Mari Hiraoka

Competent. Reliable. Flexible.
Mari Unterschrift


Born in Vienna to a Japanese father and Austrian mother and raised and educated in German, I have developed a fine sensor for the particularities of both cultures. I learnt to see things from different perspectives and detect potential causes for misunderstandings at a very young age. In the course of my translation and interpreting studies in the languages German, French and Japanese at universities in Vienna, Brussels and Tokyo, I developed a solid foundation that completes my naturally acquired empathy. My studies also allowed me to pursue my long-standing passion for the French language and culture. As an employee at a UK-based Japanese company, I was able to immerse myself in British and Japanese business conventions before returning to Vienna as a freelance interpreter and translator. I have never regretted this decision and have been happy to assist my customers as a reliable and competent partner ever since.

Achieve success in all of your markets through linguistic precision and cultural empathy.
