Husby, Megan    

Occupation:Translator/Interpreter/Teacher/Consultant

Location:Colorado, United States

Bio:

I have an MA in Japanese Language and Literature from the University of Colorado and JLPT Level 1 certification. I lived in Japan for nearly 14 years during and following my time studying Japanese at the University of Montana, including nearly 10 years in the area of Nagano bordering Yamanashi, at the foot of the Yatsugatake mountain range.

I am particularly interested in the translation of contemplative literature, and have translated poetry and fiction in this vein by the writers Mori Atsushi, Kajima Shozo, and Nagaya Kazuya.

Currently, I teach Japanese language classes at the University of Colorado, Boulder and the Japanese Academy of the Rockies, while continuing to pursue translation work.

Kitaoji, Sara    

Occupation:J/E translator and English-language editor

Location:Tokyo, Japan

Bio:

I am a Japanese–English translator and academic editor, with extensive experience in teaching Japanese and English in Japan and Australia. After completing an undergraduate degree in linguistics at the University of Melbourne, I moved to Tokyo for graduate school (MA in Comparative Culture and PhD in Literary Translation, ICU). I am familiar with a wide range of styles and referencing systems (e.g., Chicago, MLA, APA, Harvard, Vancouver, IEEE, and AGLC), different “Englishes” (US, UK, and Australian), and a variety of genres and academic fields. A linguist by training and a linguaphile by nature, I study many different languages (Mandarin, Russian, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Ancient Greek), and I enjoy working with clients from diverse linguistic, cultural, and academic backgrounds.

日本語版プロフィール:

かつては、フリーランスで、翻訳や英語関係の仕事をしておりましたが、
26年前に、神様に声をかけていただき、不死身になれるように教育をしていただいているうちに、
『自然の法則』様にも声をかけていただき、引き続き、教育を受けて来ました。

地上の人々も、『天国』の人達のように、自分の「気」で作った「自分好みの美しい姿」になり、
自分の「気」で作った世界で、気持ち良く暮らせるようになれるように、
現在、神様達も、『自然の法則』様も、導いてくださっているところです。

SWETの皆さんも、生臭を止めて、毎日、「みんなが最高に幸せになれますように!」と祈ることで、「生臭天罰」で死ぬことなく、『天国』の暮らしができるようになる方向に進んでいただきたいと思っています。

『天国』の人達のように、大空を飛んで暮らせるように、頑張りましょう!

Long, Julianne    

Occupation:Japanese to English translator

Location:Tokyo, Japan

Website:http://www.jjtranslation.com

Bio:

I offer native English audiovisual translation and subtitling with passion, focus, quality, and professionalism.
I deliver native English versions of all kinds of audiovisual and related content that are tailored to my clients’ market and the content itself.
I help clients maximize the value of their content, and avoid the trap of amateur and poor quality translation.
I have a unique combination of media production, business and translation experience and training, which allows me to add value in my translations, as well as in delivery and service standards.
I use SST subtitling software, and deliver on time in a variety of formats to meet my client’s needs.

I was formerly an intellectual property lawyer, but in 2011, decided to use my Japanese language and cultural knowledge, and my longstanding interest in film and documentaries, more directly. I chose subtitling as my focus because it offers a great opportunity to do this.

I relish the challenge of coming up with inventive ways to translate something complex or culturally unfamiliar in a limited space on screen. I aim to distil the essence of the original dialogue in concise and culturally meaningful English that matches the tone of the work.

I completed audiovisual translation training at the Japan Audiovisual Translation Academy in Tokyo. I have been working as a Tokyo-based freelance translator focusing on audiovisual content, with a sideline in legal editing, ever since.

Please see goo.gl/xcriE3 for my profile in English and goo.gl/SGJgn7 in Japanese (日本語のプロフィール).

See http://www.jjtranslation.com/pdf/20140901_Anthology_Essay_E.J.pdf for an article describing how I moved from lawyering to subtitling. It also offers some practical commentary on what it takes to create good subtitles (first published in the Japan Association of Translators’ Translator Perspectives 2014).
