Professional practices Steven Smith endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I provide highly readable, meticulously researched translations, primarily in the fields of patents, life sciences, medical devices and clinical trials.

My wide range of interests and high intelligence combine with excellent research skills to enable me to quickly understand the essence and details of a subject and to absorb the appropriate phraseology and terminology.

In 2007 I won first prize in the 3rd annual JAT (Japan Association of Translators) contest, and first prize in the 1st annual J-Net translation contest (new translators category).

I am also a classically trained guitarist with a broad knowledge of classical music.
