Japan and the metal industry 

Japan has a long history in the metal industry and metalsmithing. Japan’s major exports include steel, iron and copper; it is the second larger steel producer in the world. Aptly, the automotive industry - one of Japan’s main manufacturing pursuits – is also the largest consumer of steel. Japan also imports many precious metals, such as platinum, for use in the manufacture of jewellery as it lacks natural reserves of such metals.

Often the mining and metal industries go hand in hand and cooperation between the two parties is very important. The metal industry is worldwide in scale and to enable those in the industry to contact suppliers and clients often means the use of interpretation and translation language services, both to and from Japanese.

Our Japanese language metal industry interpreting service covers areas such as:

Bulk-forming processes


Sheet-forming processes



Thermal spraying

Extraction of precious metals


Power metallurgy
