Jinyu’s Chinese-Japanese Translation Insights

1. Differences Between Japanese and Chinese

For Western readers, Japanese and Chinese are alike: these two languages are bizarre in pronunciation and share a similar written form (square character). There are many differences between Japanese and Chinese. Here are some:

  • Sentence structures. Like English, most of the Chinese sentences are ordered in “SVO” (Subject Verb Object) form, while a Japanese sentence is ordered in the “SOV” type.
  • Changes at the end of sentences. Japanese belongs to an agglutinating language in which changeable sentence rears are applied to indicate tenses, tones, and many other forms.
  • Kanas and Chinese characters. Japanese written forms contain Chinese characters and kanas, in which Chinese characters are often dissimilar from those used in China, and they act as nouns in most cases.
  • Tenses. There may be tenses in Japanese but not in Chinese. The tense-related changes in Japanese (verbs, orders, and appended elements) are more complemented than those in English.
  • Borrowed words. There are lots of borrowed words in Japanese which are expressed in katakana forms. Accordingly, nouns in katakana forms are mostly used to describe newly emerged things, such as “バナナ (banana)”, “コンピューター (computer)”, “パスポート (passport)”.
  • Pronunciations. Even if a word has the same written form in Chinese and Japanese, they don’t share the same meaning on most occasions. Most importantly, 99% of them are not pronounced the same.

2. Japanese to Chinese Translation strategies

When translating from Japanese to Chinese, our language team uses a series of strategies to overcome the language obstacles:

  • Preparing well for both language skills and relevant knowledge. To become a successful Japanese-Chinese translator, one should have great expertise in grammar rules, expressions, and cultures of the target language and source language. Meanwhile, we must obtain a large amount of information or knowledge of political, economic, cultural, and technological aspects.
  • Focusing on keywords. The article is composed of several sentences, and the vocabulary constitutes the sentence. Therefore, we can capture the critical information of the sentence by grasping each sentence’s keywords when translating.
  • Understanding the logical thinking manner of Japanese/Chinese. Logic is the reflection of people’s way of thinking in language. When translating between Japanese and Chinese, determining the level of processing and structural arrangement of the target sentence based on the inherent (including explicit and implicit) logical relationship of the original sentence is the logical thinking of translation.
  • Strategically using translation skills for long sentences. In Japanese sentences, the predicate is placed behind, and the subject and object are often omitted, which makes the translation of long sentences more difficult. Therefore, properly using some translation skills such as splitting translation, merging translation, omitting translation, and reversing translation is helpful.

3. Chinese-Japanese Translation Examples

Here are some of the examples of our recent Chinese-Japanese translation projects:

与去年相比,原油和天然气的产量分别增长了 28%和 23%,制油技术也达到先进水平。
前節で述べた構造解析の結果、鞭毛モータには回転に必要な 2 と 4 の遺伝子からできたタンパク質が含まれていないことが明らかになった。モータの機能にとって不可欠の要素が、鞭毛モータを精製する過程で脱落したと考えられる。その意味では、今まで述べた鞭毛モータはモータの一部であって全部ではない。モータが回転するためには回転子と固定子が不可欠である。Mリングを回転子とすると、鞭毛モータの固定子はいまだに見つかっていない。
通过解析前项所述构造,说明他们都不含有从对鞭毛马达的旋转起到作用的 2、4 基因得到的蛋白质。这被认为是该马达机能不可或缺的要素,在提炼鞭毛马达的过程中脱落了。这意味着到目前为止所述的鞭毛马达只是马达的一部分,并不是全部。马达的旋转离不开转子和定子。以 M 环为转子,鞭毛马达的定子目前还没有发现。

4. How we Perform Chinese-Japanese Document Translation

To obtain a high-quality translation, we have a highly streamlined working process for our Chinese-Japanese translation projects. Whether it is a massive package of engineering documents, pages of certified material or a business contract, our linguists always stick to the following workflow:

  • Project preparation (task preview, resource attaching, job assignment, file uploading);
  • Translation (Trados GroupShare Cloud Server Based);
  • Finishing (editing and evaluating by peer human-revising and automatic correcting);
  • Proofreading (checked by PM or senior proofreader to inspect accurateness, consistency, tones, and styles);

With the help of our Trados GroupShare Cloud Server, the big Japanese-Chinese translation projects become easy to:

  • Overall Preview (word count, translation element, memory matching);
  • Resource Uploading (industry-based memory database syncing, glossary uploading, user-generated term updating);
  • Task Splitting (finished by team leader manually, with each packet connected by 1 or 2 spare translators);
  • Process Tracking (online progress visible for Trados users);
  • Online Cooperation (multiple linguists can do one project segment);
  • Daily Internal Meetings (both online and offline to exchange ideas on translation styles difficulties based on specific projects.);
  • Cross Proofreading (This process is before our senior or PM proofreading as online coordination is smooth);

5. How we Prepare for QA Implement, Emergency, and Chinese-Japanese Translator Evaluation

We have termbase specialists responsible for collecting data from each project, so our memory database and termbase are project-based or company-based rather than industry-based to ensure accuracy. For those emergency events like server downtime, connection dropping, or abruptly increasing translation demand, we combat them beforehand. Meanwhile, we have a technology department that quickly deals with network issues and new hardware & software issues. As Jinyu has more than 15 years of translation experience, our secure local connections always allow us to have 50% – 200% additional translation capacity.


We perform strict standards for our recruitment based on educational background, translation experience, interpersonal skills, and industry knowledge. Our internal linguist evaluation criteria include:

  • Blind Test (language, translation);
  • Monthly Performance (output, error rate, resource contribution);
  • Interactive Record (daily meeting suggestion, linguistic dialogue, management-related understanding);
  • Customer Satisfaction Rate (we have a rotation mechanism for project manager appointments so that it is easy to track based on specific projects);
  • General Qualifications (diplomas, years of working experiences, subject-matter working background, historical working experience);
