The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985

Japanese Arbitration Translation Services

It is crucial that information during arbitration is conveyed clearly and concisely across language divides: translators are frequently called upon to eliminate any communication difficulties prior to the case's beginning, for example in the translation of statements, and in such cases clarity, precision and sensitivity are of utmost importance. Arbitral awards act in the same way as final judgements and often, the very enforcement of these awards is bound up in international treaties and clauses, again, requiring translators where there is no common language between parties.  Arbitration translation is a fundamental part of The Japanese Connection’s legal translation services.

With over 20 years’ experience and a large network of translators with legal expertise and an in-depth knowledge of arbitration, we can ensure an efficient and accurate Japanese translation service for all your arbitration requirements.


About Arbitration in Japan

Disputes requiring out-of-court solutions occur regularly and the utilisation of ‘arbitrators’ is common to resolve civil and commercial matters in both domestic and international capacities. In light of the changes made in recent years to the Japanese judicial system, Japan has amended its regulations regarding arbitration. Although Japanese jurisdiction has always favoured arbitration as an alternative to court proceedings, The Arbitration Act (enforced in 2011) applies to tribunals that have broader, multi-national interests. This amendment indicates the increasingly global nature of arbitration.

EU law

Common law

Commercial Disputes

Court Proceedings
