Interested in learning what it takes to become a Japanese-to-English visual media translator? Come join us at JVTA and take a free trial lesson for our Japanese-to-English Visualmedia Translation Course! This trial lesson is held online for those who are not able to join our Open School events held at JVTA on Saturdays and Sundays. You can even join from outside Japan!
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. We recommend having at least JLT N2 level Japanese to get the most out of the trial lesson, and the course itself.
The lesson time is 80 minutes, and the trial lesson part will be held in English, with the explanation about the school in Japanese. After the lesson, you’ll have a chance to ask any questions you have, so if you’re interested in learning more about our school and course, this is the best place to start.
