English to Japanese Translation

The vast differences between the Japanese and English languages can make translating between the two a challenge. Whereas the process of translating between two Indo-European languages usually involves just two steps (semantic analysis and syntactic transformation), breaking down the various nuances and translating between English and Japanese can involve five or more steps; making the whole process far more complex and time-consuming.

Only highly skilled and experienced translators can be trusted with the task of ensuring your content is as accurate and impactful as possible. While traditional English to Japanese translation services calculate their fees by page or per hour, Gengo has a simple and easy to calculate per word pricing system. This way, our customers can be sure of the price they will pay before any work has even begun.

Japanese Translation Tips

Know your audience

It’s extremely important to define your target audience in Japan. Unlike English, the Japanese language has many levels of politeness, each with their own subtle differences. A key feature of this is honorifics, which are in practice different titles used to show varying degrees of respect. It’s important to note that English business writing tends to be much less formal than Japanese business writing. Accordingly, a simple word-for-word translation from English to Japanese may at best be ineffective and at worst be read as rude. Gengo’s native Japanese translators possess an intimate knowledge of both the Japanese language and Japanese culture, making them well-placed to ensure your content is both appropriate and effective.

Avoid machine translation

No machine translator can as yet produce native-sounding Japanese. More often than not, machine translation from English to Japanese or Japanese to English is clunky, unnatural and in extreme cases, incomprehensible. While machine translation can be useful for translating single words or basic text, it’s far from business-ready.

Japanese Language Facts

Japanese is part of the Japonic language family. Although Japanese has no genetic relationship to Chinese, Chinese characters, or Kanji, make up one of the three alphabets used in written Japanese, along with Katakana and Hiragana. Despite close geographic proximity, the Japanese language shares very little with Korean and makes only limited use of Latin script, which is typically reserved for imported acronyms and the like.

  • Japanese is the official and main language of Japan and spoken by roughly 127 million people.
  • Unlike English, which is closely tied to Romance and Germanic languages, Japanese is not closely related to any other major language.
  • The Japanese written language is considered one of the world’s most difficult to learn, with 4 distinct systems of writing: Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana and Romaji.
  • Japanese is the 9th most-spoken language worldwide, but it’s the third-largest language on the Internet, behind English and Spanish.

Japanese regions and sub-dialects

Japanese is spoken almost exclusively in Japanacross each of the country’s four main islands: Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku and Okinawa. At different points in history, however, the Japanese language has also been spoken across Taiwan and Korea, as well as in certain parts of China and the Philippines. Within Japanese there are many different sub-dialects which are largely mutually intelligible.

The two most distinct of these are the Tokyo-type dialect and the Kyoto-Osaka-type dialect, which differ in terms of cadence, intonation and vocabulary. Although many Japanese speakers consider Ryukyuan, the native language of the Okinawan archipelago, to be a dialect of Japanese, most linguists consider it to constitute a language unto itself. Japanese is also spoken in emigrant communities worldwide. The largest Japanese emigrant communities exist in Brazil, the United States (especially in Hawaii, where around 12 percent of the population are Japanese speakers), the Philippines, China and Canada.

Japanese Localization Tips

Localizing websites using hreflang meta tags

When localizing a website into Japanese, it’s important to ensure that search engines are able to understand exactly what language (or languages) your content is available in. In addition to the language attribute on the <html>tag, each page should also include a<head>section in which links to its localized equivalent are listed. If the primary language of your website is English, for example, and you want to translate it into Japanese, then every translated page should include the following block of code in the<head>section:

<link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="en" /><link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="ja" />

Keep in mind that this block should be added to both the original and the localized versions of your page (in this case: & By doing this, each page points to every available localized version of itself, making it easy for search engines to understand the structure of your site and display the appropriate translation for every user.

Targeting a language and a country

In addition to specifying the language that your content is written in, you can also specify particular countries that you would like to target. This is ideal for a language that is spoken in multiple countries, such as Japanese (spoken in Japan, as well as in expatriate communities in Brazil and the US, among others). To do this, the country to be targeted is simply included in the hreflang attribute, like so:

<link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="ja" /><link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="ja-br" /><link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="ja-us" />
