Japan Visualmedia Translation Academy

Japan Visualmedia Translation Academy (JVTA) is a Tokyo-based school specialized in training professional translators for visual media content. Graduates of JVTA’s courses who pass the trial examination will be offered opportunities to work on unique and exciting translation projects offered by JVTA’s translation agency department, the Media Translation Center (MTC).

Since the implementation of the Cool Japan Strategy, the Japanese government has ignited a vast business expansion helping creators introduce rich content to the global market. JVTA was at the forefront of this trend, establishing a curriculum for Japanese-to-English visual media translation in 2008. With Japanese content booming around the world, the demand for qualified Japanese-to-English translators has never been higher.

We at JVTA welcome anyone with an appreciation for visual media content looking to acquire a unique skill set and pursue a career as a linguistic media professional to enrich today’s ever-globalizing society.
