Japanese is a fascinating language. Spoken by some 127 million people around the world (126 million of whom speak it natively), it is the world’s ninth most spoken language, according to the this article on the world’s top languages by number of native speakers from Vistawide.
Interestingly, while many Asian languages are tonal, FluentU points out in this article on Japanese language and culture that Japanese is not, which can make it easier for those who’ve grown up speaking Germanic or Latin languages to learn.
Professional Japanese document translation
For those who don’t have the time or inclination to learn Japanese themselves, Tomedes provides professional Japanese translation services. A client recently took advantage of this fact in order to complete an English to Japanese translation of a technical document for her company.
We applied our leading Japanese technical translator to the task. His extensive technical translation experience was the ideal basis for undertaking the work, so he got started immediately.
Accurate technical translation
Undertaking technical translation work of this nature requires serious attention to detail, as the slightest mistake can significantly alter the meaning of the resulting document. That’s why at Tomedes we have rigorous quality assurance processes in place to ensure that our translators bring not just linguistic skills but also relevant experience to the work at hand.
The client provided plenty of information about the background of her company and the project to which the translation related, along with a list of key industry phrases. This helped to set the scene for the translation and to prepare the translator for the job.
The translator worked diligently through the technical document, taking the complex language in his stride and producing an accurate Japanese translation in line with the client’s deadline. She was delighted with the result – an accurate translation, delivered on time and with superb customer service.
Transcription services available
The client was so pleased, in fact, that she has already asked about additional services that Tomedes provides. She was particularly interested in our transcription service, as she has a likely video translation task coming up that will require transcription in addition to the translation work. We’ll be here to help as soon as she’s ready!
