A golf club video script translation by Matt RougeAlthough my main clients are large Japanese companies, not all of the writing I do for them is translation-based. In fact, I do about 20% of the work for my largest client in English without a Japanese source.

Other Japanese companies
Most of the above companies are household names in Japan and the United States, and the smallest of them has over $300 million in sales per year. I have also helped other smaller Japanese companies as well. I am often asked to create website content, video scripts, and print pieces for use in English-speaking markets outside Japan.

Local companies
Based in Indianapolis, I write regularly for companies around Indiana and outside the state as well. These companies include manufacturers and a wide variety of service providers. About 80% of what I do for local companies is website content, the remainder being print ads, brochures, direct mail pieces, and other marketing materials. With my marketing background, I am especially good at reviewing a company’s marketing messages and producing complete content for its website.
