I am a recent college graduate with a degree in Japanese. I've spent the last few years translating as a freelancer for various clients, including through the translation service Gengo where I've completed over 300 jobs and hold a 9.9/10 rating for accuracy.
In 2016 I won first place in the 5th annual Manga Translation Battle hosted by the Digital Comic Association and the Japanese Agency of Cultural Affairs, where I also took home the prize for best student work.
Outside of professional work, I enjoy translating as a hobby as well. I often spend my free time translating content for fellow fans of various Japanese artists that I enjoy. This has given me experience in translating social media posts, song lyrics, and subtitling videos.
