Japanese translation service

Effective translation is much more than simply changing text from one language into another.

It is important that the Japanese translator or English translator has a true understanding of what the original writer means. The translator needs to be able to translate the words from the source language, and also more importantly, be able to change it into the most natural language through having a comprehensive understanding of the text. Other factors such as the business and cultural environment can determine what is really meant between the lines and the translator needs to work “outside the square” to deliver a translation of superior quality.

For each project the team at Rikai Associates analyses the requirements and customises a process to best meet your specific needs. Direct and clear communication with the client is important to understand requirements and specific objectives completely.

English rewriting and proofreading

Our native English consultants will check and proofread the documents for you to ensure the English is professional and perfect. This service has become one of our particular strengths due to a high demand for services in this area.
