Certified Translation Services Japan: Translation of personal legal documents & your privacy

Monday, October 17th, 2016

It’s natural to be concerned about your privacy when submitting personal legal documents to a translation company, any third party for that matter.

Forget about the data breaches, data leaks and what-not that are the staple of daily news bulletins – Thanks to the efforts of certain individuals we know that NOTHING is safe from national intelligence agencies’ snooping programs that can supposedly access almost any data on the Internet and internet connected devices, regardless of encryption technologies and other measures employed. This is true whether your personal documents are on file at your local municipal office or with your Japanese translation company.

So, framed in this context, you’ll want to use certified translation services Japan that has the proper measures in place to prevent additional un-authorized data access.

What kind of measures should you expect? Certified Japanese English translation confidentiality & security at a bare minimum:

  • Confidentiality Policy

Does the company have a legally binding industry standard confidentiality agreement for every project that all certified Japanese translators must agree to? Do you have the option of a written non-disclosure agreement (NDA)?

  • Security Policy

Does the company have restricted physical access to data storage facilities & equipment? Are the proper software security measures such as firewalls, antivirus, SSL encryption and security monitoring software in place? Is there a regime for the implementation, enforcement and continuous updating and monitoring of policies and procedures?

Cutting out the technical jargon, you’re looking for a professional translation company with a robust project management system to ensure “need-to-know only” access, where personal legal documents are locked down with a corporate grade security system.

If that doesn’t give you peace of mind, how about a company that provides you a Complete Satisfaction or 100% Money Back Guarantee?
