About Japanese

Spoken by around 125 million people, Japanese is the predominant language of Japan and a member of the Japonic language family. Traditionally unknown to speakers of other languages (perhaps due to the dramatic difference in structure, sound and alphabet to the main European languages) Japanese has now become an important business language and is widely studied by foreigners. In 2012 alone, 4 million people were learning Japanese. This surge of interest is largely due to the Japanese economic boom in the 80s; its status as a technology/engineering giant, as well as to mass global interest in Japanese culture such as 'Manga' and 'Anime'.

Although they may appear similar to non-speakers, Chinese and Japanese have no genealogical relationship. Nonetheless, Japanese script makes use of thousands of Chinese characters called 'Kanji', and has done so for centuries. 'Kanji' is just one of three alphabets used in Japanese, the others being 'Hiragana' and 'Katakana' (with the Latin script alphabet or 'Romaji' used for foreign terms). Hiragana is used for the purely Japanese alphabet, while Katakana, which looks to the untrained eye simpler than both Hiragana and Kanji, is a series of characters which represent individual Japanese phonemes or sounds. It is often used to transcribe foreign words and in the past, was used as shorthand for the more complex 'Kanji'. 

Japanese is spoken by around 99% of the Japanese population. Dialects and variations, such as the Rkyukyan languages, including Kunigami, Okinawan and Amami, are spoken by some in Okinawa, but few children now learn these. Most schools instead teach Japanese and English to children.

Like any other nation, Japan has its own business etiquette. See our Doing Business in Japan Page to find out more.

What form/s of interpretation do TJC Global's Japanese interpreters provide?

Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership.  They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes. 

Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.

Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere. 


Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings.

The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue. 


Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing.

The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
