    How would one say “I’m taking may talents to…” in Japanese?

    I don’t know if such an expression exists in Japanese. Maybe…

    自分の(能力 or 才能)の____に持って行く。

    One of the more savvy multi-linguists out there might have a better idea than I do.

    A really good site for finding phrases is http://www.alc.co.jp/ . While this particular phrase isn’t there, many popular phrases are.

    As Newman-san says, I don’t think that this expression would be in Japanese. There’s a feeling of denying the listener of one’s services as they are taken elsewhere. Such a negative deeper meaning isn’t part of the Japanese culture that I have experienced. Change the phrase to something more positive, such as “I would like to try my hand at ….”:
