Japanese Language Translation Agency


Japanese is a widely spoken language in Japan and elsewhere in the world, and our translation services can help you become an international business no matter where your head office is. We can also help give a professional service for any documents you need to be translated.

Our expert Japanese translators have over five years of experience working in the field of linguistics and can ensure great accuracy for your translated documents. Our translators have experience with any Japanese writing system you need, including Kanji, which uses Chinese characters for Japanese writing. There are over one thousand characters in Japanese, so rather than risking a second-rate service, trust our expert Japanese translators to give you the high-quality results you need.

All our translators are native speakers of the language you want to target. This means that our Japanese speakers will have knowledge of Japanese culture and the nuance of the language, making sure that your translations are well-received by your target audience.

We also have experts in specialist subjects such as law, medicine, and technology. This is essential for complex fields where there are a lot of specialist terminologies and specialist Japanese characters, specific to the field.

Japan is an important and booming economy, so getting Japanese language services can help make sure that you are ready for international business needs.

We also offer certified translation services to make sure that your official documents can be accepted by Japanese government bodies, immigration offices, law offices, and academic admission offices.

We pride ourselves on being a leading translation company. We offer over 150 languages and dialects, meaning that you can get all your translation needs met with us – this saves you a lot of time, compared to finding multiple different translators. Rest assured, this does not at all affect the quality of our Japanese translation services. Even when you get multiple different language translations, all our translation services are handled by native-tongue speakers from our extensive network of professional linguists. Whether you need just Japanese translation services or a wide range of language translation services, you will always get a great quality translation from us.

We always aim to offer a fast turnaround for your Japanese language needs. If you need your Japanese document translation complete urgently, we offer an express Japanese translation option. This can get your documents translated and returned to you within one day, or sometimes even less.

We have a special process for our translation services to make sure that we always give you a highly accurate finished document. First, the project is handled by an expert in the language you are targeting. Then, the finished translation will go to a second linguist who will proof-read it. If there are any errors, these will be caught by our proofreading. After this, the project is handed over to specialists for any additional services you have requested, such as certification, technical help, or form layout – which is useful for official documents such as marriage certificates, making sure that they are in the right format for your needs. Throughout this process, you will be in contact with one of our dedicated project managers who will make sure that you are appraised of the progress of your project. Once it is ready, it will be delivered in your preferred format. The whole process is quick, accurate, and handled by professionals from step one to completion.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why use professional Japanese translators?

If you want high-quality accurate translations, you should always use a professional service. It can be tempting to use a cheaper option, such as asking a friend or family member to translate documents for you, but only a professional Japanese translation expert can ensure fast and accurate translations.

Why not use a machine-based Japanese translation service?

Machine translation has become more popular due to the easy and quick results that are offered by software such as Google Translate. However, machine translation services cannot guarantee the high accuracy that you need for your translated documents. This is because machine translation software can only translate individual words or short phrases following its translation memory, which is the way it has translated phrases in the past. This can often lead to your finished translation being stilted and wrong. This is a huge problem if you are getting documents translated for official uses such as for the foreign and commonwealth office, law offices, or other legal documents. While machine translation services can be quick and cheap, you should always use a processional translator who has the technical expertise to provide the fantastic service and high accuracy that you need for official documents or personal documents.

What specialist translations do you offer?

We offer translation work for a wide range of subjects. As well as website localisation or personal documents, we also have expert linguists with in-depth knowledge of a wide range of specialist subjects. For example, we have medical linguists with the subject matter expertise needed to accurately translate medical reports. We always recommend using experienced translators who have experience in a relevant field when you need translations for technical documents. For example, we suggest using expert translators for legal documents, medical documents, technical paperwork, and other industries where you will find a lot of specialist terminologies.

What are certified translation services?

Certified translations are a special type of translation. In order to get a certified translation, you need to use a professional linguist who can swear that the document translated is a true and accurate representation of the original. Certified translations are often needed for official paperwork, such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, divorce paperwork, legal paperwork, and academic applications. The exact requirements to give a certified translation will vary depending on which government, institute or company you are submitting the translation to. Generally, professional translators who are skilled and have relevant qualifications can offer a certified translation service, but some countries may require a specific qualification.

Do you offer Certified translation services?

Yes, we offer a full range of certified translation services to make sure that you can get your documents translated for whatever international purposes you need. If you are unsure what type of certification your documents require, get in touch and see how we can help. We have expert project managers who can help you get the right certification for your document translation services in Japanese.

How do you ensure high-quality Japanese translation services?

We have a rigorous translation process, designed to make sure that all our translation services are accurate. This includes full proofreading by two highly skilled translators. We also assign you a dedicated project manager to oversee the process. Plus, we only ever use native-speaking translators. We make sure that all your documents are translated accurately into Japanese.

Why use native Japanese speakers for translation services?

We only ever use translators who are native to your target language. This means that for Japanese to English translation services, your translator will be a native English speaker. For English to Japanese translation services, we would assign your translation project to someone who speaks Japanese natively. This helps ensure the linguistic excellence that our customers expect. This is because a native speaker will be able to get the nuance, flow, and complexity of your targeted language right, ensuring that the finished translation flows well and reads well to other native speakers, helping make sure that you get the best result possible.

What other languages do you offer?

We can translate into over 150 different languages and dialects, meaning that you can get the right language for your target audience, wherever in the world they are. We are proud to offer this full service for translation options, meaning that you can rely on us for all your translations, rather than having to find multiple different translation companies.

Can you translate audio and video?

Yes, we also offer full Japanese translation services for audio and video files. We can accept almost any file type, including digital and analogue media. If you are unsure whether or not we can handle your audio or video file type, get in touch for a prompt response. We also offer transcription and subtitling services for audio and video, in Japanese and in any of the other 150 languages we offer.

How is transcription different from translation?

Transcription means taking the spoken words in an audio or video file and turning them into a written document. This is helpful for a range of reasons – you might want a transcription of a business meeting or a focus group meeting to make it easier to refer back to. You can also use transcripts to help people who are hard of hearing understand the content of a video. We also even over time-stamped video subtitles, with translation into any of our 150+ language options, making sure that your video content can be seen and understood by viewers worldwide, whether it is a work training video or an entertainment video. We can offer translation and transcription services together, or offer translation or transcription alone.

How long with my Japanese translation project take?

We always aim to offer an accurate and quick service for all our clients. For an estimate of how long your translation project will take, please get in touch. You’ll always get prompt responses from one of our account managers, so you can have a completion date within one hour. We also offer an express translation service for any urgent translation projects. This can even get your Japanese translation completed and delivered within a day or less.

How much do professional Japanese translations cost?

We aim to always keep our prices competitive with any other translation company. Our prices are based on the word count of your document, or the length of your audio or video file. If you want an accurate and instant quote, get in touch using the form below. You can also contact us via email or over the phone. Once we have a look at your translation request we can offer a quote within one hour. You can also request specialist services such as certification, transcription, interpretation services, and more.
