Latta, Robert    

Occupation:Professor

Location:Shiga, Japan

Bio:

I have a BA from Duke, an MA from Yale, and a PhD in philosophy from Washington University (St. Louis). I’m about to retire from Bukkyo University in Kyoto, having taught there for 34 years. I plan to do a great deal of writing in the coming decade, none of it for scholars: philosophy (my own arguments and conclusions - I’m no scholar of this or that philosopher), autobiography (my very early childhood, my life in Japan), science fiction (with lots of humor and some philosophy), and so on. I’ve finished two books so far: “The Basic Humor Process,” Mouton de Gruyter, Berlin 1998, and “The Joy of Life / The Sting of Death,” Grammaticus Press 2013 (self-published). For ten years I served as English editor for an English-language scientific journal published in Japan, and I’ll be looking for editing work in the near future. Help is always welcome, and I’ll give what help I can!

Lohman-Oota, Lucinda    

Occupation:Lawyer/Translator/Editor

Location:Hyogo, Japan

Website:http://www.inscribe-consulting.jp

Bio:

I am a legal linguist, editor, educator, and the founder of InScribe Language Consulting.
I have spent two-thirds of my professional career in Japan, where I worked as a foreign attorney in the Tokyo and Osaka offices of Ohebashi LPC & Partners, one of Japan’s premiere law firms for more than 10 years. On the U.S. side, I also worked in the New York offices of two top U.S. firms—Weil Gotshal & Manges and Dewey Leboeuf.

I have also worked in-house with Panasonic Electric Works as their first-ever foreign lawyer, and more recently, at Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma. Through these experiences, I have gained a familiarity with Japanese business practices, corporate communication and decision-making. Lucinda understands that effective oral and written communication is the cornerstone for globalization and competitiveness of Japanese companies.
 
A native of Keene, New Hampshire, Lucinda graduated from Bates College (Lewiston, Maine) in 1980 with a degree in European History and French Literature and from Tulane Law School (New Orleans, Louisiana) in 1991 and subsequently spent 2 years as a Visiting Scholar at Osaka University’s Law Faculty. She is a member of the Japan Association of Translators, the Editors Freelance Association, the Society of Writers, Editors and Translators, the European Legal English Teachers Association, and the California Bar Association (inactive). In her spare time, Lucinda enjoys hiking, meditation, ethnic cooking, and travelling with her husband, Hiro.

Long, Julianne    

Occupation:Japanese to English translator

Location:Tokyo, Japan

Website:http://www.jjtranslation.com

Bio:

I offer native English audiovisual translation and subtitling with passion, focus, quality, and professionalism.
I deliver native English versions of all kinds of audiovisual and related content that are tailored to my clients’ market and the content itself.
I help clients maximize the value of their content, and avoid the trap of amateur and poor quality translation.
I have a unique combination of media production, business and translation experience and training, which allows me to add value in my translations, as well as in delivery and service standards.
I use SST subtitling software, and deliver on time in a variety of formats to meet my client’s needs.

I was formerly an intellectual property lawyer, but in 2011, decided to use my Japanese language and cultural knowledge, and my longstanding interest in film and documentaries, more directly. I chose subtitling as my focus because it offers a great opportunity to do this.

I relish the challenge of coming up with inventive ways to translate something complex or culturally unfamiliar in a limited space on screen. I aim to distil the essence of the original dialogue in concise and culturally meaningful English that matches the tone of the work.

I completed audiovisual translation training at the Japan Audiovisual Translation Academy in Tokyo. I have been working as a Tokyo-based freelance translator focusing on audiovisual content, with a sideline in legal editing, ever since.

Please see http://www.jjtranslation.com/pdf/Profile_E_201512.pdf for my profile.

See http://www.jjtranslation.com/pdf/20140901_Anthology_Essay_E.J.pdf for an article describing how I moved from lawyering to subtitling. It also offers some practical commentary on what it takes to create good subtitles (first published in the Japan Association of Translators’ Translator Perspectives 2014).

Bio:

I have been in Japan for over two years. I live with my wife in Chiba, and I am very content with my life here.

In my free time, I enjoy reading fiction and writing short stories. Some of my writing has been published online, and I am always looking for opportunities to get my work out into the public sphere.

I am also interested in moving my career in a different direction. I get the most pleasure in my current job from proofreading students’ work and editing course material that my native Japanese colleagues have produced in English. This is the type of work I would like to pursue.
