I am a freelance Japanese to English translator based in Denver, Colorado.
My specializations include fashion, marketing, sports, tourism, and corporate communications.
I have extensive experience with the Japanese language thanks to more than 15 years of study, including several intensive immersion programs, 2+ years spent working and living in Japan, and regular, frequent business trips in the years since I relocated to Colorado.
I majored in Japanese language and literature at university, and have made use of my speaking, reading, and writing skills in some capacity in virtually every work role I have had since graduating. My working experience has been extremely varied, giving me an exceptionally broad range of cultural and linguistic knowledge to draw on. I have worked for the Japanese government both in Japan and in the United States, for a Japanese food supply company, as a project manager for a major localization firm, and as the staff interpreter/translator for a national television network in the US.
I am now working full-time as a freelance translator, and I am very interested in expanding my network of clients. With more than 6 years of freelance experience, I am well equipped to provide the punctuality, accuracy, and creativity required to create the perfect translation.
