Financial Analyst & Linguist

I took up professional translation after a Japan-focused career in finance and investment in Frankfurt, London, and Tokyo. Writing financial reports and investment analysis based on Japanese source materials was a major part of my job description. Linguistically I am native in German and native-level fluent in English and Japanese.

My field of expertise is business. Having worked in both commercial and investment banking, as a translator I cover the mechanics, documentations, and legal underpinnings of commerce and finance, financial markets and instruments, investment, and the economy. To keep myself current I read Japan's leading financial daily, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun.

My main topical areas are financial and related legal subject matter, with the emphasis on

  • Financial markets – All asset classes and derivatives (equities, fixed income, currencies incl. cryptocurrencies, commodities, etc.)

  • Investment – M&A, due diligence, property

  • Audits & financial disclosures – US-GAAP, J-GAAP, IFRS

  • Agreements, commercial litigation, arbitration

  • Corporate action

  • Legal briefs, patents, intellectual property

and subject matter related to the above.

Translation experience

- Freelance translator: 2002 - present
- In-house translator: 1998 -2001 (Tokyo IR firm, US law firm)

Professional specialization
- Financial and investment analyst at Deutsche Bank and MUFG.

Education, language training
- MA in economics, Leibnitz University Hannover, Germany
- Japanese Studies, Berlin University, Germany
