Lauren has been a professional translator of Japanese documents since 1988. She spent the first 12 years as a full-time freelance translator, and the next 8 years part-time while she worked as a project manager in the software industry. She returned to full-time freelance translation work in 2008.

Lauren has extensive experience translating patents and patent-related documents, scientific journal articles and technical specifications.

After living in Japan for 1.5 years, Lauren continued her study of Japanese at the Harvard Extension School. In 1988 she was the recipient of a grant from the National Science Foundation to participate in a full-time 8-week course taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology titled "Technical Japanese for Scientists and Engineers." The class focused primarily on reading and translation of technical and scientific documents.

Lauren holds a bachelor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
