What you need to consider

In Japanese translations, one of the first things clients need to understand is the target audience’s high stylistic considerations coupled with a rigorous protocol for addressing the audience. Since this expectation of social appropriateness is coupled with a very high appreciation of flawless quality, the demands on the translator, editor, and proofreader are enormous.

As known, many might think that that’s enough complexity for one language, but Japanese goes further. Not because of three different alphabets in writing system and many different dialects and accents. Japanese translations are written using a combination of Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana. Kanji are traditional Chinese characters, which were the first form of written Japanese. Hiragana and Katakana are both alphabets introduced later – Hiragana is used together with Kanji to write regular Japanese words, whereas Katakana is used for foreign and onomatopoeic words.   Different regions – notably Osaka and Tsugaru – have their own accents and dialects. Some with additional words thrown in for good measure. Taken together this means that Japanese document translation can be exceedingly complicated.

This complicated writing system requires many complicated and hard-to-understand layout and typing protocols. That’s why it is essential to have native DTP specialists with enough knowledge to review the final layout before it is delivered to the clients.
