Medical Translator
& Health Advisor

Hi, my name is Chihiro Hori and I am a freelance medical translator & health advisor! From my experience living overseas, it can be very tough, confusing and lonely when you don’t fully understand the local language and culture. I was lucky to meet helpful people around me and now it is my chance to give hand to those who need my help. As a qualified nutritionist with a background of nursing, I have combined my interest in linguistics and the medical fields to offer support in an area that is often missing in society…


If you are either looking for ENG-JAP translator/interpreter services, or are searching answers for your physical and/or mental conditions without going to doctors and taking medicines, you have come to the right place.

‘TIME’ is something we cannot buy from anyone nor anywhere and is something we value a lot. There is so much freedom in life when we choose to live so.

About Me

Meet Chihiro,

Translator & Professional Health Coach


I have always been a big eater without many foods that I disliked. Having interests in food and health led me to pursue my tertiary study in nutrition and medical fields at University. After completing my second degree, I realised my potential in the translation field. While keeping my passion for health & nutrition, I made the transition to a more linguistic focused approach and became a medical translator/interpreter.

Since I first left Japan not knowing any English to coming back to Japan after 15 years, my knowledge not only about language, but also about culture has broadened widely. This helps me to deliver translations in Japanese as well as in English with a background of cultural understanding.

How I eat healthy myself?

My number one rule is to eat how local people eat in the area! When I am in Japan, I try to buy a variety of vegetables grown as local as possible. This rule of course applies when I travel to other countries. This way, I can get the most fresh food while supporting the local farmers and eating less processed food.
