Interpretation Services

More than 200 experienced interpreters with various specialties and skills are registered with JAC, and we can select a translator that best suits your needs.

All sorts of occasions

We can select and dispatch an interpreter or interpreters according to the occasion: e.g. business negotiation, tele-conference, IR meeting, IR road show, conference and symposium (on-stage and booth), seminar, trade fair, interview, focus group, assistance for visitors, assistance in hospital visits.

All styles of interpretation

Our interpreters have varied levels of skills from consecutive (interpreting during pauses in the original speech), whispering (interpreting simultaneously on a one-on-one basis) and conference interpretation (interpreting simultaneously usually in a booth for large audience). We can select the most suitable for the assignment.
