“Total trade in goods and services (exports plus imports) between the UK and Japan was £26.8 billion in the four quarters to the end of Q3 2022, an increase of 8.0% or £2.0 billion from the four quarters to the end of Q3 2021.” – Department for International Trade
The latest DIT figures reflect a supersized surge in business with Japan. And unsurprisingly, British businesses are looking for effective ways to circumnavigate any language barriers.
Who can blame them? The land of the rising sun represents rich pickings for UK-based businesses in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, food and drink, financial services, tourism and media, to name but a few of the sectors forging ahead.
The thing is, it’s naïve to assume that your written, spoken and other digital communications with your Japanese prospects will be conducted in English.
It’s true that many Japanese people speak highly proficient English as a second language. But they often aren’t as at ease with it as your clients in many European countries.
So, it’s wise to have this surefire trio of Japanese translation and interpretation tricks up your sleeve as minimum.
1 Inspiring Suite of Factsheets
It might be preferable to enlist Japanese translation for your collateral. But it’s not always practicable and / or affordable. Instead, how about a bespoke set of key pdf’s? What better way to get your message across and make a great impression than condensing your fundamental facts and figures in to one-page perfectly translated explainers?
2 Clever Partial Website Translation
It’s a similar scenario with websites. You can save time and expense by having powerhouse Japanese translation of your pre-selected main pages, rather than the whole lot.
3 Dealmaking Interpretation
Even if your Japanese prospects have a decent grasp of English, having a professional interpreter on hand at the most important meetings can be the ‘deal or no deal’ difference.
At Accutranslate, we’re ready, willing and able to help you realise your business ambitions, with Japanese translation and interpreting services that are second to none. Get in touch to tap in to our expert advice.
