Need help with Japanese translation or interpreting assignments? Or other language tips? I've got over 25 years of industry experience to share.

Methodology

I'm self-taught in Japanese so I bring a real-world understanding of the language, as opposed to exercises from a textbook. With a wealth of experience in translation and interpreting, I can help you complete high-level assignments in either language while improving your written and spoken comprehension skills.

Background

I've been a freelance translator and interpreter for over 25 years. Translating Japanese into English is particularly challenging, because you need to be a master of the English language too. Luckily I'm also an English teacher, which gives me a unique insight into the grammatical nuances of both languages.
