I am a graduate of Ball State University, and I am looking for any type of translation work to get my foot in the door in the world of translation. I majored in Japanese culture and language studies and focused on learning more about Japanese dialects during the 4 years I studied there. I found a passion and interest for translating Japanese litterature and popcultural media such anime and manga. I'd like to build up a professional background and try for a more permanent job working with a team of fellow translators. I will do anything that involves translating, whether it be 100 words or whether it is 1 million words. No task is too great when you put your head to it, and you focus your nose to the grindstone. I'd be interested in translating any number of things from anime to short online articles.
