I have always had an interest in both writing, and Japan. This led me to study Japanese at the University of Manchester in the UK, and Waseda University in Japan, graduating in 2016 with distinction in spoken Japanese and Translation.
Since graduating I have worked as a freelance translator, and have also worked in the market research and insurance industries—developing an understanding of the needs of modern organisations and stakeholders. In my work as a “Document Content Specialist,” I have been responsible for the review and improvement of hundreds of documents, ensuring that they are clear and understandable to a global audience. I apply these skills and knowledge to my translations.
Being a translator, I understand the importance of conveying sentiment and meaning, a skill that has served me well in producing impactful and effective copy for a variety of clients.
