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.
