English to Japanese Translation

The Japanese and English languages are two polar opposites. Some of these differences are obvious at first glance. For example, the English language uses the Roman alphabet, whereas Japanese is written using Chinese characters. Spoken English to Japanese translation is equally complex as Japanese is a tonal language. Using the wrong intonation can drastically alter the meaning of your text, even if you’re saying the correct words.

Many more subtle differences introduce additional challenges for English to Japanese translators. There are several levels of formality in Japanese that impacts the language and grammar used in different contexts. You won’t find any plurals or articles (such as “a” or “the”) in Japanese either, which poses problems for English speakers to which these things are the norm.
Therefore, paying for professional English to Japanese translation is essential if you want effective, error-free communications. Indeed, to translate to Japanese typically means it will include five or more steps. In comparison, translating between two Indo-European languages is generally done in two! Fortunately, our team of professional Japanese translators is here to help you connect, engage, and get your message across and intended.

Japanese Translation Tips & Insights

Professional Japanese translation services are hard to source – the unique aspects of the language make it hard for non-natives to translate successfully. Here are some tips from our experts to make your English to Japanese translation (or vice versa) as effective as possible. Trust our experts to receive high-quality Japanese translation for your business.

Never Use Machine Translations

We wouldn’t recommend machine translations in any language, as they are notoriously riddled with mistakes. However, the complexity of Japanese translations means machine translations need to be avoided at all costs. The text will be difficult to read and, in some cases, completely incomprehensible. For any business, this can also have a huge impact on opportunities, growth, and sales. When you translate to Japanese, stick with human Japanese translations for the best results.

Understand Your Audience

There are several Japanese language registers or levels of formality: Sonkei-go (尊敬語), Kenjo-go (謙譲語), and Teinei-go (丁寧語). Making a mistake in translated correspondence can make your content seem rude and ineffective. Therefore, you must carefully define your audience to ensure you’re using the right level of formality for your content to connect. Bear in mind the cultural differences as well – in Japan, business writing is much more formal than in English.
