Our goal is to ensure your professionalism extends to all of your company’s communications.
Our specialist corporate team will produce clear, technically accurate, and authoritative business communications, helping to smooth the way you conduct business inside and outside of Japan.
We currently work with a wide range of corporate clients, including government agencies, large domestic and multinational corporations (in the sectors of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, oil and other natural resources, medical devices, food and beverages, electronics, etc.), R&D departments, small and start-up companies, and hospitals and clinics.
Find out below how, over the past 10 years, we have been supporting all kinds of organizations to communicate their message clearly and accurately to current and prospective customers, employees, industry partners, regulatory bodies, and the general public.
We look forward to working with you, too.
Support services for companies and organizations
Your company’s documents will be handled by our experienced corporate team, saving you time and money in document preparation. Most importantly, our subject specialists will ensure your message is conveyed clearly and accurately, to avoid misunderstandings and miscommunications.
Your data and documents will be handled securely. We have vendor agreements already in place with many large multinationals and we are, of course, happy to sign non-disclosure agreements and comply with your data handling and protection policies.
We understand that not everyone needs the highest level of detail for all parts of all projects. Therefore, depending on your needs and on your budget for each project, we can offer flexible pricing by focusing on the parts that matter most.
We’re happy to handle small projects as well as large projects requiring project management, and we offer pricing reductions to customers who regularly use our services.
For select NPOs, we are very happy to take on translation, editing, and copywriting projects at reduced or no cost (pro bono) as our schedules allow.
Projects involve many kinds of business communications, and we can help to ensure your success in many areas (see Project Examples below for more details).
Sales & promotional literature
Distinguish your company from the competition by producing error-free sales and promotional literature that gives your customers and industry partners the information they need.
We can help you produce exactly the type of document you need, whether that involves translation, copywriting, or editing.
Examples: Conference/trade show materials, website text, CSR reports, catalogs, product pamphlets, media campaign and press releases, newsletters and reviews for industry partners and the public, etc.
Research papers, abstracts, conference presentations
Publish your research in academic journals, trade/industry publications, conference proceedings, and other forums. Prepare effective corporate and academic presentations.
Get ahead of your competitors by publishing well-written operator and user manuals that readers will find practical and easy to read. A quality manual can quickly pay for itself by reducing support requests and increasing customer satisfaction.
Patents and other intellectual property are intangible but valuable assets, and their value rests entirely in how they’re communicated. By working with us on editing and translation of patents, you can ensure that your claims aren’t made broader or narrower than decided by your IP advisors.
Many types of legal documents are needed in business. We can provide either certified or uncertified translations, according to your needs.
Examples: Service-level agreements, employee contracts, company policies/regulations, property and equipment rental/lease agreements, etc.
Regulatory affairs documentation
In today's competitive environment, the success of a product—and hence the company—can be a matter of reducing the time taken to reach the market. The proper reporting of Regulatory Affairs activities is therefore of considerable economic importance to companies. For both small and large projects, we are able to support you in the accurate translation and editing of technical documentation, doing so within your deadline.
Examples: ISO; ethics, compliance and transparency; GCP, GMP, etc.
Our regular corporate customers can enjoy business support at low prices, allowing them to make sure the most important company communications are error-free and unambiguous.
This can be combined with new employee training and on-going professional development (see Communications Training for Staff below).
Translation & editing services
Your documents will be translated by our carefully selected teams of specialist translators and native-speaking editors. They will ensure your message is conveyed accurately and authoritatively, with the goal of saving you time and money in document preparation.
Our main language pair is English and Japanese, but we also offer translation in other languages, including Russian, Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
Our expert copywriters can help you to promote your business effectively in the language of your choice.
Copywriting is the art of writing text that promotes your business, products, and services in the best possible way for today’s highly competitive market. The main purpose of copywriting is to persuade the listener or reader to act – for example, to buy a product or ascribe to a certain viewpoint.
Copywriting is used in every major area of business, including:
- corporate and product slogans
- brochures, pamphlets, and catalogs
- product packaging
- website text
- advertisements (printed, radio, TV)
- sales letters
- business plans and proposals
Our copy writers can create effective sales and promotional material from scratch. Or, if you already have the text prepared and need translation or editing, we can supplement with our copywriting service to the extent needed. Additional copywriting will ensure your sales and promotional material is communicated in a natural and culturally appropriate way to your customers, industry partners, and staff, wherever they are located in the world.
Business communications analysis & advice
The difference between a good business and a great business can be seen clearly in its communications practices. Great businesses communicate clearly, both internally (with current and potential employees, with contract workers, between business units, etc.) and externally (with current and prospective customers, with vendors, etc.) in a way consistent with their values.
We can analyze the focus and consistency of your company’s communications. Whether internal communication is contributing to employee turnover, a culturally inappropriate stance is alienating potential customers, or the amount of information that must be communicated is simply overwhelming, we can help you to identify problem areas and suggest practical ways for you to fix them.
Communications training for staff
Ultimately, all corporate communications come from staff. This can be indirectly, such as through a company newsletter, research reports, advertising, and other communications, or directly from an employee.
From presentation training to conflict-resolution workshops, we offer a wide variety of services to help your employees communicate better: not only with more power but also with a clearer focus on your desired message.
