More about Japanese voice actors and language
Japan has the world’s largest electronics consumer goods industry.
Japanese brands such as Canon, Toshiba, Sony and Nintendo are well established and beloved of consumers. This gives rise to the perception of the Japanese as ‘techie’ or ‘nerdy’.
It’s not uncommon to find Japanese voice actors speaking in English. The Japanese accent adds credibility in anything high-tech, such as explainers, corporate videos and presentations. Japanese voice actors are thus in very high demand and often command higher than average voice fees.
The Japanese language consists of many loan words borrowed from English. Mainly for words where there is no practical expression in Japanese. They are pronounced using Japanese rules and syllables and this can make them difficult to recognise. A favourite restaurant in Japan is Makudonarudo. Can you guess which popular restaurant chain this is?
