Japanese Technical Translation for the Global Engineering Sector

April 18, 2024

The engineering sector has become ever increasingly in high demand over the years. Because of this, global engineering firms that conduct international trade and conduct research and training have heavily relied on companies specializing in technical translations.

In this project, we demonstrate our almost two decades of experience in providing Japanese technical translation solutions for global engineering firms needing to translate technical documents for the Japanese market.

Our Client

Our client is a renowned multinational engineering firm that has been expanding into the Japanese market. They are rigorous in their standards and innovative engineering solutions. Because of this, they require translations that align perfectly with the technical and regulatory nuances of Japan's engineering sector and legal system.

Unlike other clients, they have established a close tie with Tomedes and understand the flow of how their projects will be managed. With half a decade of partnership, they know they can trust us in ensuring that the engineering translations from English to Japanese accurate, ensuring it upholds the integrity and precision necessary for market compliance and operational success.

The Project

The project will handle technical translations from English to Japanese for engineering documents, such as patent applications, safety documentation, operating and user manuals, AD drawings, and comprehensive technical specifications. They need the documents within 48 -72 hours so they can evaluate them and proceed with their application and comply with Japan's regulations and local laws to get started with their project and business operations.


Each document is essential for the seamless operation and local integration of our client's engineering solutions in Japan, making the accuracy of these translations crucial for the project's overall success.

Why Japanese Technical Translations are Essential in Engineering

Japanese technical translations play a pivotal role in the engineering sector, particularly for projects that span across diverse linguistic and cultural landscapes like those in Japan. The engineering field, characterized by its precision, compliance needs, and reliance on highly specific technical data, demands exactness in communication to ensure project accuracy and safety.

When dealing with complex projects such as infrastructure development, electronics manufacturing, or automotive engineering, the specific terminologies and standards must be flawlessly translated to maintain the integrity of the technical content.

For instance, Japan has stringent engineering standards that vary significantly from those in the West. Translations that misinterpret these standards can lead to serious operational failures and legal repercussions. Therefore, precise translations are not just a matter of linguistic accuracy but are critical for legal and functional compliance in a highly regulated environment.

Project Challenges

Tomedes is no stranger to encountering challenges when it comes to handling translation projects involving technical documents. Besides tight deadlines and overcoming linguistic barriers, some challenges persist throughout the project. So, we will delve into the three main challenges, as follows:

Precision in Terminology: Translating complex engineering terms and data requires a translator who is not only fluent in Japanese but also has a profound understanding of the engineering field. Any discrepancy in terminology can lead to significant setbacks in project implementation and compliance.

Adherence to Regulatory Standards: Japan's technical standards and regulations are continuously evolving. Staying updated and ensuring that all translations reflect these changes is essential for maintaining legal and operational compliance.

Synchronization with Project Timelines: The timing of translations is critical. Delays in translating essential documents can derail project schedules and lead to costly interruptions. Ensuring that the Japanese technical translations are both timely and accurate requires meticulous coordination and planning.
