Lafferty Translation, LLC is a boutique translation firm that focuses exclusively on legal document translation from Japanese into English. We translate contracts, court documents, and a plethora of other legal materials written in Japanese and governed by Japanese law or drafted for cross-border business in Japan.

Our mission is simple: to accelerate your deal. The Japanese-into-English language combination is one of the trickiest on the planet. Vague, meandering, and passively written translations are a burden. They tax decision makers’ time, requiring them to explain minutiae to uncomfortable clients. Lafferty Translation provides exceptionally clear legal prose tailored to meet your objectives.

Founder and president Bill Lafferty leads all translation projects: translating, using translation memory, managing data security, and overseeing quality assurance. Lafferty Translation teams up with a small number of highly skilled legal translators to meet high-volume needs.
