Translation provided from Marketing standpoint, Not a Literal Conversion, bringing up the original torn and manner properly:

I am a Japanese translator with unique experience in the production and translation of business and technical documents as well as writing promotional materials for the Japanese market.

I frequently work with translation agencies as an editor or final reviewer to assure that
the deliverables are of sufficient quality to meet the needs of their more demanding clients. As an editor, I’ve noticed that many translations, while meeting technical standards, do not convey the proper style or tone for Japanese business clients. This is a proficiency I developed in my earlier capacity as a marketing project manager at the Japanese affiliate of a U.S. direct marketing company. In addition to leading project team members responsible for keeping tasks on track with the development schedule, I prepared and reviewed business documents including strategy presentations, sales and forecast analysis, advertisement copy, market research reports and quarterly financial reports in both Japanese and English. I therefore understand the importance of delivering Japanese translations that are appropriately composed and styled for the target business audience.

Here is the summary of my carrer.

➢ Ten years experience as an English-Japanese (native language) translator and editor uniquely experienced in the production and translation of business and technical documents
➢ Nine years product marketing and analysis experience in Japan
➢ Broad knowledge of the Japanese consumer products, automotive, and insurance industries provides a strategic view of international business operations
➢ Skilled in the development of business plans and products, project management, market analysis, branding, research and strategy development for the Japanese market
➢ Demonstrated ability to successfully manage projects to develop and launch products according to schedule, meeting milestones, successfully performed as an integral member of business teams in both the U.S. and Japan
