About me
Six years working as a freelance translator.

My translation experience as a freelancer has been primarily in the field of media (e.g. translation of videogame dialogue, video narration and television and educational materials), but I have also worked as a translator within a major Japanese life insurance company, translating business correspondence and press releases etc.

Although native in English, I was brought up bilingually and biculturally in the U.K. and am comfortable translating materials which require a sound understanding of the culture of Japan as well as a thorough knowledge of the language.

BA Hons in Japanese Studies,
Level 1 Japanese proficiency

Past translation work includes:
Press releases for Bandai Networks,
Software for Sony Playstation 2
Denpa Shonen TV programme transcripts
World Heritage Site video narration
(Payment received: 0.15USD per target word)

Television Industry experience:
Native English assistant on NHK educational English programme.
Currently working as a newsreader for NHK World.
Keywords: media, television, video game, narration, press releases, educational materials
