For me, translation is a wonderful blend of art and science, relying as much on the heart as it does on the mind. A good translator knows when to be literal and when to adapt the content to fit the language and culture of the target audience. My goal is always to provide a new text that conveys the same ideas as the original, but which can also stand alongside it as an independent document of the same quality or better.
I use proofreaders in order to deliver work that is free of errors and I will make as many revisions as necessary until the client is satisfied. Depending on the nature of the text, I can manage 2,000 - 3,000 words per day. I maintain regular communication with the client regarding the current status of the project and if it consists of multiple documents, I turn in each one as it is finished so that the client benefits from not having to wait until all the work is finished and I benefit from the opportunity to incorporate any feedback into the subsequent documents.

I'm a Japanese native residing in the main land U.S. since last year.
My first degree was a B.A. in English from JapanĀ?s best school in the field. I, then, joined an international financial group and gained experience as an in-house translator/interpreter primarily catering to non-Japanese managers and executives. Following the global financial crisis in 2008, I left the Dutch company to join a Japanese insurance giant which was in preparation for an IPO and needed a bilingual interface with non-Japanese institutional investors. My duties then were centered around legal documentation, statutory disclosures and financial presentations, as well as programs for international trainees.
My other professional translation experiences include machinery, industrial software, and marketing analytics.
