Japanese Translation Services

There is an estimated 122 million Japanese speakers living in 25 countries around the world. According to the 2000 Census, there are 477,997 Japanese speakers living in the U.S. making Japanese the 13th most common spoken foreign language in the United States. Due to its demand, Japanese translation services have become incredibly important to business commerce. Even though the majority of Japanese speakers live in their native Japan, there are significant Japanese speaking populations living in Brazil as well.

The written Japanese language is greatly different from the Indo-European languages. The primary differences lie within grammar, which is mandatory for Japanese translators to understand. Japanese utilizes a different word order and can even drop an object, which can make trying to use word for word English to Japanese translation unintelligible. When handling Japanese translation, it must be kept in mind that the verb often comes at the end, which can result in longer sentences. Effective Japanese translation services must use caution and be educated on such differences,

The Japanese language is comprised of thousands of Japanese characters known as kanji as well as two syllabaries with 48 characters each. Japanese is likely not related to any other language in the world, with the exception of a Japanese dialect which is known as Ryukyuan. There are some similarities in grammar which are shared with Korean as well as Chinese. This makes it one of the most complex written languages in the world. When handling Japanese translation services, a translator must fully understand the difference between the two forms of Japanese; standard and common as well as the two different writing systems. An educated Japanese translator must know approximately 2,000 Japanese characters.
