Japanese Translation Per Hour Pricing - Save up to 40%

At Straker we link the economic cost of a professional Japanese translation to the time it takes to complete the translation – then focus on improving the efficiency of delivering that service (speed of translation), this in most cases has the outcome of significantly dropping the price to the client. Simply put, this means we can charge by the hour (not by the traditional per-word method) and use tools that make our translators really efficient and save our clients money and time.

ISO 9001:2008 & EN 15038:2006 quality certified

Straker is certified to conform to the rigorous requirements of the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard. We also apply SAE J2450 Recommended Practice to quantify our quality.

We are also certified to EN:15038:2006 - the highest global quality standard for translation services.

Please note that the EN15038 standard was replaced by the new ISO17100 standard in October 2015. All companies certified under the existing EN15038 standard have three years to update to the new ISO version. Straker will be updating our certification to ISO17100 in March 2016. There are only a couple of minor changes in the new standard but they are ones that we already comply with.

ABOUT THE JAPANESE LANGUAGE

Japanese (日本語 ) is spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities.  Japanese is an agglutinative language and a mora-timed language. It has a relatively small sound inventory, and a lexically significant pitch-accent system. It is distinguished by a complex system of honorifics reflecting the nature of Japanese society, with verb forms and particular vocabulary to indicate the relative status of the speaker, the listener, and persons mentioned in conversation.

The Japanese language is written with a combination of three scripts: Chinese characters called kanji (漢字), and two syllabic scripts made up of modified Chinese characters, hiragana (ひらがな or 平仮名) and katakana (カタカナ or 片仮名). The Latin alphabet, rōmaji (ローマ字), is also often used in modern Japanese, especially for company names and logos, advertising, and when entering Japanese text into a computer. Arabic numerals are generally used for numbers, but traditional Sino-Japanese numerals are also commonplace.
