About my service

-Professional translation (English to Japanese)

Quality translation means much more than translating words from language to another language, it should have a flow and include adaptation to local culture and manners to attract people in the targeted language.

My translation work is to make the most natural translation for Japanese readers and to make it suitable for Japanese culture/society.
I am also happy to be flexible about clients requirements such as a literal translation, a free translation or creative, or the mixture of those.

I generally do translation only from English into Japanese (my native language) in order to keep the professional quality of the work. I don’t do the other way around unless it is the casual and simple one like Email or documents for private or internal use.

-Japanese proofreading
I have proofread various Japanese texts including website articles, blog posts and books. 
For translated texts, I can compare and check it based on the original English one and make sure that translation doesn’t have any error in grammar, use of words, generic writing rules (or specific rules a client provides) as well as that it has proper manner, tone and expression which are suitable for Japanese culture and the purpose depending on topic/business or personal.

-Japanese contents writing
I have a lot of experience in Japanese contents writing for interviews, event reviews, news articles, and blog posts. I can provide creative and informative articles based on legitimate resource.
If you need, I can also help you with research to find resource or information in Japanese.


Deliverable format: Word, Excel, WordPress, PO file
I have been running my websites on WordPress for 3 years, so posting/editing on that platform is comfortable to me.

Based on my background, my expertise field is art history and general fine art topics with comprehensive knowledge of Japanese traditional art and Western classic art history.
I also have plenty of experience on other topics such as culture and lifestyle.

I am always punctual to deadlines and enthusiastic about my jobs. I will provide high-quality work and meet your needs flexibly.
