[Addressed to a US attorney from a Japanese client, regarding a maritime accident resulting in casualty]

“…Mr. Field’s translation was really great and wonderful, we can only marvel at his skill.”


Hi, how are you?
I hope this email finds you well.
I wanted to send you a thank you note immediately after I got back to NYC but I had to work on several assignments and was out of town. I finally had a moment to sit down and write this email.

Thank you again for the opportunity to work with you.

With no break and unexpected demands, it was a bit tough assignment but it was such a blessing to be able to listen to your Japanese to English interpretation, especially for the closing session. It was absolutely stunning!!

I made a rough translation of the document provided by H., and was hoping to get your native check to refine it but oh that was beautiful!! How I wished I could have recorded your beautiful work. Thank you for the inspiration. Just hearing your interpretation was worth taking that assignment.

“Thank you so much for providing your quality interpreting service to
us today. I sensed that both presenters spoke fast and they didn’t pause between slides for interpreters to catch up. However, once again I was able to witness your quality of work.


Kanagawa Prefecture Governor Yuji Kuroiwa  | 神奈川県知事黒岩祐治

(translated from Japanese)
[From the Governor’s staff official]
Dear Chris,

“Thank you for your support. And thank you very much for interpreting during Governor Kuroiwa’s visit to Boston. We appreciated your help, starting with the pre-event coordination. Your interpreting was easy to understand and was highly praised – I think the fact that you had been a friend of the Governor’s since your days at Fuji TV made him feel at ease as he faced the various events.

[神奈川県の 高官より]

「Chris様 お世話になっております。 黒岩知事のボストン訪問では、通訳をいただき誠にありがとうございました。 事前調整からご協力をいただき、大変感謝しております。Chrisさんの通訳はわかりやすく大変好評でしたし、知事のフジテレビ時代からのご友人ということで、知事も安心して行事に臨むことができたのではないかと思います。」
