I am a 30-year-old Spanish national (mother tongue) with native level English and intermediate level Japanese and Russian. I have a real passion for foreign languages and intercultural communication, that is demonstrated by my whole academic, professional and life experience until now.
My current priorities are to gain more experience (I) in a translation or language-related position and (II) to obtain a better understanding of the Japanese language and culture.
I am a highly organized individual who prides himself on paying attention to detail, being flexible when the job requires it, having the ability to work in a team or alone and being able to provide a quick and effective reaction to requests. I have excellent communication skills and clearly recognize the advantages that bridging the gap between different nationalities and cultures brings, helping us to better understand each other. My experience living in four different countries: Spain, Russia, England and Japan, is key to this.
Aside from languages and international communication, another of my areas of expertise is the use of text and image editing software. Throughout my working life I have exhaustively used it in the creation of great variety of teaching materials and slick presentations, as well as in the edition of translated texts.
Although at the moment, the closest stations to my place of residence are 新越谷 and 南越谷, in Saitama, relocation does not pose a problem for me.
