From global to local

Japanese localisation

As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal Japanese language. Many Japanese words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to an Japanese speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Ewokese. On the other side, there are some words that may be used in all Japanese-speaking countries, but which have entirely different meanings depending on which of those countries you’re in.

As such, if you’re planning on expanding your business to one of these Japanese-speaking countries, it’s important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced Japanese translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.

Cultural knowledge

Japanese language history

The Origin of Japanese and its relationship to other languages is perhaps one of the most debated topics within the field of Historical Linguistics. In fact, Japanese is the only major language whose genetic affiliation is not known.

Japanese has been traditionally believed to be connected to the Ural-Altaic family, spreading over much of Central Asia, the Eastern parts of the now Russian Siberia. Other languages in the Altaic family include Mongolian, Tungusic and according to some scholars also Korean – although Korean is sometimes also considered another isolate.

Evidence for the link between Korean, Japanese and Turkish lies in the fact that all three are agglutinative languages and particularly in the case of Korean, both languages do share various significant characteristics, from the general structure of the language to vowel harmony, as well as lack of conjunctions. However, the relationship to Korean, although considered plausible, is not demonstrated.

Going global

Japanese is the gateway to Asian markets

Japan is a fascinating country of economic and business prowess, rich culture, technical wizardry, spatial conundrums and contradictions. It is the world’s third largest economy after the US and China and second largest computer and telecommunications market in the world. This makes it the perfect candidate for brand expansion, especially if you want a chance to enter the Asian market.

Japan is also synonymous with quality and innovation and this goes hand-in-hand with Japanese companies’ commitment and loyalty to business partners. Furthermore, for many foreign companies, Japan has also become the place for development of new products and concepts in Asia.

Formal vs. informal

Level of formality in Japanese

Unlike most European languages, Japanese has an extensive grammatical system to express politeness and formality.

Broadly speaking, there are three main politeness levels in spoken Japanese: the plain form (kudaketa), the simple polite form (teinei) and the advanced polite form (keigo).

Since most relationships are not equal in Japanese society, one person typically has a higher position. This position is determined by a variety of factors including job, age, experience, or even psychological state (e.g., a person asking a favor tends to do so politely). The person in the lower position is expected to use a polite form of speech, whereas the other might use a more plain form. Strangers will also speak to each other politely. Japanese children rarely use polite speech until their teens, at which point they are expected to begin speaking in a more adult manner.

Language differences

Japanese dialects

Besides the Japanese language, the other widely used language in Japan is the Ryukyuan language. While Ryukyuan has many speakers spread all over the country, the language is predominantly used in the Ryukyu Islands with the total number of Ryukyuan speakers in the region numbering over 1.45 million people with fluent speakers being mainly composed of the older generation. Ryukyuan is a member of the Japonic language family and is closely related to Nihongo (Japanese) language with the two languages sharing syllables as well as the moraic rhythm.

In recent years, the use of Ryukyuan has faced a sharp decline with the younger generation preferring to use Japanese or corrupted versions of Ryukyuan. Linguists in Japan agree that the language is facing a real threat of extinction and UNESCO has classified the language as endangered.
