Bio

Recent projects:

I created the English subtitles for episodes 9 to 16 of a Thai series called Oh My Ghost and I translated Netflix's English subtitles into Thai for Episode 1 of The 43. However, both of these shows were QC’d by someone else so a few changes were made to my subtitles before they were made public, and I had little control over the final product.

I consulted on Comedy Central UK's edition of Takeshi's Castle Thailand. In this role, I transliterated the names of the contestants and characters on the show and I transcribed/translated the Thai dialogue into English to help the network eliminate any potentially offensive content. 

I have a few months' experience as a Thai Localisation Quality Assurance Technician for mobile and console games, and I am credited for my work as a Thai Localisation Quality Assurance Technician in the PlayStation 4 game “Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite”. In this role, I tested the Thai content in the game - UI strings and subtitles for cutscenes - and made corrections to ensure that the Thai text was displayed correctly and free of errors.

I have also worked as a consecutive face-to-face interpreter for British social services, the Ministry of Justice, Cafcass, and the National Health Service (NHS) in Greater London and other areas of England and Wales.


Background:

I have lived and studied for several years in Thailand, Australia, and England. Now I'm based in Lisbon, Portugal, and I'm learning European Portuguese.


Having been immersed in more than one culture, I am sensitive to the nuances of the terms used by different cultures. Humanity is a rich and varied tapestry and I appreciate our differences as well as our similarities the more I learn.


The arts and humanities are my favourite subjects.


I regularly consume a lot of media in English, and occasionally, a little bit in French and Turkish.


My maximum typing speed is around 120 WPM with over 95% accuracy. My daily output of translation is around 2,500 per day.


My daily output of audio/video transcription/subtitling is around 15 minutes of audio/video per day for moderately-paced comedy/drama/documentary content.


For audio/video content with a higher rate of words spoken per minute, such as company webinars, I can subtitle around 35 runtime minutes (around 5,000 words) in three days, and under 30 runtime minutes (around 4,000 words or fewer) in two days.


For more information, please see my LinkedIn profile or send me a message. Thank you.
