Japanese Journals and Academic Research Translation Services

The Japanese Connection offers language services of all kinds, relating to academia and research. Be it at academic conferences; for scholarly articles;  lectures upon specialist subjects; global publishing or correspondence, our translators can deliver an informed, accurate and reliable translation service.

The specificity of technical language and the depth of thought within journal articles, for example, means clarity and accuracy are of utmost importance. Our 25 years’ experience means we have built up a huge network of translators with expertise and experience in a wide range of fields and specialisms. Their knowledge of both the Japanese language and their individual subjects means that no meaning will be lost and research can continue uninterrupted.  


Journals in Japan 

As a leader in important fields, like Stem Cell Research, Electronic Engineering, Robotics and Aerospace and Astronomical Studies, the information contained in Japan’s academic journals is of global importance.  It is very closely linked to the success of education, health care, industry, manufacturing and thus the Japanese economy. Home to hundreds of journals, published periodically throughout the year, many of which are accessible online, Japan contributes significantly to scholarly research. This is where breakthroughs are first published and scrutinized by other experts and it is certainly where Japan’s four Nobel Prize winning scientists will have made their names. Often, research requires international collaboration and higher-education institutions, laboratories or technology firms will communicate with specialists from all over the world in an academic capacity.

The globalization of academia and the universal accessibility of articles, papers and abstracts means that language barriers can become a problem. Journal publishers themselves are often multi-national and are run from numerous offices spread across the globe. Wiley-Blackwell publishers exemplify this, owning and distributing over 1,500 scientific, technical, medical and scholarly journals every year in collaboration with the world-leading societies, including those of Japan.
