In order to support overseas research projects, Kitagawa GmbH, based in Frankfurt, Germany, provides all services as detailed on this page below, such as: appointments & scheduling, the provision of accompanying interpreters, and the creation of meeting minutes.

Service details:


Interpretation services for international conferences and overseas research projects, meetings, and negotiations:

We can provide experienced local interpreters for overseas international conferences, research projects, meetings, and negotiations. The use of local interpreters can reduce costs, as all the expenses such as interpreter accommodations, air travel, daily expenses, and remuneration for travel time from Japan to arrival at the site, etc., will have to be provided for, in addition to the actual interpreting fees, if an interpreter is brought in from Japan. Kitagawa GmbH can introduce highly experienced interpreters (local languages/English to/from Japanese) that can meet customer needs by utilizing a global network deployed in more than 50 countries around the world.


Agency services for obtaining overseas Appointments:

In order to support overseas research projects, we can act as an agent and can set up meetings for desired hearings/site visitations. We have many experiences in arranging such Appointments.


Preparation of meeting minutes:

When conducting overseas research projects independently, recording notes regarding the contents of hearings/meetings is also an important task. We can provide staff that can accompany your party at overseas meetings and hearings and that can summarize the contents of discussions in minutes and summary reports (for Japanese to/from English).


Conducting interviews:

We can set up meetings with overseas experts and desired interview partners, conduct interviews based on customer questionnaires, and summarize the contents via a report (for Japanese to/from English; contact us for other languages.)
