The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985

Japanese Astronomy Translation Services

Communication between multi-national parties necessitates astronomy-focused language assistance.

The Japanese Connection can offer this. Similarly, the interdisciplinary nature of astronomy (through its relationship to cosmology and physics, for example) often necessitates Japanese interaction with experts from all over the world through which language barriers are sure to arise. It is important that a translator understands technical terminology and procedures associated with astronomy.

Our Japanese language astronomy translators, besides being highly skilled and experienced, have a background or qualification in astronomy or astrophysics and are able to assist with all aspects of this dynamic field, from publication of new research to correspondence between research institutes. 



Astronomy and Japan

In Japan, astronomy is a subject of general cultural interest. Many amateur astronomists have taken to the subject and some claim to have discovered unknown supernovae. Japanese astronomists are interested in star formation; interstellar matter; black holes; starbursts; proto-planetary disks among other things. Branches of astronomy include: Infrared, X-ray and Galactic Astronomy and it is strongly linked to Astrophysics, Cosmology and Physics. The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) contributes hugely to this global subject and possesses one of the most advanced pieces of equipment in the field: The Subaru Telescope.

A team of Japanese astronomers using The Subaru Telescope claimed recently that they had discovered the ‘oldest galaxy’ through it. Often, such discoveries are the product of international collaborations and indeed, Japan has recently agreed to share the use of its telescope with like-minded astronomers from multiple other nations.
