I’m a technical Japanese to English translator and software developer living in rural Okinawa, Japan. I’ve been interested in programming since I was a child. I got interested in languages and translation as a linguist in the US Air Force, then in natural language processing as a university student.
I first started developing Felix over 10 years ago, because I was dissatisfied with existing translation-memory tools. After using it myself for several years, I decided to make it a commercial product about 5 years ago.
I designed Felix to be everything the existing tools weren’t: easy to use, flexible, and with the translator in full control. I’ve tried to keep this as the central philosophy of Felix through the years.
