Start-up freelancer with 3 years experience living and working in Japan as an English Instructor. Immersive acquisition of Japanese and experience translating and proofing students' work, creating Japanese/English resources for school, providing impromptu interpreting services in social settings at community events or for coworkers in need of services in Japanese, and volunteering with an international film festival as part of the translation department providing proofreading and support translations.

Working with languages is a skill, but also an art which is the difference between a human translation versus a machine one. Machines translate things literally but often loses a lot in translation as it can't pick up the feeling or tone behind the words. That is the joy of translation for me, finding the wording that not only clearly and concisely conveys the literal meaning but also the feelings and tone of the message as well. "Capturing the nuance" per se.
