Depositions are necessary to many cases, especially in the USA and are utilised in multiple branches of law; from civil to criminal to intellectual property law.

About Deposition 

A deposition is the oral questioning and recorded testimony of a witness outside of court, in which litigants obtain information for the pending trial and future litigation proceedings.

Depositions differ greatly from country to country and in Japan, the process of an international deposition relies upon inter-government agreements, which often necessitate the use of interpreters.  The US-Japan agreement states depositions can only take place at the US Embassy in Tokyo or the Consulate in Osaka. Japanese depositions are regulated by strict rules and restrictions regarding foreign lawyers and witnesses. Thus, there are multiple aspects of the deposition process in which language barriers may arise either in Japan or regarding Japanese deponents or parties, for which translators are required.

Our Japanese language deposition translation service covers areas such as:


Civil procedure

Examination for Discovery

Written statements & witness reports

Witness testimony

Attorneys and Litigation Support
