Background

I translate patent applications and publications related to image recognition and pattern recognition algorithms, networking, network application sharing, bio-medical sensing and optical waveguide technologies. I have been translating professionally since 2010, using my training in Computer Science and my work experience in patent prosecution in the United States, Europe (EPC countries), Japan, China and with WIPO (PCT). I am also a member of the American Translators Association and served as the Administrator for the Japanese Language Division from 2015 to 2017.
