CV/Resume Japanese (DOC)
[personal background]
I am a native Japanese speaker with over 8 years experience as professional translator.

I was born in Japan but spent most of my childhood in Europe and USA. I returned to Japan in High school and obtained my BA in Tokyo Japan. I am currently residing in USA.

[professional experiences]
My background as professional musician gives me special knowledge in Music and Entertainment industries.

I have also worked for government contracted translation company as an operations manager where preparing official documents in both Japanese and English were required on daily basis. This position also taught me the importance of understanding the differences in customs and cultures when translating documents that are read by multiple clients from different backgrounds.

[my work philosophy]
Language is only a tool of communication. I believe translators must be aware that without understanding the intent of the writer and the background of the reader, there is always a bigger risk of what we all know as "lost in translation."
I also strive to provide translations that are clear and simple. There is no point in writing a novel when simple notes and instructions are needed.
