The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985

Japanese Journalism Interpreting Services

File:Newspapers of Japan 20090831.jpgJournalism, or the investigation, analysis and reporting of local, national and global events and trends to a broad audience through such mediums as newspapers, magazines, television and radio forms a central part of most industrialised societies.

Over the decades, different genres of journalism have emerged, including broadcast journalism (as opposed to written journalism), investigative journalism, sensationalism, and Gonzo journalism.

The Japanese Connection’s experienced translators and interpreters can assist with interviews, reports, press conferences, or with any other linguistic needs you may have.

This ensures that all interpreting is not only accurate, but takes into account the nuance and idioms of both the source and the target languages; therefore no meaning is lost in translation.

Journalism in Japan

Journalism in Japan, especially in the newspapers, differs from UK and US journalism in that most articles of Japanese newspapers have no signature.

News reporters are educated to exclude personal opinion from their articles, aiming at complete objectivity.

Journalism can be both national and global; the disaster at Fukushima in 2011 was reported across the world, and often close translation and interpreting is required rapidly in order to relay events in real time to multiple countries and cultures in numerous languages other than Japanese.

Our journalism interpretation service covers areas such as:


Trade Publications

Foreign Correspondence


Investigative Journalism

International Press Conferences

Sports Journalism

Current Affairs Journalism

Science Journalism

Environmental Journalism

Fashion Journalism
