My name is Natsuko Laity from Vancouver, BC. I was born and raised in Niigata, Japan and speak Japanese as my first language. I moved to Vancouver after graduating high school in 2002, therefore I'm fluent in English as well. I enjoy having freelance work as a Japanese translator and a voice-over actor because being able to speak Japanese is a big part of my identity and it's my joy to contribute my knowledge, experience and skill set. My specialty is story-telling as well as marketing materials. I have experience with children's bedtime stories (Aesop Fables), podcast type materials for common Japanese phrases for travelers/international students and marketing materials for introducing companies and recruiting new employees etc. 日本語は母国語なので、読み書きもできますし、なまりのない標準語を話します。I have my own professional recording equipment (microphone, recording and sound editing software). I look forward to hearing from you.
