Interpreting

There are various types of interpreting services.

Only well-organized interpreting services can facilitate a high level of communication. 

Our experienced coordinators offer our clients interpretation plans that include the interpreters, different types of interpretation and the equipment best suited for each situation.

Areas

Politics, Economy, Finance, Management, Medicine, Pharmacy, Bio, Nuclear, Energy, Environment, Advertisement, Marketing, IT, Communication, Events, Culture, etc.

​Languages

English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Italian, Portuguese, Indonesian, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese Sign Language, and others

Types of Interpreting
Consecutive interpreting

While the speaker is speaking, the interpreter takes notes; when the speaker pauses, the interpreter states, in the target language, what the speaker has just said. This type of interpretation, compared to simultaneous interpreting, takes almost twice as long, but is a more accurate type of interpretation.

[Applications]

Escorting and attending to important guests, Courtesy Calls, Inspections, Internal Meetings, Seminars, Trade Fairs, Exhibitions, etc.

Simultaneous interpreting

Interpreters listen to the speakers in a booth using headphones and simultaneously send the interpretations via microphone. The audience hears the interpreters’ voices through receivers.

For this kind of interpretation, simultaneous interpreting equipment is required, as well as audio systems.

[Applications]

Conferences (including International and Academic), Internal Meetings, Symposia, Seminars, Trade Fairs, Exhibitions, etc.

Whisper interpreting

This is the same as simultaneous interpreting, but in this case, the interpreter is next to the clients and interprets for them in a whisper.

Interpreting for multiple clients can be done using portable interpreting equipment.

[Applications]

Escorting and attending to important guests, Courtesy Calls, Inspections, Conferences (including International and Academic), Internal Meetings, Symposia, Seminars, Trade Fairs, Exhibitions, etc.

Sign language interpreting

Sign language interpreting is also available. Please contact us for details.

[Applications]

Escorting and attending to important guests, Courtesy Calls, Inspections, Conferences (including International and Academic), Internal Meetings, Symposia, Seminars, Trade Fairs, Exhibitions, etc.

Interpretation Process
1 Interpretation inquiry

Clients provide information about the conference: the type, schedule, venue, language(s), type of interpreting required (simultaneous, consecutive or whispered) and the number of participants.

2 Estimate and proposal

Based on the client's needs, we will propose the most suitable type of interpreting, the number of interpreters and type of equipment needed, and then draw up an estimate.

3 Order (Interpreters confirmed)

Upon receipt of an order and after carefully screening the interpreters' experience and expertise, we determine which interpreters are most suitable for the client's needs and inform the client of the details.*

 

(Note: Once an order is placed, if it is then cancelled, a cancellation fee may be charged.)

4 Confirmation of the details

We confirm the time and location of the meeting, whether a preparatory meeting is needed, and other details.

5 Materials

In order to provide the highest quality interpretation, we ask that clients provide us in advance with the text of the talk and other presentation materials that the speakers will use. 

6 On site

Our coordinators can be present at the site as necessary.

7 Feedback

After conclusion of the interpretation, we ask our clients for feedback on our interpreters' performance so that we can improve our services.
