Writer & Editor / Translator (JPN to ENG) / Coder
July 2015 — Present
Books in translation are my passion, and I provide Japanese translation services to Japanese publishers looking to submit their books to English language publishers. I prepare reader reports, provide preliminary translations, and translation notes. I worked for a major children's book publisher and studied literature for young readers in college, so I specialize in picture books through middle grade readers.
In addition to those services I also edit texts already translated into English for clarity and voice, design tip-sheets/sell-sheets and other marketing materials, write quality copy for digital or print platforms, design and code mini-sites for books or authors, review contracts, and provide copy editing and proofreading.
