    See Himani,
    Our culture is changing slowly. And the language which you know are not very popular and used in India. Big companies, where engineering works are carried out. There you can find job. But in normal life you may do something else. Or you have to wait till you finnd the job. May be some websites can provide you such work still it is difficult to find Japanese translation Job. But don’t loose hope.
