Civic Interpreter Service

Stuck at Home? No time to visit us? Need Help? Call the NIC on Trio-Phone at 052-581-6112

Why not make use of our Trio-Phone system? Trio-Phone makes a 3-way call possible.

If you need to ask a question to a civic service, such as a ward office, health center, or a tax office,  but can’t speak Japanese then call our Trio-Phone service and we’ll arrange a 3-way call between you, the service, and a NIC interpreter.

The Trio-Phone Service is available as below;

  • English: Tue. – Sun. 09:00 -19:00
  • Portuguese and Spanish: Tue. – Sun. 10:00-12:00, 13:00 – 17:00
  • Chinese: Tue. – Fri. 13:00 – 17:00, Sat. & Sun. 10:00-12:00, 13:00 – 17:00
  • Korean & Filipino: Thu., Sat. & Sun. 13:00 – 17:00

You can call the NIC Trio-Phone at 052-581-6112

 

Example Situation: Mrs A is at home with a 6-month old baby. Mrs. A has a few questions she would like to ask her local health center (Kita Ward Hokenjo) about the baby’s health check-up. It is a little difficult for Mrs. A to make to the health center in person, and she is not confident talking in Japanese on phone. Mrs. A calls the Nagoya International Center’s special Tori-hon phone line, explains her situation, the Nagoya International Center calls the Kita Ward Hokenjo and sets up the 3-way call, allowing the health center staff to simultaneously join the conversation with Mrs. A and the NIC interpreter. Mrs. A can now speak to the health center’s staff through NIC’s interpreter and get her questions answered in her native language.
