Hi! Thank you very much for browsing here!! Please give me a couple of minutes to introduce myself.
(I moved from Japan to Hong Kong on May, 2012. However, I have been still surrounded by Japanese environments for around 3 to 10 hours every day (e.g. Reading Japanese newspapers, blogs, internet forums; Watching Japanese TV shows, news; Talking to my family members and friends in Japan over the phone in Japanese; and writing Japanese text in translation professionally))
* I don't take any proofreading/editing project.
Bachelor of Arts in Commerce.What I studied there are mainly as follows:
Economics, Commerce, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Finance, Business Administration, Theory of Industrial Organization, Marketing, International Marketing, International Trade, International Finance, Public Administration, Psychology, Politics, Comparative Culture, Japanese literature, English, Business English, Philosophy, etc.

Why you feel compelled to offer projects to me:
If you can read written Japanese even a little, have you ever compared it with the English translation of original Japanese? Or, have you ever noticed some differences between English and Japanese in Japanese writing such as in Japanese books, advertisements, magazines or newspapers?
Japanese language is pretty unique in many ways with the development of its particular culture. For example, we Japanese have to use a variety of subjects in the first person up to situations although "I" is enough in English. Or, sometimes, in a so-called excellent Japanese writing, the subject itself is often not written. In this case, the context in that situation shows the subject. This is just one of the examples in the uniqueness of Japanese.
Even native Japanese do not know about their language structure consciously so much though only some of those who have strong linguistic skills will be able to feel unconsciously.
However, if a writer or translator knows the depth of Japanese writing consciously, he/she has a great advantage with which he/she can make a wonderful impression on those who read his/her writing.
Communication has been increasingly important in business fields, and it has been getting more and more important, especially, in "written communication." A tiny difference will create a HUGE difference leading to a different impression! Are you still satisfied with the rugged translation that is just replaced from one language to another? (In some cases, the translated texts do not even make sense!! This will hurt BRAND IMAGE of companies...) Or would you like to get the polished translation in which invisible flavor is considered? If you are the latter, please feel free to contact me. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
When you send me your project, please let me know about detailed information about it as much as possible such as the number of words, file format, desired deadline of delivery, price, payment term, payment method (Please read “P.S” in the bottom), who you are. So, the probability that I can immediately work on your project will go up.
Considering above-mentioned information, I will basically follow the policy of “First Come (First File), First Served”. Thanks for your understanding in advance.
Thank you very much for visiting here. If you have any question, please feel free to contact me!! And if you would need my full CV, please kindly tell me about it as well.
Once I receive your
projects, I will work on them with genuine dedication and
