Does anyone know of any good translators website in Japan? That is, a Japanese-language site similar to Proz where Japanese agencies and freelance translators get in contact with each other.

A few sites I know of ... Mar 23, 2006

FYI

I just pick up some of the prominent sites I know of ...

HONYAKUSHA DIRECTORY (翻訳者ディレクトリ)
http://trans.kato.gr.jp/translators/english/

Honyaku Paradise (翻訳パラダイス)
http://www.honyaku-paradise.com/

e-Honyaku Portal (e-翻訳ポータル)
http://www.owaki.mmcgi.com/portal/

I should note some of the present Japanese websites are "Japanese Only", while only few others may provide bilingual versions in English and Japanese. That's just a general phenomenon.

Specifically the first two above include outstanding translator databases which I myself sometimes use and via which I'm contacted by domestic agencies. The third shows both medium-sized agency and translator lists.

You may use all of the above sites for free (some require registration in advance). Maybe you would better check out by yourself.

thanks! Mar 25, 2006

Thanks for those links. I will definitely take a look at those sites. I suppose Japanese agencies often prefer using a Japanese-language translators site, and that it therefore would be useful to register at some site like that as well.
