Experience the world of a visualmedia translator at the Japan Visualmedia Translation Academy Free Trial Lesson. We are waiting for anyone with a passion for learning the skills behind subtitling and dubbing translation.
Japanese-English Subtitle Translation Introduction
In recent years, Japanese anime, manga, film, and TV series have become more and more prominent on the international stage and this has led to a rapid increase in demand for Japanese-to-English translators. In this trial lesson, participants will have a chance to try their hand at creating English subtitles, and exchanging thoughts and ideas on the translation process as a group. No previous translation experience is necessary, and we accept students of any English/Japanese level.
*For those living outside of Tokyo, Chiba, Saitama, or Kanagawa.
*Registration period：January-April / June-October
*For non-native speakers of Japanese: Please note that this translation trial lesson requires upper
intermediate/advanced Japanese ability(around JLPT N2 level or above).
*Next Lesson will be held this summer. (TBD)
Participation is free of charge.
We welcome anyone with a passion for film and TV series, enthusiasts with an interest for subbing and dubbing or anyone simply looking to learn more about the visualmedia translation world.
