My name is Eiko, and I'm a Staff Technical Translator for the Japanese group. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in Psychology. I joined National Instruments in July 2010, after working for three years as a translator at Adams Globalization. In my position, I translate various materials, such as software, printed manuals/specs, online help, Customer Education manuals, etc. into Japanese. During my time at NI, I most appreciate having learned about internal and external tools that enable the localization process to be more productive and efficient. One of my desires is to learn more about programming and engineering in general.

I really like working at NI because of the flexible working hours. I can work full time while being available for my family during the day when they need me.

Here are some of the things I do in a typical week:

  • Monday: Localize an Exercise Manual and take screen shots of the user interface
  • Tuesday: Localize course slides
  • Wednesday: Apply CAR fixes
  • Thursday: Prepare files for self-review and technical review
  • Friday: Attend a demo meeting and a weekly team meeting

Here are some of the extracurricular projects I participate in with other NI professionals:

  • Attend Getting Things Done Club meeting
  • Attend birthday party
