Why you need a native English content creator
Improve engagement with Your English speaking audience
Connecting with your foreign audience requires you to help them understand both language and culture. The nuances of the English language make it difficult to translate naturally, just as a person who is perfect in textbook Japanese would sound a bit strange in everyday communication. A native English content creator understands the subtleties of the language as well as differences in Japanese and Western cultures that can affect your engagement with a Western audience.
Save Time and Money
Translating Japanese content into English can be a time-consuming and expensive process. Because of the differences between Japanese and English in grammatical structure and the many Japanese words that are difficult to express in English, entire sections of text may need to be rewritten in order to be translated. Moreover, translated text usually needs to be polished by an editor, adding more time and cost to the process. Engaging a writer to create new content is faster and less expensive than you might imagine.
Create Unique SEO-Optimized Content
Rather than publishing the same old content rehashed in English, make your media stand out by creating original content. Google search results love new and unique content, especially when the content has been optimized to be searchable. Why take a chance on a translated article that may rarely be seen in search results when you can have something brand new customized just for your business?
