Japanese - English Communications Specialist

Australia - Last active: 04/04/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

Through Nippon Communications, I offer bilingual communications and creative support for businesses operating in Japanese and English-speaking transcultural markets. From small businesses that require immediately effective communications solutions to businesses and communications agencies working with large Japanese corporations and industry partners, our services flexibly caters to a range of Australian and English-speaking businesses working in or with Japan. Clients I have worked with include: Toyota Motor Corporation, Dentsu, Denso, Bertelsmann, Academy of Information Technology, University of New South Wales, Rotor Studios, Oddfellows Advertising, Spinnaker Films BACKGROUND Since the age of two, I have lived in four different countries: Japan, The United States, Singapore, and currently hold a permanent residency in Australia (further info in my Linked In profile below). Due to this particular upbringing, I am native in both languages and cultures. When most linguistic professionals are native in one language and strong yet not native in another, this is a unique advantage for clients who require a specialist who is capable of identifying, translating and interpreting the subtlest of nuances in both languages. At Nippon Communications, I combine my bilingual and bicultural expertise with my background as an advertising, marketing and communications specialist (honed at Oddfellows Dentsu). This ensures that every work I produce, or assist in are done so with the end communications objectives in mind. For example, when your translated documents need to make an emotional impact on your clients, speak the language of your particular target audience, or simply needs to resolve a business problem caused by cultural barriers, I apply a multi-tiered approach that best leads to a long-term solution. WHY FREELANCE My work through Nippon Communications is crucial in flexibly supporting an organic fashion social enterprise I co-founded with a dear friend. The social enterprise also aims to be a bridge between Japan, Australia, and various cultures around the world. Please refer to my LinkedIn for more details about my work and/or educational history.

English-Japanese Translator / Writer

Australia - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

< Translation > I am a native Japanese translator who completed 7 months of Japanese teaching training. I have been learning/using English for over 20 years now and have lived in English speaking countries (the US, Cyprus, Australia and New Zealand). My precise knowledge, great attention on the context and tiny details, and expressiveness in writing allow me to convey the messages of the original writer accurately and effectively. Most clients receive a lot of questions and suggestions from me. I contribute not only as a translator but by helping clients provide better services for the audience/customers. My past jobs include translating websites, iOS/Android applications, eBook, product descriptions, emails/letters, which brought satisfactory results to the clients and positive feedbacks to myself. < Writing > I have about a year of experience in newsletter writing and web contents writing, both about music and movies. My writing style is usually simple, witty and not terminological. Having been interacting with so many non-native English speakers with diverse background, I can benefit your projects especially if you have readers worldwide. My creative writings were acclaimed at my solo painting exhibitions as well. (I am an artist.) I have been travelling -- to the US in April 2013, 2.5 months in Cyprus from November 2013, 3 months in Australia and New Zealand respectively -- and the journey continues for a long time. If you are looking for a travel writer, I can provide numbers of stories from unique perspective, too. Thank you for your consideration. I am sincerely looking forward to working with you soon!
