Translation Mavens is an online resource created by Japanese-to-English translator Sarah Bull. It is primarily for Japanese-to-English and English-to-Japanese translators and aspiring translators who strive to be the best they can be, and who are generous with their own wisdom and experience. I created this resource for people (like me) who really enjoy and get a lot out of connecting with other translators, but who, for whatever reason, may not be able to participate in a lot of in-person translator gatherings.
I’ll be sharing content relevant to the Japanese/English translation community as well as interviews with a diverse range of translators and people in the translation industry. If you have someone you would like me to interview or particular questions you’d like me to ask please drop me a line using the message function on this page.
Whatever your situation, if you’d like to connect with other translators online in a friendly, welcoming, and curated community, Translation Mavens might be what you’re looking for. Please follow the Facebook page here. If you do join the community on Facebook, please also feel free to start discussions and ask questions or share resources here, as long as they are relevant to translation. Discussion is highly encouraged, but nastiness will not be tolerated. I want this community to be a safe, friendly space where people can post without worrying that they will be shot down or trolled.
If you don't want to join the community but you want to make sure you hear about interviews, etc. as they are released, be sure to sign up for the mailing list here.
