1985‑ Translation Experience: +30 years
Freelance, J/G, J/E, E‑G.(G/J)
special fields: medicine, chemistry, engineering;
translation into native language:
medical texts, dissertations, manuals
(engineering, equipment), construction works (Ministry

public relation materials, brochures etc.

among other companies I have been working for:
* The Japan Information Center of Science and
Technology (JICST, government supported organ)
* Mitsui & Co., Ltd.,
* am registered at more than 120 Japanese and numerous foreign translation agencies;
translation of manuals for:
* Victor TV, Sony, Fuji Film, Nikon etc.
manuals and explanatory reports on industrial equipment,
manuals of printers and computer equipment.

I have NEVER been late with ANY of my assignments.
My work, when checked by German engineers working at branch offices of Japanese companies (Nikon, Fuji etc.) in Germany, usually earns a very good reputation.

Rates Japanese agencies have been paying me for over 20 years and
which never increased in spite of the constantly rising costs of living:
(I am therefore today significantly cheaper than 15-20 years ago!)
J - G: ca. 10 Yen (0.087 Euro, 2016/8/1) per source character
J - E: 10 Yen (0.078 Euro, 2016/8/1) per source character
E - G: 18.00 JPY = 0.157648 EUR (2016/8/1) per source word
G - E: 17.00 JPY = 0.148881 EUR (2016/8/1) per source word

Rate based on Japanese characters: ca. 10 Yen per character (J-G)
These rates are often considered not "competitive", but are necessary to survive in this country.
These rates may vary with material, volume and deadline. (When I checked the listings of other translators on various translator sites, it shows, that my rate is actually at the lower end of a rather wide range.)
