As part of the new generation of "boutique" translators, our mission is to provide specialized services for clients striving to communicate effectively from Japanese to English.
With CAT (computer aided translation*), human translators use computer software to assist in the translation process — like engineers who use CAD/CAM to design products and control manufacturing processes.
BJ Honyaku (translation) is built on a solid foundation spanning three decades of in-house experience at a major Japanese machine tool manufacturer.
