My name is Ian Davies and I live in Tokyo. I'm a linguist specialising in translation, language learning and web development.
Please use the links below to explore my range of services.
Below you can find out about my various services.
I translate from French, Italian and Spanish, rendering the text in English to convey the message that the original author intended. I've translated over 1.5 million words to date, and I have an MA in translation studies.
I specialise in IT and technical translations, but I also do regular work within the tourism, film and video game industries.
I also offer proofreading, editing, QA and subtitling services.
I teach English and other languages to adults and children in the Tokyo area, with an emphasis on communication and pronunciation.
I'm Cambridge CELTA and CELTYL certified, and I help learners meet their English learning goals in a communicative way, raising students' confidence and equipping them with the tools to express themselves.
I also provide teacher training and corporate skills workshops.
