Chris comes from
a French and English bilingual background. He studied many of the major
European languages in his teens, but decided to challenge himself at university
by studying Japanese at Sheffield University. It was living in Japan, studying
at Yamaguchi University, and the experience gained from working at a number of
Japanese companies in London, which gave him a real understanding of the
language and its application in the business world. His Masters in specialised
translation at Roehampton gave him a deeper insight into the translation
industry and has stood him in good stead since setting out on this career path.

Chris has translated texts in the fields of medicine,
transport and tourism as well as finance. He also has experience in subtitling
documentaries and animated series in both Japanese and French. 

He holds the highest level of the
Japanese Language Proficiency Test (N1) and is an Associate of the ITI. 

In his spare
time Chris is a keen martial artist, snowboarder, calligrapher and trekker.
