Five Deadly Mistakes You Must Avoid When Offering Your Courses in Japan

  • Having your untrained English-speaking Japanese colleagues to interpret to save money.
  • Booking professional linguistics oriented interpreters through professional agents but not briefing them about your areas well in advance.
  • Asking for simultaneous interpretation to save time.
  • Changing interpreters on two-three hour shifts as they easily get exhausted.
  • Paying interpreters by the hour.

Then, Don't You Feel Frustrated That...?


  • audience look dissatisfied with some technical terms lost in garbled interpretation
  • speakers look exhausted after working with expressionless interpreters 
  • you have to have a time keeper to check working hours of interpreters
  • you cannot utilize course recordings partly due to interpretation quality
  • you are always searching for better interpreters
  • unsatisfactory interpretation is affecting your course reputation

The Reasons Why You Should Try My Interpretation

  • Audience can easily share the landscape in the speaker's mind.
    I never fail to follow the speaker's train of thoughts as I am trained both in humanities and sciences. 

  • Audience feel relieved that no technical term is missed.
    I keep updating my vocabulary making the most of technical glossaries, information on the web and real human contacts.

  • Audience feel comforted with the harmony of speaker's voice and mine. 
    My voice is trained and rich with bone resonance. I know how to speak in canon witt the speaker, which makes so much difference to audience ear. The bone vibration is energizing and I can interpret for 8 hours per day for 5 days without feeling tired at all. 

  • Audience will come back to your courses expecting good interpretation.

  • You can record courses and create booklets and DVDs in Japanese for PR and sales.

  • You can stop searching for interpreters.

  • I will be your concierge.  
    I am happy to translate course materials in advance, book venues, transportation, accommodation etc for you.
