Sept. 14, 2018
The BCCJ is delighted to welcome YUZEN Translation LLC on becoming an Entrepreneur Member!
We are a specialist translation company based in the centre of Tokyo. We have completed a number of successful projects for the energy, environment, and shipping industry together with a number of localization and bespoke projects in other fields. We pride ourselves on being able to work very closely with our clients from start to finish, and beyond, to ensure that expectations are exceeded.
Our translators are bilingual and all possess a sound knowledge of translating techniques and local knowledge to ensure that what is intended in the source text is accurately transcribed to the target text in a natural way.
YUZEN Translation is celebrating its third year in business. The name of our business derives from the Japanese yuzen to suru, which means that our clients can trust in us to take care of their translation needs; freeing them up to run other aspects of their businesses.
We are relatively small and agile and can offer a very personal and tailored service. Please feel more than welcome to contact us for a quote and discuss how we can assist you with your translating needs.
