    Official Japanese translators

    The language of our Japanese translators contains many words that are specific to the culture and are not found in other languages. Politeness is strongly reflected in the way Japanese is spoken and great care must be taken not to offend the audience. The ability to translate Japanese requires not only a strong knowledge of Japanese culture, but also an understanding of the audience as to not be impolite.

    There are several dialects spread across Japan, most of which are mutually intelligible, with the exception of the geographical extremes. Hyoujungo, the official dialect, is overly dominant and used in all official documents, taught in schools, and used in the vast majority of the country. Despite the difficulty of the Japanese language, Japan boasts an impressive 99% literacy rate.

    Japanese translators for technical, medical and legal documents

    Japanese translations of medical, legal, technical and certified documents is one of our core competencies, so we've got extensive experience with the in and outs of the Japanese Language. Here are some of the common issues with English to Japanese document translation that we have learned:

  • Japanese translation typically expands 30% in size from English.
  • Not all applications support Japanese text and great care must be taken when using Japanese in complex layouts.
  • The target audience must be known before translation in order to correctly address politeness and use of Kanji.
  • There is no hyphenation in Japanese, though it is considered incorrect to start a line with certain characters.
  • The majority of Japanese systems use SJIS or JIS text encoding rather than Unicode.
  • Vocabulary can vary according to the gender of the speaker.
  • All syllables carry equal stress when speaking (with few exceptions).
