Background

I became a full-time freelance translator after gaining ten years of experience as a Japanese Studies research and communication expert. My Ph.D., a digital humanities project on the cultural economy of media in Japan, led me to specialize in academic and technical/IT translations. I combine a wealth of expert knowledge on media, technology, and society with great practical skills in research and communication.
