English to Japanese Translation

There is vast difference between Japanese and English considering that Japanese does not have words but characters. Translating from English to Japanese or Japanese to English can therefore be very challenging task. Breaking down the various nuances and translating between English and Japanese is more detailed and complex process. Only highly experienced native translators can be trusted with the task of ensuring best quality translations.

At Vespucci Languages, we have a simple per word or per character pricing system for our clients for Japanese language. Also, our pool of professional linguists are experienced in localization.

Japanese language facts


Japanese is part of the Japonic language family. Along with Katakana and Hiragana, Chinese characters, or Kanji, make up one of the three alphabets used in written Japanese. ​

  • Japanese is the official language of Japan and is spoken by roughly 129 million people.

  • With 4 distinct systems of writing: Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana and Romaji, the Japanese written language is considered one of the world’s most difficult to learn.

  • Japanese is the 9th most-spoken language worldwide, however it is the third-largest language on the Internet, behind English and Spanish.


Japanese regions and sub-dialects

Japanese is spoken mostly in Japan only, across each of the country’s four main islands: Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku and Okinawa.


However, within Japanese there are many different sub-dialects. The two most distinct of these are the Tokyo-type dialect and the Kyoto-Osaka-type dialect. They differ in terms of cadence, intonation and vocabulary. Many Japanese speakers consider Ryukyuan (the native language of the Okinawan archipelago) to be a dialect of Japanese, however most linguists consider it to constitute a language unto itself.

English to Japanese Translation Tips

Know your audience

It’s extremely important to know your target audience in Japan for translation. Unlike English, the Japanese language has many levels of politeness, each with their own subtle differences.


It’s important to note that Japanese business writing is much more formal than English business writing. Accordingly, a simple word-to-word translation from English to Japanese may be translated as rude. Our 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.
