When It Comes to Japanese Transcription, We’re Masters

Even though only approximately 130,000 people around the world have embarked on the journey of learning the notoriously difficult Japanese language, its 128,200,000 native speakers make Japanese one of the most widely spoken languages worldwide. Nearly all inhabitants of Japan speak Japanese, and the language is also used as a means of communication in smaller Japanese communities in various cities across the globe.

Here at, we believe your Japanese message deserves to be heard, and we can assist you in disseminating it. We’ll deliver highly professional, extremely accurate transcripts in your choice of Japanese or English. What can you use our transcripts for? How about conducting ethnographic research, improving your company’s SEO efforts, making information more accessible, or generating informative content to educate people? Those are just a few examples.

All Japanese Speakers Are Human, But Robots Are Useful Tools

Japan is known for its robots and technological prowess, but nonetheless, no software can truly speak Japanese. If a speech-to-text program attempts to transcribe a recording in any language, the result is inevitably imprecise, rife with errors. In Japanese, this problem is magnified by issues with kanji and kana conversion conventions. But, of course, especially as the technology advances, it certainly has a use. Here at, we like to use speech recognition software as a foundation that our human transcriptionists work from to craft a reliable transcript.

Our skilled transcriptionists are masters of the Japanese language, fluent in its many idioms, slang expressions, and accents. Japanese has many dialects, but they pose no problem for our vastly experienced transcriptionists, who are familiar with Kanto-ben, Kansai-ben, Kyoto-ben, and others. We even have transcriptionists who specialize in particular dialects to ensure the highest level of precision in your transcript.

Customize Your Japanese Transcript

Here at, we want your transcript to fit your needs to a T. That’s why we offer significant flexibility in how your transcript looks. We can transcribe your clip into kanji, hiragana, or katakana according to your preferences. If your target audience consists of children or Japanese learners, we can add furigana, too. Or, if you prefer, we can use romaji (Latin characters), with your choice of transliteration style.

If your target audience is international, we can even take it a step further and translate your audio or video to deliver a transcript in English. The material we work with has included content from academia, business, and all sorts of other areas, so we’re experienced with a wide variety of subjects. It’s also okay if your Japanese recording contains a lot of background noise, multiple speakers, or poor enunciation, because our talented transcriptionists can work with any sort of file.
