Message from the Directors

Thank you for taking the time to visit Language Resources’ web site.

Language Resources is a group of professional language trainers, teacher-trainers, translators, interpreters and copyeditors with advanced qualifications and a high degree of professional expertise.

Our company was originally established at the request of one of Japan’s major steel companies to help develop needs-based language training for engineers, technicians, administrators, sales staff etc. involved in international technology-transfer projects, and for those needing training in English skills for their future international business. Our reputation and the LR brand have become synonymous with quality in language services and consequently we are proud to work with a wide range of companies, from SMEs to multinational enterprises, research institutions and government agencies, as well as private individuals.

As a relatively small company, we offer a more personalized, and highly-professional choice for Clients who need both quality and results-oriented training – especially at times when training, or translation, budgets may be limited.

In the field of English Language Training (ELT), our company offers:

  • over 30 years’ experience specializing in training Japanese company employees in English for Business, Science and Technology
  • a team of the most qualified and experienced ELT trainers in Japan, who themselves are recruited and supervised by highly-qualified and experienced ELT professionals so as to maintain the highest standards
  • a close working relationship with the Client to provide tailor-made courses to meet the Client’s specific immediate or long-term language needs
  • training in virtually any major city in Japan through our network of professional ELT specialists, with both group and one-to-one courses conveniently held at the Client’s premises
  • professional advice to Clients starting a language training program or upgrading an existing one

We are also proud to be the only organization in Japan approved as a teacher training centre for the internationally renowned Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (Cambridge CELTA).

In the field of Translation and Interpreting, our company offers:

  • over 30 years’ experience in Japanese ↔ English translation of Business, Scientific and Technical documents
  • a team of translators, each with many years of experience in their specialized fields, who work with post-translation editors/checkers to produce faithful, accurate translations of a wide variety of documents
  • consecutive and simultaneous interpreters available for assignments all over Japan.

We look forward to being of service to your company.
