Professional objectives
  • Meet new translation company clients
  • Meet new end/direct clients


I am a veteran Tokyo-based translator and transcriber with more than 30 years of experience. I am also a theorist who develops frameworks for the evaluation of automated-translation output.

My background is principally in marketing and marketing research. Specifically, I have extensive experience in the following categories: fast-moving consumer goods, business services, automobiles & automotive products, health & hygiene products, as well as prescription pharmaceuticals & medicines, etc. What is more, I have also done a lot of work involving public policy and corporate communications.

Meanwhile, my extensive experience in the direct transcription of Japanese audio materials into English has mainly focused on healthcare professional interviews and other marketing research topics.

My client list includes many Fortune 500/Nikkei 200 companies, as well as numerous government and public institutions (both Japanese and global).
