Japanese Technical/Industrial Translation
In a space filled with many translation providers claiming to be able to handle any language and any subject matter, Kirameki is rather unusual, in that we consciously limit our scope to the Japanese-English language pair and to the fields in which we can guarantee high quality. For example, we are not your best choice for translation of biomedical, pharmaceutical, or chemical subject matter. But that leaves a large number of fields in which we are confident of our translation quality and have a track record demonstrating that this confidence is not misplaced.
Coming from an engineering background, and with ample real-world industry and research experience, the founder of Kirameki Translations feels strongly that a "jack of all translations" translation broker is not the best choice for clients looking for high-quality translations of complex subject matter.
Since starting to provide high-quality technical translations in decades ago, we have adhered to the concept of providing quality translations done by translators who understand the technology they are translating, something that is clearly not a given in the translation industry, which is highly populated by translators with an interest and some ability with foreign languages but not necessarily the background to understand technology to be translated.
Documents We Handle
While we can handle virtually any type of document in fields that are within our range of competence and experience, just a few of the types of documents we handle are as follows.

The Things We Commit Never to Do Set Apart from the Crowd
Naturally, as a translation provider, we are committed to providing you with the highest possible quality. But there are a number of things that we promise we will not be doing when you issue an order for translation. These things distinguish us from the mass-production translation brokers that seem committed to volume over quality.
