Hello all--



I\'m a fairly green Japanese to English translator, and I\'m planning to take the ATA\'s accreditation test in June. I took a few practice tests over the winter and didn\'t fail them too badly, and with a good bit of cramming over the next few weeks I\'m hoping to pass. I\'d greatly appreciate any advice those of you who have taken the test might have!

My advice is to make a text that makes sense in English AND that goes with the Japanese. Always make sure your verbs go with your nouns:

Example-

Nation: found, create, NOT set up

Company: create, found OR set up

Family: start, not begin

See what I mean?



Good luck

Jane
