The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985

Japanese Food & Drink Industry Translation Service

The food and drink industry has always been, since the beginnings of international trade systems, a world-wide industry.  

Food producers and wineries now operate on a global scale, often calling upon the services of linguistic experts such as interpreters and translators in order to accurately understand and comply with, for example, international distribution laws, or to effectively liaise with international clients.

The Japanese Connection, with twenty-five years of experience, can provide high-quality Japanese language translators who are highly skilled and experienced in food and drink-related services and can provide interpreting and translation services to enhance communication between businesses and retailers.

They understand technical terminology, procedures and complicated concepts related to this area and often have a background or qualification suited to the food and drink industry.


Food in Japan

Japanese food is renowned for its presentation, the freshness of its ingredients, and for its long-reaching history. The food of Japan is ingrained into the culture and history of the country, and is extensive, diverse, and delicious. Although it is, perhaps, rice which immediately comes to mind when we imagine Japanese cuisine, exports of traditional Japanese foods and drinks such as noodles, dumplings (gyoza), sushi and sake (Japanese rice wine) have risen dramatically over the years, growing in popularity in western countries such as the US and the UK.
