Memories of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Messages from the Hibakusha

In 2011, I worked as a volunteer translator, editor, and proofreader on the Asahi Shimbun’s project to produce a collection of translated testimony from the Hibakusha, the survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Miyagi Jonet

I have been assisting with the translation of Miyagi Jonet, the website of a non-profit organisation working in Miyagi prefecture in Tohuku, the area which was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami on March 11th, 2011. Miyagi Jonet aims to help women in the affected areas to connect with people in Japan and also around the world, and to that end English translations of the blog entries are being produced.
