I found inconsistent translations between Mac and PC.
These are recommended translation.

View = 表示
Swatch = スウォッチ

For "Cycle Selection Box" of Move Tool, 
Translation should be "選択ボックスを循環"
Current translation"サイクル選択ボックス" doesn't make sense.

Or since there are only two modes, "選択ボックスを切替" might be more suitable.
This means toggling or switching rather than cycling.

Just curious: how much value is there in a Japanese translation of the UI when there is no vertical text support?

It's still valuable since most Japanese don't speak English.
Vertical text is essential in publishing/printing industry for sure, but in certain industries such as web, photography or painting, they can go without vertical text in many case.
Unless Affinity become well known, people won't be interested in it and domination by Adobe will continue.
So we have to gain users in industries where vertical text is less important first.

Translation for "Show selection in Layer Panel" is inconsistent between Mac and Windows.

Hello, I also found a mistake of translation, and I would like to share that.
When we try to close a modified document, Affinity Designer shows a dialog, and the mistake is in the dialog.

The dialog says:
“<名称未設定>は削除されています。
ドキュメントを閉じようとしています。変更内容を保存しますか?”

The English meaning is:
“<Untitled> has been deleted.
The document is about to close, would you like to save your changed?”

I think that a correct Japanese message is:
“<名称未設定>は変更されています。
ドキュメントを閉じようとしています。変更内容を保存しますか?”.

Current Dialog Images:
