With our extensive network of translators around the globe, BLEND always has native English to Japanese translators ready to work on your projects – whether they be for personal or business use. 

Speaking of business, Japan may be a small country, but it is also the third-largest economy in the world, making Japan an ideal market for expanding your business.

Japanese Translation Services FAQ

I need an urgent Japanese translation. How fast can you complete my project?

If you need a faster translation service, you can select the “Urgent Delivery” option at checkout or contact customer support to speed things up.

I don’t speak Japanese. How can I ensure the quality of the translation?

All of our Japanese translators have undergone a certification process to ensure they provide accurate translations. If you’d like to ensure an extra layer of quality assurance for your projectwe suggest selecting a payment option that includes editing or proofreading by a second translator.

I need a Japanese translator who is also an expert in a specific field/industry. Can I specify this when ordering my translation?

Of course! We have Japanese translators who are experts in tourism, finance, gaming, marketing, and other areas who can work on your project, and you can specifically request these experts when opening a translation project. 

Are there different types or dialects of Japanese? How will I know which one to translate into?

While there are various sub-dialects and forms of writing, the two main ones are considered to be the Tokyo-type dialect and the Kyoto-Osaka-type dialect, which differ in terms of cadence, intonation and vocabulary. Based on your project, we will assign a translator to work in the proper dialect for your needs.

Does Japanese localization take into account the difference in word length using Japanese characters? What about vertical writing?

Yes, of course. Japanese is made up of characters, many of which can represent entire words, phrases, or ideas using much less space than English words, or other Latin languages. Our experts understand this, and if your localization project involves fitting text into a design – for example, a title or button on a website – they will ensure that everything still looks great. In fact, it’s much easier to do this when translating English to Japanese than to some languages, such as German, where words are often much longer than in English. Though Japanese is traditionally written vertically, in modern times it is often written and read from left to right, so this should not cause any localization issues.
