Japanese translation and interpreter FAQs

Japanese is the national language of Japan and is spoken by an estimated 128 million people as of 2020.

Japanese is written using characters, and has a number of alphabets, including one which includes the use of Chinese characters, and another which used the Kanji writing system.

Did you know that for centuries, Japanese existed as only a spoken language that wasn’t written down.

Nowadays, there are multiple writing systems used for Japanese, including Chinese characters. However, the most widely used script is a combination of Kanji and Kana, which are logographic and syllabic writing systems respectively.

There are 55,958 Japanese speakers in Australia, according to the 2016 Census, representing 0.2% of the entire population.

Japanese speakers tend to be concentrated in large cities, with the largest populations residing in Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast & Melbourne.
