I am an En-Ko/Ko-En linguist with 17 years of experience providing extensive localization-related services in games, IT, automobile, energy, and more. I bring my experience with some of the world's biggest brands to help my clients achieve their fullest potential aligned with both technical and creative agendas.
I am an approved/lead translator for several brands that prefer a more creative and adaptive approach to reaching their markets. No direct translations. Most clients have been with me for over two years, and I sometimes edit and recreate marketing copies for them.
Occasionally, my job extends to quality evaluation and reporting for recruitment, internal quality control, client acquisition, escalation management, and any situations that need both linguistic and cultural contexts for decision-making.
I also help my clients build an optimal localization process and maintain it, train relevant teams and staff, and create reference documents necessary to produce the ideal tone and style matching the brand identity and objectives in the target market--no matter the working languages.
I do not accept jobs promoting religious belief, violence, hate, misinformation
