Language Services

As someone whose love for language and the written word is a close rival to that for food, it would be remiss of me not to highlight my language-related competences for you to take advantage of.

I hold a BA in English and Italian Literature from the University of Warwick and this rather niche academic background, coupled with the Japanese skills bestowed upon me by my mother, has enabled me to rack up close to twelve years’ experience as a freelance translator and proofreader.

My background in Marketing pairs nicely with the constant itch I feel to improve every snippet of writing I let loose – copywriting thus presents a delectable challenge for a brain like mine.

As I operate (and eat, pay rent, etc.) in the land not of chocolate and fondue but of extortionate living costs – Switzerland – my rates are suited to the local market. I am, however, open to negotiation. Present me with a fantastic product, pitch, concept or idea that you need help expressing or transforming in any of the following language combinations and I’ll gladly see what I can do.

Translation

JP>EN     EN>JP     IT>EN     DE>EN

Interpreting

JP&EN   IT&EN    IT&JP    (I also offer to and from German, but for less formal contexts)

Proofreading & Copywriting
