I am a native English speaker married to a Japanese national. I lived and worked in Japan for 15 years.

I have extensive IT industry and business knowledge from my other career as an IT professional. This real world experience uniquely prepares me to deliver accurate, meaningful Japanese to English translations that reflect the essence of the original language version and that are written with the appropriate wording and terminology for the field.

My translations are backed up with my real-world experience with supporting and deploying technologies such as TCP/IP networking, Exchange/e-mail messaging, web, Cisco routers and switches, software solutions implementation and troubleshooting, data/PBX/telecom, IT project management, and server and system adminstration.

My educational background in Psychology provides me with the knowledge and experience to also provide translations to the social sciences field.
