And obviously your fly by nighter outfit must be pretty new to ask a Japanese translator "Can you read Kanji ?"  Duh !!!  That's like asking someone, Do you know the entire alphabet ?

夜行装?但这跟问一个日本语翻译你懂Kanji有关系么?我不懂这中间的逻辑。

fly by night 是个美国俚语,有不可信、欺诈的意思,“fly by nighter” outfit就是这是一家不可靠的公司或组织

在翻译圈,这样的公司还真不少,把译稿给它发出去,它就飞得无影无踪了
