Why Japanese-to-English translation?
It’s no secret that Japanese anime, manga, film, and TV series have a large fanbase outside of Japan. Thanks to the internet, digital content, online streaming services and more, the popularity of Japanese media is only growing, which means that there is always a demand for Japanese-to-English media translators. In this trial lesson, you’ll have a chance to try your hand at creating English subtitles, and learn more about the fun and challenging translation process. No previous translation experience is necessary, and we accept students of any English/Japanese level.
