< JP/EN bilingual assistant, translator and teacher >
As a bilingual assistant at Reed Exhibition Japan, I worked on promoting international exhibitions (jewellery and pharmaceuticals). My role involved a variety of job duties from creating sales promotions tools to inviting overseas buyers. I also worked with one of the International Sales/Marketing Directors: writing press releases, making barter agreements with media partners, designing EDMs and banners. To create promotional materials, I collected and analysed relevant data to understand the market trends before discussing with my team. I handled all paperwork and provided translating support to the management, such as creating brochures and sales materials for international exhibitions (jewellery, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals).
I’m also a Language Editor for idioma s.r.o., (Czech Republic). I translate, verify and proofread manuals and catalogues (EN > JP) on a freelance basis. I also worked on a Malaysian/Singaporean food book and translated some of the articles on the official Bangka-Belitung Tourism website to attract more Japanese tourists to visit the islands. I currently work as Japanese language teacher at a language school in Tokyo as well.
