Professional objectives
  • Meet new translation company clients
  • Meet new end/direct clients
  • Screen new clients (risk management)
  • Get help with terminology and resources
  • Learn more about translation / improve my skills

My varied business experience as a technical translator and in business since 2002 has provided me with a real-world understanding of numerous translation fields including computers/IT/network storage systems and devices, multimedia systems, telecommunications, general electronics, optics, and semiconductors, together with an appreciation of varied customer translation needs and foibles.

I graduated in 1995 from Durham University with a First Class BA Hons in German, French and Spanish with a translation and language focus, including modules in German advertising & Business French.

As a technical manual/patent translation checker/editor for RWS Group in 1995-1999, one of the largest players in the translation industry, I developed expertise in pro-level technical translation from Japanese, French and German into English in numerous fields as listed above and honed my editing/ translation skills.

I moved to Japan in 1999 and began working in Tokyo as a full-time translator of mainly Japanese patents in 2002. Since 2002, I have translated hundreds of thousands of words every year from Japanese and have developed a keen eye for accuracy, adding to my skills through ongoing education (Advanced Technical Japanese translation certificate from University of Wisconsin-Madison, a telecommunications certificate, and currently a machine learning course).

I also really enjoy translating marketing, business and general texts from French into English in addition to technical translation using the same language pair. 

I am accurate, easily contactable, and always punctual in my deliveries, and look forward to discussing your needs with you.
