Re: Recording Interpreting Performance in Meetings
Interpreting is an oral intellectual exercise, very different from drafting a written text. There is no known instance of spoken language being completely transferable into acceptable written form. It is therefore recommended that professional minute writers or translators be used to do the editing required.

The organiser or any third party who may wish to record interpretation in the course of a meeting, must therefore apply for permission at the time the very first contacts are made with the interpreters concerned. (c.f. aiic memorandum)
Remuneration for recording permission will be 50% of interpreting fees.

VOICEOVER

As well as working as an interpreter for live TV programmes, further training has allowed me to work on many voiceover projects, such as BBC World News.

If you would like a small sample of work completed to ensure I have the correct voice for your project, check out my voice reels.

I can provide translation of the script from English into Japanese, and adjust the sentences to match the footage/images.

Genre: Documentary, News materials, Corporate presentations, eLearning, IVR (telephone prompts), Audiobooks, Narration…

For receiving source materials and delivering target materials, I am happy to use your designated FTP server.
