5. About Depositions

Commonly used in the law of the United States and Canada, depositions, also known in some states as Examinations Before Trials, are out-of court oral testimonies made by witnesses as a means of gathering information for later use in court or as part of the litigation discovery process. During the deposition, the witness/witnesses are asked questions by the litigators (attorneys) which they must answer under oath. No judge is present and the court is not involved in this process. The witness(es)' testimony is recorded by either a stenographer or electronic recording device and may be called upon in court. 

When a witness does not speak English as their first language, interpreters are required to bridge any communication difficultues. Given the vital importance of depositions in the litigation process, interpreters used in depositions must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol. They must have a thorough knowledge of "legalese" and any relevant industry terminology, as well as a thorough grasp of the nuances and idiosyncracies of both languages as questions are often challenging and/or subtle. Due to the recent increase in non-English speaking witnesses, highly-skilled deposition interpreters are now even more in demand. TJC can guarantee deposition interpreters of the highest calibre, with many years experience in this type of work and the competence to ensure clarity, precision and utmost discretion. 


6. About Depositions in Japan

Depositions differ greatly from country to country and in Japan, the process of an international deposition relies upon inter-government agreements, which often necessitate the use of interpreters. 

The US-Japan agreement states depositions can only take place at the US Embassy in Tokyo or the Consulate in Osaka. Japanese depositions are regulated by strict rules and restrictions regarding foreign lawyers and witnesses. Thus, there are multiple aspects of the deposition process in which language barriers may arise either in Japan or regarding Japanese deponents or parties, for which interpreters are required.
