    Hello there all!

    I've decided to start a new personal project, and that is Sayaka's fan letter translation project!

    Have you ever wanted to write a fan letter to Sayaka, but then gave up on it because you couldn’t speak Japanese? Or perhaps cause you felt like your Japanese wasn’t good enough?

    Or perhaps you’re just not very good at expressing yourself but need help. Whatever your reason may be, that’s why I’m here!

    The premise is fairly simple. All you have to do is write your fan letter to Sayaka in English, and I’ll help you translate it into Japanese! All for free!

    My Japanese isn’t 100% perfect, but I have studied it for close to 6 years now, and also majored in Translation Studies during my postgraduate studies. I was also responsible in being the project manager of Sayaka’s 22nd Birthday International Fan Project in 2015 entitled 22 & Thankful. For that project, I also was one of the main translators where I translated a good bulk of the messages for fans from English into Japanese.

    Also, since I’m Malaysian, I will also consider messages written in Malay/Indonesian since I understand it anyway. But preferably English!

    If you’re interested, you can find out more on what we did on that project here!

    Unfortunately, I can’t commit to doing another birthday project, but through these fan letter translations, I hope I would be able to connect international fans more to Sayaka! Won’t it be great if Sayaka could start receiving more and more fan letters from international fans??

    I also sent many letters to Sayaka myself since 2013, so if you have any requests or questions on the sort of content I wrote, where I sent it to etc, feel free to ask me here or message me!

    You can also email me at sy.international48@gmail.com

    You could just write a simple fan letter or maybe even send a postcard to Sayaka of the town you live in, and tell Sayaka a little about it! As Sayaka has been working a lot, she hasn’t had that much opportunity to travel to that many countries. And even if she did, it was mostly for work.

    That’s just an idea! But totally be creative and let your ideas run wild! I’ll be waiting to hear from you!

    Wanna try writing Sayaka a fan letter today?
