    The Japanese Community in Australia

    In 1969, the first Japanese immigrants arrived in Sydney under the Skilled Migration Program. However, there were only 468 Japan-born recorded as living in Australia at the time of the 1971 Census.

    From 1986 to 1991, there was a further increase in settler arrivals, with an average of about 1400 each year, many coming under the Skilled and Business migration categories. More than half of the Japan-born in Australia have arrived in the last ten years, including as students.

    According to the 2016 Australian Census, 0.4% of the population were born in Japan or 98,766 people. 108, 997 Australians (0.5%) speak Japanese in their homes.

    Japanese Marketing Translation Services

    Translation into Japanese requires a degree of creative license on the part of the translator. Literal translation rarely conveys the intended meaning to an Japanese audience.

We provide scalable Japanese translation solutions for marketing campaigns ranging from the translation of flyers and brochures through to the entire advertising campaigns for corporations and state government, across print, video, website and multimedia platforms.

It is also a requirement that any Japanese translations submitted to court in Australia are carried out by and certified by an Japanese translator with professional level accreditation.

    The Japanese Written Language (Nihongo, 日本語)

    Japanese is the first language of approximately 130 million people.

    Japan’s distinctive culture is displayed not only through it’s foreign policy, customs, food and etiquette but also through the Japanese language. Different grammar and different words are used to address different audiences. Differences in societal status, gender and age will have a bearing on how that persons speaks to reflect his or her status in society.

    Japanese has an extremely complicated writing system. The Japanese writing system can be traced back to the 4th century AD and the introduction of Chinese writing (kanji). Because kanji could not represent all the elements of the Japanese language, hiragana and katakana were created in the 12th century. Hiragana and katakana are two sets of phonetic syllabaries (containing approximately 50 syllables in each). Today a 4th script (rōmaji – Roman script) has been adopted into the Japanese written language.

    Kanji are used to write nouns, including proper names, and stems of adjectives and verbs;

    Hiragana is used to write inflectional endings for adjectives and verbs, various grammatical particles, words for which there are no kanji, and some high frequency words;

    Katakana is mostly used to write loanwords;

    Rōmaji is used to write Arabic numerals, international units of measurement, and acronyms. The Internet has accelerated its spread.
