Bio

My first translation specialism is education, having spent over 12 year working in Higher Education. My Higher Education experience specifically falls into corporate governance, student recruitment and marketing, admissions, postgraduate policy and strategic development, funding administration, and quality assurance and enhancement.

Along with an MA in Translation and Interpreting (University of Manchester, 2010), I hold a BA in Japanese Studies with Japanese Language (University of Winchester, 1995) and an MA in Advanced Japanese Studies (University of Sheffield, 2000), and my second specialism is Japanese social history, culture, film, politics and literature. During my BA, I spent a year studying at two universities in Japan (Oita University and Nagoya Sugiyama Jogakuen). More recently, I studied Japanese full-time at Yamasa Institute, Okazaki, where I completed 1542 hours of study, in addition to a 10-week Business Japanese and Business etiquette course.

I have been extremely fortunate to have lived in Japan several times amounting to five years in total, and I have a good knowledge of the country, culture and cuisine through travel across most regions. I am particularly interested in modern Japanese history (from Meiji Period onwards), Japanese food and I love singing J-Pop at karaoke!
