About the JLD

It was 20 years ago...

The Japanese Language Division (JLD) was created to serve as a means of communication among its members, to provide information and services to its members in specific fields of interest related to translation from and into the Japanese language. As of October 1, 2017, the JLD has grown to 937 members! All JLD members are invited to join the JLD listserv, a discussion forum open to all JLD members. Important information about the annual conference is also posted to this list. To join, please visit groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/jld-list/info.
