Translation agency for Japanese FAQ Important questions - and all the answers
The price for every translation depends on a number of factors, including the combination of source and target language, the translation method and in some cases the specialist area. Ultimately, the length of the text, the add-on services required and the deadline (for translations with an express option) also play a part in the overall cost.
More information about our prices
The delivery time for a Japanese translation – and generally for any translation – depends above all on the length of the text. As soon as we know the volume of your order, we send you a quotation with a guaranteed delivery date.
Fundamentally, our procedures are set up and our processes optimized so that we can turn any translation around rapidly. We often deliver smaller translation projects within 1-2 working days. If you are in a particular hurry with a translation, you can shorten the delivery time with our Express or Super Express options. We then give your order a high priority and deliver it even faster.
A certified translation is usually required to submit to (foreign) offices or authorities. Such documents are often contracts, certificates, or testimonials. We would advise you to ask at the outset whether you have to submit a certified translation or not.
By the way, you can also get certified translations of documents easily and quickly from Beglaubigung24. Simply upload the document – and you’re done!
A translation memory is a kind of “hard drive” and is particularly useful if you need regular translations. All your translations are saved in a database and translated paragraphs and sections of text are reused for future translation jobs. This improves the quality and consistency of your texts, and you save time and money.
You can ask about and place orders for more complex projects simply by phone or email.

Facts to go
Widely spoken & economically important – this is what you should know about Japanese.
Japanese is the official language of Japan: around 126 million people speak it as their first language. There are also Japanese communities and regions in which Japanese is spoken in all parts of the world. Brazil, Australia, Argentina and the Philippines are just a few of the countries in this category. Japanese is also widely spoken in the USA, particularly in California, New York and Hawaii.
Because of the economic significance of Japan, Japanese is an important language for many international companies. The technology sector and the automotive industry are among the biggest branches of the country’s economy, with brands such as Sony, Toshiba, Toyota and Honda enjoying a worldwide reputation. The Japanese value quality and reliability very highly in almost all aspects of their work. Of course, that also applies to translations in the vehicle industry and to technology and IT translations. The more authentic a Japanese translation is and the higher its quality, the more successful it is.
Please be polite – being nice pays off in Japanese
In Japanese, politeness and respect are an important part of the culture. Friendly and positive language is perceived as the respectable and acceptable form of communication. There are various forms of politeness that are used depending on the situation and the relationship between those who are interacting. An easy way of being polite is to use expressions such as arigatou gozaimasu (thank you very much) and sumimasen (sorry). In business emails and official documents, formal expressions and titles are often used, such as shitsurei shimasu (excuse me).
When translating into Japanese – particularly in the business context – these polite formulations should always be used. The correct form of address conveys respect, builds a positive relationship and encourages communication. Ticking those boxes in a translation can provide a crucial advantage for a company. If you have to have documents translated or need a Japanese version of a contract, you should ensure that linguistic adaptation is part of the translation.
The context is always crucial – which makes Japanese specialist translations complex
The Japanese language is known for its complexity and variety, especially when it comes to specialist translations. One reason for this is that Japanese is an extremely context-dependent language. There are many words that have different meanings depending on the context in which they are used. A very good example of this is the word “tsuku”. Depending on the context, it can mean to connect (e.g. plugging in a device), to arrive (e.g. at a station), to park (e.g. a car), to meet (e.g. for a date), to look after (e.g. children) or to stick (e.g. a label on a bottle).
In addition, there are specific technical terms that are often used only in one industry or area, or a technical expression from the automotive industry can have a different meaning in the electrical industry. Specialist translations should therefore always be completed by native speakers who have the necessary expertise in the area in question. The best approach is to consult a professional translation service.
