Multi-checking processes from original text to translation.

(1) Writers’ articles are written along with editing policies, but editors check whether they are appropriate, or they flow naturally, and if not appropriate, ask the writer to alter.

(2) Then, proof-readers check whether the expressions are appropriate, or there are typos, or the text is based on fact

(3) The corrected text is passed to a translator. Our top class translators include former diplomat, global company business person, those who scored nearly 1,000 in TOEFLE, or passed first grade English proficiency test many times.

(4) The translated text is passed to English editor whose mother-tong is English. It is checked and edited to be more natural English.

(5) Followed by other proof readers, the amended English text is compared to the Japanese text whether both texts match or not.

(6) After finishing layout, English proof-reader whose mother tong is English check the English text.

In addition, Japanese editor and proof readers check Japanese text and also whether the both texts match correctly.
