Chapter 1


Hello everybody!

Welcome to Lauren’s Japanese Translations. I’m Lauren, and although I started translating texts from Japanese to English about 2 years ago, I was also studying for my Master’s degree in translation and interpretation studies.

Last month, I received the amazing news that I passed with a distinction, and I thought what better way to celebrate than launching a brand new website to help kick-start my career as a professional translator.

While completing my studies, I also started doing some copywriting work. I’ve now realised that whether it’s translating Japanese texts or creating exciting new content in English, I just love working with languages!

So here we are, and I can’t wait to get started on some new projects. If you would like to work together or have any queries about what it is that I can offer, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!



The above picture was taken in April 2014 when I arrived in Japan for the first time. I was studying at Dokkyo University, Saitama, and on our first day we went for a wander around the area during our lunch break. This tunnel of sakura was a wonderful surprise and a beautiful start to one of the most amazing journeys!
