Audrey and I have lived and worked in Kyoto as freelanceinterpreters/translators since 2002.
My mother is Japanese (Gunma) and my father is British, but I mostly translate into US English. I was raised in the UK but educated here (Kansai Gaidai) as well as spending most of my working life in Japan.
We’ve been involved in J to E translation since 1998 and as a full time freelancer since 2002.
We’ve covered quite a few genres in 20 years of translation, from video game localization:
StarFox Command (DS)
…to sake museums:
…and 5-star hotels:
And we also interpret on location as local producers for US and UK TV
crews when they come and shoot in Japan:
