Japanese Translation Services: Professional, Machine, Crowdsourcing & Cloud Translation - Confused?

Yes, those are all different kinds of English Japanese translation you choose from!

Translation clients often get confused with the difference between all the kinds of translations solutions available. And, don't worry -- Plenty of translation industry folks are at a loss, too!

Smart folks confront this confusion at the head of a translation project, which is a good thing because it saves them thousands, even tens of thousands, of dollars. Literally.

And, the ones that lose money? A client out of Sri Lanka recently contacted our Japanese translation company in Tokyo for the re-translation of an eCommerce website selling used cars. Their "professional" translation service provider served up a machine translation solution for their Japanese web pages. The cost to the client was threefold:

  • Initial cost of the machine translation solution
  • Lost business (as seen by a drop in sales immediately following implementation of machine translation
  • Cost of re-translation by a professional English-to-Japanese translation company

A truly devastating loss to the client, which was entirely avoidable.

Ironically, the professional translation in English Japanese that we provided cost less than the original machine translation solution! (Incidentally, the machine translation solution implemented was Google Translate.)

Here you'll learn what type of translation is right for your translation requirements, and, as a result, you will avoid losing money. Let’s jump right in.

Essentially, there are only four different kinds of translations:

NOTE: PEMT (post editing machine translation) is not listed as a type of translation because it is essentially machine translation.

A brief description of each translation type will appear in subsequent posts.

Japanese Translation Services Recommended, Without Reservation

Concerned the so-called "Translation Recommendations" are phony?

 Japanese Translation Services Recommend

You may be onto something there!

We're all used to those so-called “recommendations” populated by initials, and maybe a location if even the slightest imagination has been applied. Let’s be honest here – In an age where anyone can look up anyone on the Internet, do these folks posting their genuine recommendations really believe initials cut it?

Naturally, there’s more tricks to the trade. Companies use paid professionals to “wash” the Internet of any negative comments about their services. The process works by continually posting a large number of glowing recommendations and reviews –which are, of course fake- in order to force those genuine negative comments further down search engine results. In essence, they’re burying the genuine negative comments!

After watching this video, you'll never buy into those phony online translation recommendations again. Guaranteed!

Certified Japanese Translation - Getting started

Got a certified translation project? Then you may be wondering How do I start this thing?

Certified Japanese Translation for Legal Applications

Different countries have different requirements for certified translations. And, even when a standardized procedure may be in place for a given country, different official and governmental organizations within that country may have different requirements. Therefore, it’s very important to understand the requirements at the organization level, where you'll be submitting your translated personal & legal documents.

Once you have a handle on the requirements, you can then begin the task of identifying a professional translation service agency that meets those requirements. At the risk of being repetitive, this is your responsibility. Translation service companies will provide you information from the context of their own experience; however, it’s important to bear in mind that translation companies don’t evaluate the (i.e. immigration) application itself as acceptable or not -- They simply do the translation, nothing more!

When you’ve identified the right certified Japanese translation services for your requirements, the agency will provide you with all the information you’ll need to get your documents translated and certified. Here’s a general guide to the process:

  1. Send your documents to the translation company 
  2. The company will review & evaluate the documents, and clarify requirements
  3. Documents are translated
  4. Draft translation is presented to you for review
  5. Translated documents are certified with a Statement of Certification
  6. Translated documents and certificate(s) are delivered

Follow this simple format, and ensure your certified translated documents in Japanese English are accepted wherever and whenever they are submitted!
