Bio
I am a native English (UK), Japanese to English translator professionally translating Japanese since 2003, whilst employed by Kyoto Prefectural Government as an educational advisor. I have worked in a number of roles in Japanese organisations, both government and private sector from 2000, acquiring not just excellence in linguistic ability, but a breadth of technical experience in a number of fields:

Specialist Fields

• Health & Medicine: Clinical trials, medical equipment, patient records and research papers
• Business & Legal: Contracts, business reports, patents, press releases, financial reports
• Engineering & Scientific: Product manuals, sales materials, research
• Arts & Cultural: Travel guides, museum & exhibition guides, culinary
• Sales & Marketing: Localisation of campaign materials, copywriting, and PR

In addition to first-class Japanese to English translation using terminology that is accurate and consistent, I guarantee that all my work follows the formatting of the original where applicable.

For the past 5 years I have worked mainly in J-E patent translation, and have compiled comprehensive glossaries of technical terms to facilitate delivery of the highest quality work at competitive rates.

As an English Literature graduate and native English speaker, clients can expect the highest quality writing, and proofreading. I am also available for translations that require a stylistic quality:

• Literary translations
• Sales and marketing materials
• Website localisation

RECENT CLIENTS:

• Japanese Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry
• Mizuho Bank
• Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.
• Citizen Machinery Co., Ltd.
• Daiseki Group
• Japan Rugby Football Union

Having lived in Japan for over 5 years I have an excellent knowledge of idiomatic Japanese, and having also lived and studied in the United States, I am perfectly comfortable writing in US English if required.

Excellent references available on request.
