and academic journal articles, manga and information for film festivals.
I do occasionally work into Japanese from English but I prefer to work into my native tongue. For English to Japanese my main experience is in writing internal and external business emails. As an English teacher I have translated sections of job, college and VISA application forms for Japanese clients. I have also translated interview responses from English into Japanese for magazines in Japan.
