Week 4
"The Importance of Voice: Making Translations 'Sound' Good" by Ms. Erica Friedman

The Japanese Studies Program is pleased to offer a series of four workshops in SS21 on the J-Pop Translation & Adaptation. Each workshop focuses on a key aspect of translation & adaptation in the field of Japanese popular culture, in particular that of manga. While this workshop series presents Japanese materials, many of the takeaways will be relevant to anyone aspiring to work professionally as a translator. The language of instruction will be English, and everyone is welcome, even those who do not have Japanese language backgrounds. Each workshop will include hands-on activities focusing on strategies and methodologies for translation & adaptation. Those who attend all four workshops will receive a certificate of participation.

Please register in advance by contacting the series organizer, Dr. Catherine Ryu at ryuc(at)

This workshop series is supported by the Asian Studies Center Virtual Speaker Program and is organized by the MSU Japanese Studies Program
