I worked as an in-house translator for eight years before becoming a freelance, and possess knowledge of the entire localization workflow including text processing and DTP. I'll try to be a "one-stop" option for complicated requests from your customer.

Also, I recently entered the book translation industry (English to Japanese) and translated "Radical Focus" (by Christina Wodtke) (Japanese book name: "OKR").

I commit to satisfy customers, trying my best to convey short to long sources (emails to books), as well as general to professional sources (business readings to research papers).
