Welcome: いらっしゃいませ!

BJ Translations Ltd is a company based in Kent, UK which has been offering high quality language services for three decades to clients throughout Europe, North America and the Far East. Our focus has traditionally been on the professional translation, typesetting (DTP) and interpreting of oriental languages — particularly Japanese, as our director is a qualified Japanese translator accredited by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting — but we are willing to discuss any requirements you may have. We offer the advantages of a small organization, such as individual attention, affordable prices and a fast turnaround, while being able to call on the services of teams of personally vetted translators or interpreters for larger assignments. Our expert linguists are frequently asked to supply certified translations or to work on high profile legal and financial cases.
