1. Wide Range of Supported Languages:

  • English (British/American)

We also support other languages, so please feel free to contact us.

All of our multilingual services are performed by experienced foreign or multilingual Japanese speakers and checked at a native level. This ensures the creation of “beautiful” and natural foreign language content, unlike the rigid translations often provided by machine translation or specialized translation services.

2. Multilingual Narration Production

Our multilingual narration production service, which boasts numerous deliveries, supports various foreign languages including English, Chinese, Korean, and Thai.
As a high-quality studio recording service by experienced foreign narrators or Japanese bilingual narrators, we are known for our exceptional cost performance.
Additionally, our multilingual directors and engineers ensure smooth communication of nuanced instructions, even with foreign clients present during the recording.

3. One-Stop Service Integration with Other Services

Our multilingual content production is integrated with other services such as web production, Corporate Video Production, and Music Production. This allows for one-stop support for Japanese and foreign languages in all fields, including websites, print materials, videos, audio, and music.

This integration significantly reduces production time and costs, while enhancing promotional effects through the use of top narrators, voice actors, musicians, and creators.

5. Translation Only Requests

We also accept translation-only requests without accompanying content production.

Our translation work is primarily handled by current university professors or native-level bilingual speakers with a proven track record in translation and interpretation.

A Japanese speaker who understands the target language will always conduct the final check, minimizing discrepancies between the original and translated texts and preserving the nuances of the original text for “beautiful” translations.
