The Japanese Language Center provides fast and accurate translation of documents to and from Japanese and English.  We guarantee 100% satisfaction of our translations. If our translation is not what you expect, we will listen to your comments and rework the translation, if needed, at no expense.  Our translations are guaranteed to be accurate.

We match your document with a translator with proven expertise in the subject area.   Every translation is proofread by a native Japanese translator and a native English translator to assure accuracy and language fluidity in your translated document. 

Many translation companies use a software of translation but we provide Human Translations.  Japanese language is one of most difficult languages and there is not any Japanese translation software that is able to convert the true meaning of a phrase to or from Japanese and English.  Our translating is not word replacement but consisting of a thorough understanding of the source language and conveying meaning to the target language.  Government agencies generally do not accept machine translations as true translations due to the inherent problems with them.  If you need a truly accurate translation, you had better not settle for anything less than our translation.



We offer a wide range of translation services of :

  • Information Technologies

  • Web Sites and Software (including testing)
  • Academic Diplomas and Transcripts
  • Technical Papers and Journals
  • On-Demand Translations of Custom Documents
  • Government Documents
  • USCIS (formerly known as the INS) Documents e.g. marriage and birth documents

    Getting a Green Card, applying for citizenship, establishing residency, extending a Visa, applying for a Visa, etc. are all tasks that can be fairly complex, requiring filling out a number of forms and requiring accurate translation of foreign documents.  This is the disclaimer on almost all forms the USCIS / INS provides--"All documents which are in a foreign language, must be submitted by translation in English. The translator must certify that s/he is competent to translate and that the translation is accurate."   Accurate translations are required by the agency, and any machine translation or self-made translation will be rejected, resulting in either a disapproved case or a greatly delayed approval of your petition. Avoid the embarrassing and very avoidable and unpleasant disapproval of your case by obtaining a professional translation of all your documents by Japanese Language Center.  We can help you by providing accurate, notarized translations of any documents. Having extensive experience in dealing with these and other US government agencies we know exactly what type of full and formatted translation is needed.

    • Birth Certificate
    • Adoption decree
    • Passport
    • Marriage Certificate
    • Financial Statements
    • Employment letters
    • Letters of reference
    • Diplomas / School Records
    • Foreign government documents
