Japanese Translation Services

Professional translations from eNGLISH to Japanese

Japanese is one of the most required languages in the language services market, and YBD Translations offers a wide variety of Japanese translation services. Something Japan has always fascinates foreigners. Probably one of the causes is that it is very different from Western culture. The uniqueness of the country is appreciated in food, art, culture and … language. Japanese has nothing to do with Indo-European languages. The differences are evident in the grammatical structure, in the vocabulary and in the writing system.

If you are thinking of visiting or doing business in Japan, we are here to help you overcome the language barrier. We provide translation and interpretation services from Chinese, English to Japanese and from Japanese to Chinese and English (among other combinations).

Basics of japanese language

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, a Japanese 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.

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,
