Japanese-English Subtitle Translation Introduction & JVTA Info Session
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.
Lessons are available in both Japanese and English.
Registration period：January-April / June-October
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.
