Russian – Main Services

  • Industrial plants

    Since our company was founded, we have been engaged in the translation of various manuals for plant projects in the former Soviet Union. For the large-scale plant projects conducted during perestroika in the 1980s, we provided comprehensive support by forming translation offices and dispatching groups of interpreters. We also offer high-quality translations for design documents and technical drawings.

  • International cooperation

    For projects related to international cooperation and official development assistance (ODA) by the Government of Japan, we translate the textbooks used for technical trainee programs accepting people from the former Soviet Union (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, etc.). We have also translated a large number of ODA-related survey reports.

  • Other technical translation
