We provide polite, trustworthy interpreters who deliver accurate, high quality service.

Simultaneous
interpreting

This is the interpretation method in which the speaker’s statements are translated in real time.
Use of simultaneous interpreting equipment is a prerequisite.
Much information can be communicated in a short amount of time.

Simultaneous interpreting requires considerable mental concentration.
The maximum time that one interpreter can continue in this mode is 15 to 20 minutes, so a minimum of two interpreters needs to be arranged.
This method is often used for international conferences at large venues, but special plans for small venues can also be arranged for customers who wish to communicate in a time-efficient manner to a smaller group of people.

Consecutive
interpreting

This is the interpretation method in which the speaker’s statements are noted down and translated several sentences at a time.

It does not require special equipment as in the case of simultaneous interpreting; the interpreter merely needs to be present.
However, it takes roughly twice as long as simultaneous interpreting.
In other words, the speaker can only say half as much in a given amount of time as with simultaneous interpreting.
This method is generally used for business meetings, interviews, and the like.

Whispered
interpreting

This method is used for meetings, etc., where only a few people require interpreting.
It is called whispered interpreting because the interpreter speaks in a low voice in close proximity to one or two listeners.

This is the method often seen on TV programs featuring foreign guests with interpreters translating in a low voice from behind.
Whispered interpreting is basically the same as simultaneous interpreting, requiring a comparable level of mental concentration.
Even if it is interspersed with consecutive interpreting of the speaker’s statements, about one hour is the limit for one interpreter.
In the case of continuous whispered interpreting as well as simultaneous interpreting, the interpreters need to take turns roughly every 20 minutes, so it is necessary to arrange for at least two interpreters.

    Delivery of interpretation equipment will also be proposed if needed.

    of the customer's staff

    The role to be played by interpreters is extremely important in any situation.

    KYT delivers high quality interpretation service by choosing the most suitable interpreter for the occasion.

    coordinators who
    understand the customer

    KYT’s coordinators always have their “antennas” tuned to the clients’ situation, in an effort to fully understand their needs.
    With solid background knowledge, they support the customer by coordinating all necessary aspects from the planning stage up to delivery of interpretation service.
