Professional objectives
  • Meet new translation company clients
  • Network with other language professionals
  • Get help with terminology and resources
  • Improve my productivity
  • Stay up to date on what is happening in the language industry
  • Help or teach others with what I have learned over the years

I am an American raised in Japan and in the Japanese school system, and I am native in both the English and Japanese languages.
My primary field is translating patent documents for various uses, but mainly for submission to the USPTO and EPO.

I also interpret in meetings dealing with technological issues, and my patent-related clients have found me quite useful in discovery and deposition preparation, dealing with engineers and potential witnesses across the two languages.

I also perform Internet researches for my clients from time to time, to provide them with marketing-related, demographics-related, and trend-related perspectives they might not be able to find otherwise.
