Education: I have studied Japanese language and culture for over ten years, including two years studying Japanese at Kyoto's prestigious Doshisha University. I hold the highest level 1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
Experience: Five years as a freelance translator of Japanese. I have translated material from a wide variety of fields, including manuals, patents, contracts, historical documents, business documents, manga, and novels.
I have over seven years experience in the computing industry as a software engineer, allowing me to deal confidently with complex technical material. I am also a capable and adaptable researcher, and can rapidly get up to speed even with unfamiliar subjects.
