After graduating from college with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature, I gained a thorough understanding of Japanese language and culture by living and teaching in Japan for six years. Upon returning to the United States, I started to build up experience as a Japanese-English interpreter in while doing hands-on technical work in the electronics repair industry. I have experience of Japanese corporate culture from working as a full-time interpreter and translator in two Japanese companies: a Japanese automobile manufacturer and a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer. The combination of my English Literature background with my experience of the automotive and electronics industry allows me to provide high-quality Japanese to English technical translations. Translation specializations: automotive, technical, IT, business.
I have had N1 Japanese certification since December of 2016.
