Japanese to English
Jul 2, 2008

I am English-Japanese bilingual and have just started working for a city hall in Japan. As it is just a short term contract (2 years) and I would like to move into freelance translation once my contract finishes, I would like to try and get some sort of certification in the mean time. I am working full time, so this would have to be a correspondence course, and preferably on the short side (up to 6 months).
In particular I would be interested to move into the field of technical / scientific translation.

Is there anyne out there who has done a course like this?
Is there anyone out there who can recommend a course?

Thank you to everyone in advance.

Sunglobal's correspondence course Jul 9, 2008

Hi Sam,

How about Sunglobal's correspondence course? Their website is Japanese only though.

If you live near Tokyo, you can join July 26 Powwow and ask fellows about some other excellent correspondence courses.

Hope this helps.
