Japanese Technical Translation, A Real World Scenario

Native speakers and readers of Japanese have spent years learning the three character systems and mastering the different degrees of formality required to politely and successfully conduct business in Japan. In your typical piece of English correspondence, you’ll find a number of idioms and phrases that are integral to a particular industry, or to business-speak in general – for example, the phrase “for all intents and purposes,” or the use of “regards” as a closing. These phrases usually don’t translate directly to foreign languages.

Japanese has these phrases, too. For example, a typical closing statement in a Japanese letter is “yoroshiku onegai shimasu,” a phrase which would have little meaning when translated word for word into English.

To give your documents the proper degree of Japanese formality, and to communicate your message across languages and cultures, you need a true language professional on your side.
