The interdisciplinary, international nature of astronomy requires the ability to communicate with experts from all over the world. 

The Japanese Connection is here to help. We are committed to supplying clients with exact interpreting services based on interpreters' experience and professionalism.

It is important that an interpreter understands technical terminology and procedures associated with astronomy.

Our Japanese language interpreters, besides being highly skilled and experienced, often have a background or qualification in astronomy or astrophysics and are able to assist with all aspects of this dynamic field, from communication with the press to international astronomical conferences.


Astronomy and Japan

In Japan, astronomy is a subject of general cultural interest. Many amateur astronomists have taken to the subject and some claim to have discovered unknown supernovae. Japanese astronomists are interested in star formation; interstellar matter; black holes; starbursts; proto-planetary disks among other things. Branches of astronomy include: Infrared, X-ray and Galactic Astronomy and it is strongly linked to Astrophysics, Cosmology and Physics. The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) contributes hugely to this global subject and possesses one of the most advanced pieces of equipment in the field: The Subaru Telescope.

A team of Japanese astronomers using The Subaru Telescope claimed recently that they had discovered the ‘oldest galaxy’ through it. Often, such discoveries are the product of international collaborations and indeed, Japan has recently agreed to share the use of its telescope with like-minded astronomers from multiple other nations.

Aerospace Technology
