Where to Find a High-quality Japanese Simultaneous Interpreter?

Table of Contents

A Japanese simultaneous interpreter is tasked with an important mission to be the linguistic and cultural bridge between Japanese and other languages. Interpreters seamlessly facilitate the accurate flow of information.

Sound like a daunting task? What does it take to be a professional Japanese simultaneous interpreter? Let’s delve into the world of Japanese simultaneous interpreting with Thao & Co.

The responsibility of a Japanese simultaneous interpreter

Stationed in a confined booth, Japanese simultaneous interpreters use a headset and a transceiver to listen and convert spoken words instantaneously from Japanese to the target language and the other way around.

Thanks to their refined interpreting skills and instantaneous information process ability, simultaneous Japanese interpreters ensure the converted message remains faithful to the original intent.

Japanese language employs three writing systems, namely Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Kanji are logographic characters, adapted from Chinese script, comprised of more than 2,000 characters. Therefore, mastering the usage of Kanji requires a profound understanding of the language.

Moreover, Japanese grammar is an intricate system with a plethora of rules and sentence structures. Japanese also has specific linguistic rules and communication styles with special idioms and expressions, so understanding and interpreting them correctly can pose a huge challenge. Idioms and special expressions usually have culture-specific meanings which necessitate a deep understanding of culture and context to precisely convey the message.

In sensitive or highly confidential events, Japanese simultaneous interpreters need to adhere to confidentiality policies. This helps protect your sensitive data from being leaked or misused.

Japanese simultaneous interpretation cost

When you need to hire a Japanese simultaneous interpreter, the cost varies depending on several factors. Let’s find out what are they and how they can influence the overall interpretation price with Thao & Co.

  1. The proficiency of interpreters: Particular requests on the proficiency of interpreters such as requirements for Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) certificates of level N2 or N1 typically raise the price.
  2. The scale of the event: For example, an international conference with many representatives from all over the world often requires a large team of reliable and skilled interpreters which in turn affects the price.
  3. Time and venue: if the event takes place in a difficult-to-access area or on a holiday, then probably the cost of hiring the interpreter will increase. Additionally, the longer the interpreting session, the more you have to budget for interpretation cost.
  4. The number of language pairs: If you intend to have Japanese translated into multiple other languages, the cost of the event may increase since this requires a team of multilingual interpreters.
