General information

Thank you for visiting this site. If you have material that needs 'native checking' and rewriting for correspondence, publication, or public presentation, you've come to the right place. I have thirty-one years' experience of rewriting technical material for major Japanese corporations, freelance translators, doctors, researchers, and translation agencies. All are regular and repeat customers.

My charge per word for rewriting Word files is ¥7. (See my Services and Charges page for more information.) If you are located in Japan, the time difference between the UK and Japan allows me to complete your work overnight. Confidentiality is guaranteed.

Payment can be done by ordinary transfer to my Sumitomo Mitsui Bank account in Osaka.

Even if you don't need my services today, bookmark this site! You can check if I'm free at any time by clicking the Availability tab above.

In 2020 I completed 415 jobs for 15 clients, under the subject headings of Agriculture & Fisheries, Art, Music, Literature, Biological research, Chemistry, Computing, Electronics, Environmental, General administration, Human resources, Legal documents, Manufacturing, Marketing and publicity, Materials and nano research, Mathematics, Medical research, Mental health, Patents, Pharmaceuticals, Photonics, Social sciences and education, and Technical manuals. For subject matters I've covered so far this year, scroll down to see my recent work history.
