Japanese Fashion, Textile and Clothing Interpreting

Fashion retail is a global industry that transcends language and cultural boundaries.

With new foreign markets emerging and as fashion becomes an integral part of people’s lives, effective and fluent communication between companies of different nationalities is crucial.

Businesses often require the services of translators and interpreters in order to best meet the demands of international clients and expand globally.

At The Japanese Connection, we can provide Japanese translation and interpreting services for any fashion and textiles industry-related enquiries, such as assistance at international conferences, business meetings and global PR events.

Japan and fashion 

The textiles industry is primarily concerned with the production of yarn and cloth, and the subsequent design or manufacture of clothing and their distribution. The raw material may be natural, or synthetic using products of the chemical industry. The textile and clothing industry is concerned with a large amount of key issues, such as the logistical arrangements involved in the manufacture of raw materials such as cotton and wool, and the ethical issues and concerns related to the production methods of textiles businesses and fashion houses. In Japan, there is a large industry for textiles and fashion, with traditional kimonos and yukatas appearing alongside Western fashions and modern Japanese fashion styles such as Harajuku, Lolita and Ganguro.
