Native Japanese born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. I have lived in U.K., Canada, Malaysia, Philippines. I have been working as a professional translator since 2016.
I am very passionate about learning English, which I have studied for more than 15 years. I would love to connect people by using my skill, and would love to work with people from all over the world.
I have a great knowledge of CAT software (Trados studio, memsource), and basic skills of Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. I am able to translate directly from files such as .indd, .idml, .ai using a CAT and edit the layout for you after translation.
I graduated the audio engineering program at ICOM (Malaysia) in 2015. I play several musical instruments, compose and edit music with Protools. I have a great interest in quite a range of music (oldies pop, punk, progressive rock, krautrock), film, art, culture, travel, etc. Music-related work is very welcome.
Being always punctual, accurate, and flexible is my motto.
Translation experience: Articles (cultural, music-related, etc.), travel articles, website localization, industrial tool catalog (direct translation from InDesign files), publication, etc.
Thanks for reading!
