The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985
Japanese Infrastructure Translation & Interpreting Services Worldwide
Japan has one of the most sophisticated infrastructures in the world; it is renowned for its super-efficient metropolitan transport system, and particularly its Shinkansen or bullet trains. The Japanese government invests heavily in infrastructure to ensure its cities keep up with advanced technologies and the growing numbers of tourists. Because of their expertise, Japanese companies are often involved in expansive infrastructure projects in other countries. The country recently announced it would be collaborating with China on 50 such projects.
It is a truism to say that cross-border infrastructure projects require smooth and efficient communication between the many businesses that are involved. Be it large-scale urban development, city transport networks, railways, airports, seaports, power plants, dams, renewable energy projects, The Japanese Connection's expert Japanese translators and interpreters have the professionalism, business knowledge and cultural expertise to help facilitate all range of multinational infrastructure projects.

Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes.
Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, 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. If a speech is delivered, 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 stall or elsewhere.
Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings.
The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue.
Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing.
The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
