Ryoko undertook Japanese translation for a client of ours, a top international hospitality brand. Ryoko proved to be highly professional, responsive to our inquiries and to have supplied a high quality translation. The Maverick translation QC process involves a full linguistic review from a separate Japanese linguist and this review found Ryoko work to have been a good quality interpretation of the English source with a high level of consistency of language and terminology. I would not hesitate to use Ryoko again on one of my projects.

I am neither an expert nor fluent in Japanese to comment on Ryoko’s translating skills. However, the input I received from bilingual friends, and coworkers has been positive. 

Throughout all process of the translation journey, her attention to detail and support was impressive. She was highly professional, and I have only good things to say.

Each time I uploaded the newly translated material, she immediately went to check if I did everything correctly and didn’t hesitate to call me when she found I mistook somewhere. 

Throughout the years, I worked with many translators and if is up to me to choose, I will not hesitate in requesting Ryoko’s assistance once again. That is how much I am pleased and impressed with her work.

Quality >Quantity of Practice

In the video with which I used today to practice my interpretation, Angela talks about time you spend on deliberate practice. She suggests that world-class athletes would spend 4 hours per day at maximum, thus appropriate amount of time for kids to do deliberate practice would be a lot shorter.
