Professional and Accurate
Do you need assistance in communicating with people from different cultures or in different languages? Look no further. If your linguistic needs point you towards Japan, I am at your service. As a conference interpreter and translator native in Japanese and English, it will be my pleasure to make sure nothing is lost in translation.
Born in the U.S. and raised in Japan since infancy, Ms. Browning is a native bilingual in both English and Japanese. She has vast experience in interpreting even prior to making it her career. Since graduating from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (formerly the Monterey Institute) Browning started her own company that provides translation, interpretation and cultural consulting for all matters involving the Japanese language. She is also a contract interpreter with the U.S. Department of State. Actively involved in the American Translators Association she served as the administrator of the Japanese Language Division between 2019-2021. She is also the 2021 recipient of the ATA Rising Star Award.
Browning is very sensitive to cultural intricacies and will do her utmost to provide the exact solution to your need at hand.
She is a KUDO-certified Pro interpreter and has experience working on multiple remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) platforms. Please inquire about the various platform options that best suit your needs. Browning has also presented for the Japan Association of Translators Online PROJECT on RSI during the COVID-19 pandemic and at the Japan Interpreting Forum hosted by the Japan Association of Conference Interpreters.

Conference Interpreter (EN-FR-ESP)
Céline worked as a simultaneous interpreter on an ENG>JAP assignment I helped coordinate. All along the project, she proved to be really professional and very reactive. Her preparation is thorough, and she is willing to go the extra mile to make your event a success. I look forward to future opportunities to work with Céline.
