Origins of the Japanese language and accent
Portuguese sailors began trading with the Japanese in the 1500s and as a result, Japanese has some Portuguese loan words. Tokyo became the largest city in Japan, which influenced the dialect and eventually it became Standard Japanese. Since 1945 the Japanese language has been influenced by European words, most commonly English and this is thought to be due to the emergence of new technology.
Brazil has a large Japanese migrant community. The people began to arrive in Brazil in 1908 and many of them became coffee plantation owners.
Standard Japanese is taught in schools and used for official purposes, but there is also a common language called Kyotsugo, meaning common language and this can be heard in homes throughout Japan.
There are a large number of Japanese dialects and some, in more remote mountainous regions, are not mutually intelligible. Many European speakers now know how to speak a few words in Japanese, thanks to the popularity of computer games such as World of Warcraft and others, which feature Japanese speakers.
To hear a Japanese person speaking English with a Japanese accent, listen to the Johnathan Ross interview with Yoko Ono.

Fantastic to work with
The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects
I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.

Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
