Service Description

Kita Translations began 8 years ago with Naoko Kita in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan. Her experience includes an extensive range of children's books, as well as various articles for ExxonMobil. An intimate group still, we continue to focus on a variety of projects in editing and translating both Japanese and English.

Currently, she's joined by Carrie Carter who specializes in translation with Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, and English. She also brings extensive grammatical editing experience.

For Chinese translation projects we work collaboratively with Sammi Zhang. Sammi is a native Mandarin speaker and a highly seasoned translator and teacher of Chinese as a Second language.
