Translation by a translator assigned by the project manager
Self-check by translator (mistranslations, missing translations, terminology, numbers, symbols, incorrect characters, missing characters, notation check)
Cross-language check by native or Japanese translation checker (cross-language check between original and translated text based on project requirements, and brush up)
Checking using quality assurance (QA) tools to prevent human error (missing translations, inconsistency in symbols and other formatting, garbled characters, lack of translation uniformity, lack of conformity with term bases)
Final check by project managers prior to delivery
We are strong in foreign language typesetting and academic fields, and provide high quality multilingual DTP and editing services that cover everything from designing and formatting to editing, writing, proofreading, and printing. We offer a full range of services related to multilingual text, from design and layout to, editing, writing, proofreading, and printing.
Each language is full of rules that are specific to that language, so it is essential that DTP work is carried out by knowledgeable and experienced DTP operators. Since the amount of text varies by language, we adjust font size, and sometimes the position and size of images, when formatting text.
This check includes ensuring that the translated text has been correctly added to design data and that there are no garbled characters or unnatural sentence breaks, as well as no mistakes in the translated content.
When translating into multiple languages, a final check is made to ensure that consistency is maintained between languages, then a first draft is submitted to the client.
First Draft Corrections > Resubmission > Further Corrections > Final Proof Submission > Final Proof Checks / Text Correction Approvals
PDF files or design data that have passed through the correction process are either submitted to the client or sent directly to a printing company. The number of times that a document will undergo corrections depends on the project.
We can help resolve any obstacles you face doing business in Japan.

Introducing some of our business partners.

This standard sets out requirements in respect of human assets (translators, checkers, project managers, etc.), technological assets, and work processes (preparation, production, and post-production). ISO 17100 certification proves that any projects undertaken by a certified translation service provider (TSP) satisfy these requirements.
We hold ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, an international standard for information security management systems (ISMS), along with national standard JIS Q 27001:2014.

1. Establishment, implementation, maintenance, and ongoing improvement of ISMS
2. Information security risk management and risk response
They not only include technical measures, but also employee education and training, as well as the establishment of an organizational structure, thereby enabling an organization to check that the framework is being maintained and continuously improved.
