Professional summary
A full-time freelance Japanese to English translator since December 2005, I lived in Japan for more than 10 years and became very familiar with Japanese culture and tradition. I now live in the United States (my home country) in the Eastern time zone (GMT -5:00) and continue to provide professional, high-quality translation services.
