NHK errs in simultaneous interpretation of Obama’s remark at joint news conference

(Nikkei: April 30, 2015 – p. 30)


 NHK apologized during a news program on the morning of April 29 that it had made a mistake in the simultaneous interpretation of a remark by President Barack Obama during its live coverage of the joint news conference held after the bilateral summit in the predawn hours of the same day.


 NHK said that the simultaneous interpretation was rendered as: “I would like to deal more flexibly with the relocation of the Futenma base in Okinawa,” but this should be: “We reaffirmed that we will make efforts to promote the relocation of U.S. Marines in Okinawa to Guam.”
