Stacy Stiles

Light Novel Editor, J-E Translator, and LQA


Hi! I’m Stacy and I’m a freelance Japanese to English Translator, Editor, LQA. I’ve been studying the Japanese language and Japanese literature since early 2015. I fell in love with the language while in the middle of earning my English and Creative Writing degree at George Mason University, and I haven’t looked back since.I took my first professional job in early 2019 translating and typesetting manga for Amimaru. At the moment, I'm serving as a Light Novel Editor for J-Novel Club and Cross Infinite World, an LQA for AllCorrect Games, and a Manga Proofreader/LQA and J-E Translator for Manga Planet.As of May 2023, I am accepting additional freelance work! I’m particularly interested in picking up J-E translation work, specifically in the manga space, but games, light novels, and visual novel projects are welcome as well!

My Translation Portfolio is available upon request.
