Now is a great time to join JAT. Register this week and you could save 10,000 yen – the equivalent of a year’s membership.

How do you save 10,000 yen? Well, as a JAT member, you receive a 5,000 yen discount on registration to the International Japanese English Translation (IJET) Conference from Saturday to Sunday, April 24 to 25 in Miyazaki. Register for IJET by Sunday, February 28 and you’re entitled to a 2,000-yen early-bird discount. More info here:

Can’t make it to Miyazaki? You can still benefit from 3,000 yen if you participate in a celebration of JAT’s 25th anniversary with other JAT members in your locality. JAT will subsidize 3,000 yen per JAT member for any gathering of three or more JAT members between May 4 and 18 (the two-week period either side of our anniversary on May 11), provided the organiser sends us a group photograph including the day’s newspaper with the date visible. We plan to upload photos to the new website when it’s up and running. The gatherings are intended to encourage JAT members to get together to share information and develop networks.

We look forward to welcoming new members to our mailing list and events over the coming weeks!
