I would like to know what is the average rate for interpreter / translator for business meetings in Japan? Interpretation between Japanese and English, preference for native Japanese speakers.
2nd question, culturally do Japanese business people (SME or MNC) prefer male or female interpreters? Few of my Japanese business associates has recommended that I look for female interpreters as they are seen as more polite and presentable as compared to male interpreters, any comments on this?
I am looking for a freelance interpreter who can accompany me on business meetings. I visit Tokyo once a month and would probably have 2-3 meetings per trip that require verbal translations. Some of these business meetings may extend into lunch and dinners.
