My name is Patrick Mackey, and I am a freelance translator (Japanese to English) and editor located in central Fukuoka City, Japan. I provide translation, editing, proofreading and copywriting services in the following fields:

  • Tourism and hospitality
  • Technical
  • Business and marketing
  • Government-related
  • Historical and cultural, general

Please see the Specializations and Services section for more details, and take a look at the Experience section to see what kind of work I have done in the past.

I endeavor to provide professional, accurate translations to each and every client. The following are the standards I set for myself when taking on a job:

  • Accurate Translation: This not only means getting the meaning right, but making sure the translation is smooth, clear, and suitable for the intended audience (stylistically and otherwise).
  • Quality Writing: Knowledge not only of the source language is only one of the skills a translator needs; the ability to express it elegantly and clearly in the target language is equally important. I aim to provide publication-ready, high-quality text each and every time.
  • Timely Delivery: In today’s busy world, I understand that meeting deadlines and completing work quickly is of the utmost importance. I make every effort to be punctual without compromising quality and accuracy.

Feel free to contact me about rates, services, an estimate, my resume, or any questions or concerns you may have.
