  Central Translation Services was first established as a legal translation office with a focus on business support. Our Managing Director has a background in law researching Hague Treaty for international children’s rights and studying intellectual property law, and one of our first team is a Spanish lawyer who excels in contract writing and studied law in both Spain and Japan. Long before moving into our current main office, our mission was to support international business owners in Japan to manage their businesses smoothly and in reverse assist Japanese companies expand into international market safely. 


  With advancements in technology, we can establish connections regardless of distance. Artificial intelligence’s influence on business processes have paved the way for globalization, promoting language and data as vital tools for conflict resolution, exploring new opportunities, and ultimately bettering our lives. As opposed to direct word-to-word translations and interpretations, we understand the cultural differences and sensitivity of business environments. Information filtered through us will be rendered with subtle adjustment when necessary, depending on situations deemed appropriate for each case.
