Bilingva Translation and Interpreting

Testimonials

I wanted to give you some feedback

on your interpreting team - they were awesome! They were the most unobtrusive interpreters I've ever worked with. They were very careful to cover their mouths/faces when they had to get close to the speakers to hear them, they seemed to be a good team (trading off seamlessly when one needed water, or a break), and they whispered so quietly. They were amazing! Very professional, polite, and appreciative. Thank you, and I look forward to working with you again in the future!

About Japanese Language

Japanese (日本語) is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities. The Japanese language is written with a combination of three scripts: Chinese characters called kanji (漢字), and two syllabic (or moraic) scripts made up of modified Chinese characters, hiragana (ひらがな or 平仮名) and katakana (カタカナ or 片仮名). The Latin alphabet, rōmaji (ローマ字), is also often used in modern Japanese, especially for company names and logos, advertising, and when entering Japanese text into a computer. Arabic numerals are generally used for numbers, but traditional Sino-Japanese numerals are also commonplace (see Japanese numerals).

Modern Japanese is considered to begin with the Edo period in 1600. Since old to middle, the de facto Standard Japanese had been Kansai dialect, especially Kyoto. However, during the Edo period, Edo (now Tokyo) developed into the largest city in Japan, and Edo Tokyo dialect became the Standard Japanese position. Since the end of Sakoku in 1853, the flow of loanwords from European languages has increased significantly – the last half-century or so has seen a very large volume of words borrowed from English, especially words about technology.
