I am an American living in Japan interested in the intersection of Natural Language Processing (NLP), web development, and the translation industry. Before developing TM-Town I built an online CAT Tool called transdraft which is aimed at making CAT software easy and accessible for freelance translators. I have also developed a wide range of other applications and sites including a language acquisition application, a language chat correction application, as well as an alumni networking application.
Feel free to contact me with any questions about TM-Town, feedback, or feature requests. I enjoy getting to know the community and it helps me to improve TM-Town.
As long as I can remember, I've always been fascinated with language. When I was six, I checked out all of the books from my rural Texas town's library that were targeted at teaching children foreign languages. I confused my parents quite a bit by running around the house calling out things by their names in Spanish, German, and French. My love of language and culture has led me develop a number of language learning tools on the internet, one of which is Fluentli, a Q&A community with audio for language learners. I also made a chatroom for language learners, a tool for helping English teachers correct students' writing, and an online course platform.
I look forward to getting to know the TM-Town community. I want to help you work better and build a stronger translation services business. Reach out any time!
