My name is Shannon Morales, and I am the sole operator and service provider at The Perfect Word Translations.

I spent nearly 9 years in Japan and 2 years in Peru, and I’ve used both the Japanese and Spanish languages daily for decades. I have a bachelor’s degree in Communications & Political Science, as well as two master’s degrees in international politics, one earned in the US and one in Japan. Before becoming a full-time freelance translator and editor, I worked in TV, radio, and print journalism, where I honed my research and communication skills. My Peruvian husband and I currently reside in a suburb of Dallas, Texas, USA.


Shannon’s never once missed a deadline, and she
researches things through and through.
I feel I can always depend on her to do a good job.
