Frequently Asked Questions (click to open answers)

Must I be a member of the ITI to join J-Net?

No, non-members of ITI can join as Friends of J-Net. About half of our members are in this category. Friends have access to our mailing list and are listed in our directory of members.

I'm looking for translation/interpreting work. Should I join J-Net?

Offers of work are posted to the members list, but nothing is guaranteed and this shouldn’t be the reason you join. J-Net is first and foremost a group of people with a professional interest in translation and interpreting between Japanese and English, not a translation company/agency.
