I translate media content of all sorts but mainly television and web content. Currently, I do English<->Arabic translation but on my spare time I do freelance and crowd-source English-Japanese translation and Indie game localization. I will be taking JLPT N3 this year (2017) and hope to move into Japanese-English translation and localization officially. I tend to do game/media localization because I'd like to bring Japanese culture over to the rest of the world and the best way to accomplish that is through translating their culture in the best way I possibly could.
