Professional practices Tomoyuki Kono endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am a UK-based native Japanese translator with language-related degrees from Oxford University (BA and DPhil in Oriental Studies in ancient Indian languages, including Sanskrit and Pali). I received many years of thorough training in philology and translation prior to launching myself as a freelance translator. I currently work full-time as a freelance translator (English <--> Japanese) with several years of experience under my belt. My past projects include but are not limited to business, finance, marketing, pharmaceutical, medical, human resources, market research, hardware/software and IT. I also deal with websites, localisation and transcription. As a former editor in book publishing, I am also well qualified for proofreading jobs.

Another service I offer is voiceover. I am a native Japanese speaker from Saitama, just north of Tokyo, and my accent is identical to standard Japanese (hyojungo) spoken in national broadcasting media. I had ten years of acting experience as a child. I am articulate and can produce a variety of voices ranging from corporate materials to friendly announcements. My past projects in voiceover include tourism, corporate video, e-learning and training materials. I would be happy to provide audio samples upon request. I can produce high-quality audio files (e.g. 24 bit audio at sample rates of 44.1 kHz).

For several years I have been offering publishing consultancy services, with particular expertise in academic book production (e.g. editing and typesetting). My past and current projects include the Clay Sanskrit Library and Journal of the Oxford Centre for Buddhist Studies.

The main CAT tools I use are memoQ Adriatic, SDL TRADOS Studio 2017 and Wordfast Pro 4. I also use Adobe Creative Cloud (Acrobat, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) for jobs involving those file formats.

I can offer you highly competitive rates while delivering accurate and readable translations. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My CV is available to download.
