Shiho's experience as a linguist started over 15 years ago, when she began her career as a language instructor while studying English (especially American) literature and related subjects at graduate school in Japan and the U.S.

During these years, she has developed a highly proficient command of English and deeper insight into her native language, Japanese, through scholarly research and writing and also through translation coursework and training. While she enjoyed teaching language and literature at universities and in adult education, she also found great satisfaction in being able to successfully launch her career as a freelance translator and editor/proofreader.

Having relocated from Japan to the U.S. at the end of 2012, she has chosen to focus her efforts on "full-time" translation and editing business. She is here to serve her clients with even doubled enthusiasm and with gratitude for this rewarding profession that allows her to continue learning every day.
