• About us

Welcome

Founded by Kaori and James Myatt, Word Connection is based in Bassussarry, France.

We have built a team of skilled and dedicated linguists who offer specialist knowledge of diverse fields including finance and banking, manufacturing, gaming and the law.
They are supported by the latest technology, a network of specialists and our partnerships with leading language providers.
From our offices in France and Japan, we support language service providers, corporations, governments and small businesses by providing professional, proactive and creative language services.
We are also proud to offer training for graduate translators and we have established a student mentoring programme in partnership with the University of East Anglia in the UK.

Word Connection’s outstanding Japanese language services have garnered an impressive reputation.
But our team, professional network and partnerships now enable us to provide translations into almost any language.
