I am very pleased to join in as a new translator! 

I hope my ability to translate Japanese, English and Korean language interchangeably can help someone in need of 'good' translation. 

My goal is to present a deliberated translation which values how culture and context can affect the conveyed meaning of a message. (This is very crucial part of translating texts from a different background) 

Plus, since I've been working in App & Web environment, I reckon I am good at making a message in a limited space. 

Followings are the simplified history of myself! 

1. Family Background

- Born between Korean dad and Japanese mum

- Lived with my Scottish uncle with whom I spent my young days together

- Had to speak in 3 different languages to communicate with my family 

2. Education 

- Lived and Studied in Japan, the UK, and the Netherlands. 

   Studied at Lancaster University, UK

   Studied at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam, NL

- Currently studying Digital Communication at Konkuk University in Korea

3. Experience 

- 4 years of Experience in General and Professional Translation (KOR, ENG, JPN) as a freelance

  KOR > ENG, KOR > JPN Translation and Interpretation at Oui Communication

  KOR > ENG, KOR> JPN University Brochure publishing at Oui Communication

  Chemistry and factory related local Interpretation at Bristol-Myers Squibb, Swords, Ireland

  SNS Advert contents translation KOR>ENG at KICHO Cosmetics 

- Cybercommunication Academic Society Conference works

- Work experience at NAVER, Korea's largest online portal, as UI/UX planner

   Localising BAND App & Web (from Korean to English and Japanese)

   Translating Snow App (from Korean to English and Japanese) 

   Proofreader of all serviced languages in BAND team. 

- Participated in a start-up,, as a translator, administrator, and content creator

-> I basically did almost everything that relates to planning, developing, designing, launching and releasing App to the market. 

4. Others 

- Raising 2-months-old kitten in my profile picture and I love her so much more than anything :) 

- Loves any motor vehicles. I enjoy riding a BMW motorcycle and driving my car with a manual transmission. I believe I have an up-to-expert knowledge of things run on engines.
