An somwhat unusual byproduct of the Japan nuke disaster is the opportunity to watch the Japanese public TV station English Language service over the Internet (for all I know it may always be available if you know where to look, but now there are links all over.)
jibtv.com (most consistently available)
Sometimes they are on the air with very skilled English speaking announcers. Sometimes that are carrying what I assume is the Japanese channel, but voice over simultaneous translation.
I have to say, without meaning to offend, that listening to this makes me realize just how hard it is to do this interpreting job while accurately conveying the words, the meaning, and other atmospherics — and to create in the listener confidence in the accuracy.
I encourage folks to listen a bit and think about what it would be like to be in court with your freedom or family status being determined, and this being the level of information you are getting about the proceedings.
