Translation - Japanese to English
I am a native English speaker with experience of working and studying in Japan, and I have special expertise in the following fields.
Please note, I will not touch any publications involving intrusive animal
experiments. If you
want to know why, please click here.
I charge by the hour, rather than by the page. The reason
for this is that those who are
writing easily translatable clear English or clear Japanese will get a better deal. I suggest
that you send a sample of the material you want translated to get a quote. As a general idea,
a double spaced A4 English page takes from 1 to 5 hours, depending on its complexity.
English or Japanese language files can be sent in MS Word format.
The charges below are our top rates. We can negotiate cheaper
rates for NGOs or people
on low incomes. Rates are correct as of February 2003. All rates are subject to exchange
