I teach a lot of businesspeople. They often tell me that they have to “overwork”. What they mean is “do overtime”.

“Overwork” is best translated in Japanese as 「過労」. “Overtime” is 「残業」.

An ad for an English school in Japan

All languages borrow words from other languages. The Japanese language uses a lot of phrases and words from English and other languages. Many times they are changed in their meaning or usage. That means that when you use these words in English, you should be careful.
