Japanese Simultaneous Interpreters for Conferences | London | UK | Worldwide

English to Japanese, Japanese to English and multiple other languages

With hundreds of international conferences taking place in Japan every year and thousands of Japanese delegates attending conferences on all manner of subjects elsewhere, qualified Japanese conference interpreters are in high demand.

Luckily, whatever the nature of your conference, TJC Global can provide expert Japanese simultaneous interpreters for conferences of all natures. We specialise in providing a tailored service, providing interpreters who have a background or qualification in the relevant subject and/or industry. Their experience and expertise means interpreting is accurate and subtle nuances are conveyed effectively. This is particularly important when it comes to Japanese interpreting as vastly differing sentence construction and the use of double negatives can often cause confusion for native Japanese speakers.

At TJC Global we have over 25 years’ experience providing experienced Japanese conference interpreters with in-depth knowledge of the subject at hand for many local and global organisations in locations all over the globe.

What forms of interpretation can TJC Global provide?

Video / videoconference interpreting: (also Video Remote Interpreting available) TJC provide language interpreting services to support your business discussions, conferences, legal / court / arbitration / litigation, and all other online business interactions in industry during these challenging times.

Participants can communicate with one another via video or voice calls using laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. These can be recorded should you wish to take minutes. Our professionally qualified interpreters can join your online virtual meeting, event, or proceeding, for example, and interpret remotely in the language pairing you require, so as to facilitate smooth communication between all parties.

Telephone / teleconference interpreting is a practical way to bridge any language barriers. The interpreter is either located remotely (away from either party) or is with one of the parties. In both cases they deliver interpreting services through telephone conferencing.

Telephone interpretation is useful for clients who cannot travel to their counterparts’ country, but still wish, for example, to hold business discussions or to communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are very happy to provide you with professionally qualified interpreters around the world in almost any selected language combinations.

Simultaneous interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI))

is used for international conferences, critical business discussions, seminars & symposiums. In this case, there are usually two to three interpreters situated in a booth, away from the audience, who take turns to interpret at high speed, changing over every 15-20 minutes to avoid fatigue.

The interpreters use headsets to listen to the message of the speaker and repeat it immediately (practically “simultaneously”) in the target language for the benefit of relevant audience members.

Consecutive interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)) is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. The interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties – at a stand or elsewhere.

About: Japanese

Spoken by around 125 million people, Japanese is the predominant language of Japan and a member of the Japonic language family. Traditionally unknown to speakers of other languages (perhaps due to the dramatic difference in structure, sound and alphabet to the main European languages) Japanese has now become an important business language and is widely studied by foreigners. In 2012 alone, 4 million people were learning Japanese. This surge of interest is largely due to the Japanese economic boom in the 80s; its status as a technology/engineering giant, as well as to mass global interest in Japanese culture such as ‘Manga’ and ‘Anime’.

Although they may appear similar to non-speakers, Chinese and Japanese have no genealogical relationship. Nonetheless, Japanese script makes use of thousands of Chinese characters called ‘Kanji’, and has done so for centuries. ‘Kanji’ is just one of three alphabets used in Japanese, the others being ‘Hiragana’ and ‘Katakana’ (with the Latin script alphabet or ‘Romaji’ used for foreign terms). Hiragana is used for the purely Japanese alphabet, while Katakana, which looks to the untrained eye simpler than both Hiragana and Kanji, is a series of characters which represent individual Japanese phonemes or sounds. It is often used to transcribe foreign words and in the past, was used as shorthand for the more complex ‘Kanji’.

Japanese is spoken by around 99% of the Japanese population. Dialects and variations, such as the Rkyukyan languages, including Kunigami, Okinawan and Amami, are spoken by some in Okinawa, but few children now learn these. Most schools instead teach Japanese and English to children.

Like any other nation, Japan has its own business etiquette. See our Doing Business in Japan Page to find out more.
