I need a japanese translator. Like a good, no kidding, “really knows the language like a native” translator.
I need to hire this person to do some “interface localization” for a chunk of software.
Where do I start? Do I talk to the local university language programs? Do I loiter around the best tokyo style sushi restaurants? Do I wander japantown muttering “ohayo gozaimasu! watashi wa geek desu! nihogo wakarimasta?”
