Translation, interpreting and related services

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 the world.

Contact us if you're worried about things getting lost in translation.

Our focus has traditionally been on the professional translation, typesetting (DTP) and interpreting of East Asian languages — particularly Japanese — but we're 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, but can use 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.
