Samuel R. Messner
Freelance Japanese translator
A passionate, meticulous, and communicative translator of video games and manga. I primarily work with Japanese to English translation, and have experience with and accept Japanese to Swedish projects as well.
My past clients include Seven Seas Entertainment, YKS Services (for Kodansha and Mangamo), Azuki, and Playism.
I pride myself on a strong grasp of functional equivalence, voices both literary and colloquial, and creative writing. My many years of experience as a software developer also gives me unique insight into the technical limitations of a localization.
Is your company in need of a translator who will give you a result that’s accurate, natural, and easy to work with for editors, letterers, and programmers? Contact me at:
