Contract translation

Providing ready-to-use contract translations based on our experience and achievements

As companies increase their overseas transactions, they need more and more contract translations. Contract translations are different from ordinary documents--they require an understanding of Japanese law and the perspectives and culture of the target country to create a document that fully conveys the intended meaning without omissions.

We assign translators who specialize in the contract's particular field to provide high-quality contract translations. We have a proven translation record of legal documents between various domestic and overseas companies as well as in-house legal documents, focusing on major foreign-affiliated consulting firms.

What is contract translation?

Contract translations translate agreements into multiple languages. These agreements include subcontracting and nondisclosure agreements, employment contracts, and confidentiality agreements between companies and employees.
Each country has different languages, cultures, customs, and laws. Contract translation requires advanced translation techniques to ensure that there are no errors in content.

Asian countries like Japan also have a high-context culture with many abstract expressions, while countries in Europe and the Americas have a low-context culture with clear and unambiguous grammar. Contract translations play an important role in business situations and require careful coordination and elimination of ambiguity between the translation company and the customer.
