Other documents Ask us

Our certified translations are accepted by Japanese government agencies (e.g. municipal offices) without any problems.

However, in some cases, notarized translation may be required for overseas procedures (e.g., obtaining documents necessary for marriage with a Japanese partner).

"Apostilled translation "

It is rare that a notarized translation is required for visa application. A certified translation prepared by us is enough.

However, for "big events" such as marriage, establishment of a company, purchase of real estate, etc., and for "small events" such as enrollment in school, opening a bank account, finding a job, signing a lease, etc.,
apostilled official documents are often required.

For these reasons, we offer a special plan that is both economically and practically "safe".
