5. About Depositions

Commonly used in the law of the United States and Canada, depositions, also known in some states as Examinations Before Trials, are out-of court oral testimonies made by witnesses as a means of gathering information for later use in court or as part of the litigation discovery process. During the deposition, the witness/witnesses are asked questions by the litigators (attorneys) which they must answer under oath. No judge is present and the court is not involved in this process. The witness(es)’ testimony is recorded by either a stenographer or electronic recording device and may be called upon in court.

When a witness does not speak English as their first language, interpreters are required to bridge any communication difficultues. Given the vital importance of depositions in the litigation process, interpreters used in depositions must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol. They must have a thorough knowledge of “legalese” and any relevant industry terminology, as well as a thorough grasp of the nuances and idiosyncracies of both languages as questions are often challenging and/or subtle. Due to the recent increase in non-English speaking witnesses, highly-skilled deposition interpreters are now even more in demand. TJC can guarantee deposition interpreters of the highest calibre, with many years experience in this type of work and the competence to ensure clarity, precision and utmost discretion.

6. About Kobe

Situated only 30km from Osaka, on the north shore of Osaka Bay, Kobe is the sixth largest city in Japan and the capital of Hyogo Prefecture. Kobe is an important and cosmopolitan port city and has been so ever since it became one of the first cities to open to foreign trade in the nineteenth century.

The city is not only a hub for business and trade but is also renowned for its beauty. Located between the sea and the Rokko mountain range, Kobe attracts many tourists who come to visit its beaches, promenade the Harborland or get a glimpse of the famous red steel port tower (pictured).
