Welcome to Kwintessential – providers of first-rate Japanese translations.
Here are some FAQ’s relating to Japanese translation and Japanese translators:
What does a Japanese translator do?
A Japanese translator will simply turn the written text of one language (such as English) into Japanese or vice versa. A translator and interpreter are two different people. An interpreter only deals with the translation of spoken language such as at meetings or conferences.
A translator does not deal with anything spoken – they only deal with text such as brochures, letters, handbooks, websites, etc.
How does a Japanese translator become one?
First of all a person must have an excellent grasp of at least two languages such as Japanese and English. This will then need tested academically by gaining a formal qualification in translation. Once a translator is qualified they can then gain some experience by undertaking translation work.
Our team of Japanese translators have been selected according to strict quality control policies. All our Japanese translators are qualified and must have at least two years experience of translating.
Each Japanese translator also has a particular skill we use them for. For example, some Japanese translators may have particular knowledge of a subject area (legal, medical, technological, scientific), some may understand a particular country/culture/region, or some may have honed their skills in a particular direction (translation, copywriting or proofreading).
What can you translate?
The simply answer is that if it is written we can translate it. We work from hard copies, faxes, letters, emails, PDF files, websites, etc.
As to subject matter we can take care of anything from A-Z whether general or technical.
How long does a Japanese translation take?
The turnaround time for Japanese translations depends on a variety of factors including the workload our Japanese translation team has, the length your document, your preferred deadline and the complexity of the translation. We will always confirm lead times before proceeding with a translation.
