Estimating word count in Japanese documents
If you have a Japanese document and need to translate it into English, estimate about 2.2 Japanese characters for each English word. You can count the number of Japanese characters using MS Word (select Tools–Word Count).
Certified Japanese Translations
In Japan there is no official recognition of sworn translators, unlike in some European countries. If you need an official translation of a document in Japan, the translator will need to get her/his signature notarized and then attach an Apostille certificate to the translation.
The American Translator Association (ATA) provides certification of translations in the English to Japanese and Japanese to English language pairs. The Japanese Association of Translators (JAT) has no certification program.
