Work Processes

Work Process for Translation Services

STEP1 Consultation Free trial translation

The first step is to inquire with JTC using the Inquiry in English form, by e-mail, or by telephone.
A representative will ask you about the desired language, purpose of the translation, volume (number of words/characters), deadline, receipt of original, delivery format, and other matters. We will also accept requests for layout changes, HTML editing, artwork editing, and other forms of editing, so please notify the representative if you will require any of these services.

  • We also offer a free translation trial (partial translation) service.
    Feel free to ask for a trial if you are anxious as a first-time customer or requesting a highly specialized translation.
Estimates and Consultation
STEP2 Preparation of estimate

We will prepare an estimate based on your inquiry. We can submit the estimate on the same day if you are in a hurry. If you wish, your JTC representative will visit you to discuss the estimate.

STEP3 Receipt of original

We will ask you to send your original to be translated by e-mail, a file transfer service, or postal mail, or other means.

STEP4 Translation

We will select a translator who is suitably qualified to handle your translation from the plentiful human resources available to us. We will complete the translation accurately, quickly, and in accordance with the JTC QC Standards.

STEP5 Proofreading

We will provide rigorous in-house proofreading with a teamwork-based approach that brings together Japanese and native-speaker staff.

STEP6 Delivery

We will deliver the finished translation in the format you requested and by the deadline you specified.
Segmented and partial deliveries are also available upon request. Please ask if your schedule requires segmented or partial delivery.
If, after delivery, you have any requests for corrections, we will immediately feed them back to the translator.
