Getting Professional Japanese Translations
Japanese is the official spoken language in Japan. It is also spoken sparsely in neighbouring countries and in other parts of the world where you find Japanese people.
For native English speakers and other nationals, Japanese can be one of the most difficult languages to learn.
Professional Japanese translation services consider the innate and inseparable relationship between the Japanese language and the rich Japanese culture of etiquette, respect, and apology. There is a long intertwined relationship between the Japanese language and the people’s ways of life. Quality and accurate Japanese translations must pay attention to these unique characteristics in order to successfully communicate with the target audience.
At MLC, we provide organisations like yours with expert linguistic services, including accurate translations, certified translations, transcreation and localisation services, and several other language solutions so they can scale their businesses overseas. We understand that international trade thrives on quality communication, and in the case of translation services (such as English to Japanese or Japanese to English), you want to work with a translation agency known for high-quality professional translation services.
This is why our team of Japanese translators is made up of Certified Japanese translators, skilled in the cultural nuances of the language and capable of helping you communicate with the local audience in their native language. Japanese writing shares some similarities with the Chinese language. When observed closely, you’ll discover that some Chinese characters are also used in the Japanese language. It takes a qualified and experienced translation company to recognise these differences and render the best translation work for your unique needs.

What You May Not Know About the Japanese Language
Japanese is the official spoken language in Japan. It is also spoken sparsely in neighbouring countries and in other parts of the world where you find the Japanese people.
For native English speakers and other nationals, Japanese can be one of the most difficult languages to learn.
- Japanese shares very few similarities with Korean and uses Latin script, which is typically reserved for imported acronyms and the like.
- Japanese is the official and main language in Japan and is spoken by roughly 127 million people.
- Unlike English, which is closely tied to Romance and Germanic languages, Japanese is not closely related to other major languages
- In Japan, the Japanese language is locally known as ‘Nihongo’. The country itself is called ‘Nippon’ or Nihon’. The outside world calls it Japan.
- The Japanese language uses 4 distinct writing systems: Chinee characters called Kanji, Japanese alphabets Hiragana and Katakana, and Latin writing system, known as Romaji.
- Japanese is the 9th most-spoken language worldwide, but it is the third-largest language on the internet, behind English and Spanish.
English to Japanese Translation Services You Can Trust
Whether you’re translating from English to Japanese or from Japanese to English, MLC offers you not only accurate translations but also the best English to Japanese translation service. We take quality translation seriously, which is why our Japanese translation projects are handled only by professional Japanese translators.
Japanese to English translation projects can be quite tricky because the two languages are different in several ways. Although Japanese shares many syntactic features with English, both languages differ in phonics and writing systems. To ensure you get accurate Japanese translations, you want to work with the most experienced translators.
Another important fact to keep in mind when looking for a professional Japanese translation company is your target audience. The Japanese language is highly steeped in culture. As you might have noticed, the Japanese culture is heavily focused on etiquette, manners, and respect. By and large, a word-to-word translation from English to Japanese might come off as rude or outright informal. This is just one of several ways in which Japanese translations differ from English translations.

Japanese Regions and Sub-dialects
Japanese is spoken almost exclusively in Japan across each of the country’s 4 main islands: Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku, and Okinawa. However, at different points in history, Japanese was also spoken across Taiwan and Korea, as well as in certain parts of Chine and the Philippines
Like other languages, there are other sub-dialects of the Japanese, which are spoken largely in Japanese communities. These dialects are mutually intelligible.
The two most distinct languages are the Tokyo and Kyoto–Osaka dialects. These differ in intonation, vocabulary, and cadence. Ryukyuan, which is spoken by the Ryukyuan people, who are native to the Okinawan archipelago, is considered by many Japanese speakers to be a dialect of Japanese. But the opinion of most linguists is that Ryukyuan is a different language on its own.

Why We Avoid Machine Translation
A professional translator understands the intricacies and unique demands of Japanese translations, especially the differences in the dialects. Depending on the region where your target market is located, using machine translations may defeat the aim of producing localised translations. Using a certified human translator who is skilled in Japanese translations is quite different. The translated documents are better localised for local speakers than when machine translation technology is used.
Machine translation basically involves using artificial intelligence and translation memory to translate the texts. Whether you’re translating from English to Japanese or from Japanese to English, our professional Japanese translators are always ready to provide you with accurate translation services.
