Looking for an interpreter?

The interpreter’s role extends far beyond simply converting one language to another. An effective interpreter has to be able to read between the lines, express enthusiasm in meetings, and assist in developing a trusting relationship between two parties. I help my clients to realize success in their business meetings by ensuring smooth communication.

You can communicate with me directly.

Clients can contact me directly, making the process faster, and avoiding any possible misunderstandings.

通訳
Conference interpreting/ business interpreting

Based on client’s needs, I provide consecutive and/or simultaneous interpreting for: business meetings, seminars, presentations, press interviews, receptions, and parties.

通訳のワンストップサービス
One-stop shop for your language needs

From making a request to the actual meeting day, and arranging the necessary equipment, I am your one-stop shop. (*We will consult based on your needs.)

I will make sure that my client can focus on the business itself without worrying too much about communication.

When the scale of your needs calls for multiple interpreters to be arranged, I will work with my interpreter partners, forming a team for you.

The languages I support are English and Japanese.

Given the information that a client provides me with in advance, I will prepare by studying the material itself and identifying the main focus, while also recognizing any potential accent the speaker may have.

I excel at interpreting for scenarios such as business meetings and negotiations where a client wants to build a trusting relationship with their counterpart.

I am experienced in interpreting in various fields such as IT, medical, gastronomy, cosmetics, advertising, and ISO and other types of audits/ surveys.
