Literature in Japan

The insatiable audience for good books means that Japanese publishing houses and independent writers alike must prepare their work for international consumption outside of Japan, as well as considering matters of intellectual property and royalties. In a global literature market, it is vital that new works are available in multiple languages other than Japanese, thus broadening the market availability of any title. Japanese authors such as Kenzaburō ÅŒe, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Haruki Murakami continue to delight and enthrall audiences across the globe, whilst Belgian writer Amélie Nothomb’s writings about her experiences in Japan gained huge popularity in Japan.

Our literature interpretation service covers areas such as:



Fiction & Non-Fiction

Scientific / Science Fiction

Cartoons, Manga, GPS drawing

Journals / Academic Titles



Political, Humanitarian

Romance / Romantic

Childrens' Books

Autobiography / Biography

Reference documents
