Human Japanese to English Translation

Momiji Tech Translations™ specializes in IT and other technologies to provide technical translations of Japanese that are smoothly understood by native speakers of English. With accurate and appropriate communications, your business will be ready to expand into the international market.


Technically Accurate

With a correct understanding of the content, including underlying technologies and concepts, technically precise translations are created using accurate English grammar and phrases, even when the source is technically inaccurate.


Culturally Accurate

Japanese is a context-based language. Seemingly similar symbols are used with a different set of rules. Sentences, paragraphs, and documents are also organized in different ways. Translating Japanese word-for-word ends up leaving out significant information and results in very disjointed content with no flow.


Humanly Accurate

Machine translation is not used at any stage of the translation process. The context of every single sentence is taken into consideration instead of using typical cookie-cutter, over-simplistic formulaic methodologies to ensure quality English translations that are natural and actually make sense.

R. J. Daniels

IT Engineer & Translator

His career as an engineer started in the IT industry in 1998 with a specialty in networking technologies including dial-up services, DSL, broadband, and fiber optics. In 2002, he moved to Japan to study Japanese full-time at Yamasa Institute where he passed level 2 of the JLPT after only 6 months of study. From there, he continued to study Japanese independently and passed level 1 of the JLPT the next year. During this study, he developed a strong interest in translation and more advanced study of Japanese. After passing level 1 of the JLPT, he took a position as an in-house translator for a publishing company. He then returned to his role as an IT engineer at the newly opened international airport in Aichi Japan with the ambition of pursuing both passions simultaneously. He continued to live in Japan performing his role as an IT engineer while developing his translation skill until returning to the US in 2010. After performing at American Airlines as the IT program manager of the joint business effort between American Airlines and Japan Airlines, he established Momiji Tech Translations, a translation company specializing in IT, technical content, and technical marketing material.
