    Abstract:
    The present research project aims to investigate the profession of conference interpreting in Japan. The first section furnishes a summary of the Japanese language and also studies how the geography of Japan reshapes Japan’s monolingual and monocultural landscape. The research project also reveals the history of interpreting, educational institutions related to conference interpreter training, and current trends in the interpreting profession, along with associations and organizations of conference interpreters in Japan. Moreover, the research conducted for this project unveils the current situation of interpreting in Japan and reviews whether it is a fully established profession as it is in the European Union—whose institutions have one of the most comprehensive interpreting services in the world (Introduction to Interpretation 2019). Ultimately, the research project examines universities, prevailing trends, and advancements associated with conference interpreting and both their positive and negative impacts on the profession itself.
