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’.

Differences in Japanese & Chinese

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. At the same time, Katakana, which looks to the untrained eye simpler than both Hiragana and Kanji, is a series of characters that represent individual Japanese phonemes or sounds. It is often used to transcribe foreign words, and in the past, it was used as a 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.

What forms of interpreter services can TJC Global provide?

Dutch arbitration interpeter video

Video/videoconference interpreting: (Video remote interpreting is also available) TJC provides language interpreting services to support events such as business meetings, conferences, legal/court/arbitration/litigation, and other online business interactions in the industry.

Participants can communicate via video or voice calls using computers, 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 to facilitate smooth communication between all parties. They also provide relay interpreting.

Telephone interpreting Dutch arbitration

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 helpful for clients who cannot travel to their counterparts’ countries but still wish to hold business discussions or communicate progress updates. At TJC Global, we are pleased to provide professionally qualified interpreters in almost any selected language combination.

Simultaneous & Consecutive interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting

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

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

The interpreters listen to the speaker’s message using headsets and repeat it immediately (practically “simultaneously”) in the target language to benefit relevant audience members. They also provide relay interpreting, which is helpful if the speakers give presentations in several languages.

Consecutive interpreting

Consecutive interpreting (also available with Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)) is the most common type. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, legal and technical meetings, medical or court hearings, or on-site inspections or audits. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and later delivers the meaning in the target language.

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.
