Is the Japanese translator or translating company of certified translation listed on the Statement of Certification?

What is a Statement of Certification, anyway?

That’s the certificate issued by the translating entity that makes a translation certified. If certified Japanese English translation is what you require, ensure the translating entity is able and willing to issue that certificate otherwise official & governmental organizations will not accept your application.

Ok, now that is out of the way, let’s get back to the question: Who’s listed on the Statement of Certification?

Official & governmental organizations require that the translating entity be listed on the Statement of Certification. This means that if the translation is handled by a freelance translator, then as the translating entity that person’s name must be listed on the Certification. On the hand, though, if the translation is done by a professional Japanese translation service company, then as the translating entity the company must be listed on the Statement of Certification.

In other words, the long and short of it all is…either will do.

(Many folk mistakenly assume that “translator” means a person, which is not the case at all. Also, from a practical perspective, professional translation companies use a minimum of 3 professional translators in different roles (translation, proof-checking and editing) on a certified Japanese translation; thus, it is impractical to list all the translators.)
