Japanese - English Chemical, Environmental and Patent Translations


Japanese-English Translation Services

I am a fully qualified member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (MITI), and offer high quality Japanese - English translations in a number of fields, particularly chemicals, patents, energy and the environment. I have completed substantial amounts of work in the following fields.

  1. Chemical patents

  2. Chemistry

  3. Automotive chemistry (oils, exhaust filters, paints, tyres, batteries etc.)

  4. Food chemistry

  5. Energy and the environment

  6. Cosmetics

  7. Cameras, lenses and optical imaging

  8. Motorcycling/motorcycle engineering

If you are looking for low-budget low-quality translations, I am not the person you need.

I offer a high-quality service at a fair price.

I am based in the Yorkshire Dales in northern England, but have around 70 clients in a number of countries across 3 continents. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any potential project or for details of my rates and availability.


I am equally at home working on a Mac or a PC and am familiar with all Microsoft Office applications, as well as Adobe Acrobat and Photoshop. I use translation memory software (also known as a CAT tool) for almost all my work, and Dragon Dictate as voice recognition software.
