Welcome to Floating World Translations, the Japanese-to-English translation service for high-quality translations from an award-winning translator.

Floating World Translations is the web presence of Steven Smith. I began working full-time as a translator in 2006 after honing my translation skills to a high level through my postgraduate studies in translation.

As a translator, I think of myself first and foremost as a skilled communicator, bridging the gap between languages and cultures. You can be confident that my translations for you will be stylistically spot-on, thoroughly researched for accuracy of terminology, and fully adapted to the needs and expectations of the target audience.
