Statement: A city-trained commercial lawyer with 10+ years' experience in Tokyo, London and Zurich in commercial law, I now translate legal documents from Japanese and German into English. I studied Japanese at Oxford (1996, 2:1) and with a German mother I have been bilingual since childhood. I have been working as a freelance translator since 2008 but translation and interpreting, as well as the analysis and use of materials in these languages, has formed part of my work as a lawyer since 2000. I work with agencies and private clients on legal and academic texts and I have translated books and published articles. I have been teaching on the DPSI (Law) preparation course at London Metropolitan University since 2018.
