The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985

Japanese History Interpreting Services

History is a broad and diverse term which refers to events which took place in the past, as well as the discovery, collection, organization and presentation of these events in a number of different mediums, including historical texts and journals. The term ‘history’ is an umbrella term which includes in its span, most commonly, human history, but also cosmic, geologic and organic history.

The field of historical research is often concerned with historical texts and also new media such as sound recordings and motion pictures, which are often in multiple languages and dialects. To ensure good cross-linguistic communication, translators are often called upon to ensure nothing is lost in translation. With a strong network of high-quality translators and interpreters with native-level understanding of Japanese, as well as expertise in areas as diverse as historiography, anthropology, and archaeology, The Japanese Connection can accommodate all your translation and interpreting needs.
