Our Services

From International Conferences to Escort Interpreting
Whether its international conferences, symposiums, seminars, new product launches, press conferences, business negotiations, business or interoffice meetings, our experienced translators are here to assist you based on your needs in order to make global communication possible.

Simultaneous Interpreting
Simultaneous interpreting is where interpretation is rendered almost at the same time the speaker is speaking. This requires advanced interpretation skills, experience, and concentration. This is why two or three interpreters are assigned to take turns interpreting in roughly 15-minute intervals. Typically, two interpreters are assigned for half-day business meetings and seminars.

Simultaneous Interpreting in Multiple Languages
This service – in which interpreting is done in three or more languages – is used for example in international conferences and symposiums.

Consecutive Interpreting
This interpreting method is where the interpreter interprets what the speaker has said when the speaker stops speaking, using about the same time to interpret that the speaker used. For example, if the speaker takes one hour to deliver a presentation, the time needed for interpreting will also be about one hour, which means two hours total. This method is suitable when time constraints are not an issue.

Whispering
Whispering is where the interpreter sits behind or next to the person needing interpreting services and interprets simultaneously what is being said by whispering into that person’s ear. For example, in a company meeting whose intended audience is Japanese employees, if a guest from another country attends this type of service is often used. Based on the circumstances, using portable interpreting devices can also be effective.

Escort Interpreting
This type of interpreting is used for courtesy visits, company inspections, factory tours, etc. where an interpreter accompanies the person needing interpreting services to the place they are visiting. Consecutive interpreting or whispering is the method used when escorting.
