Evaluation of Human Science Co., Ltd.

"We also have high expectations for the use of machine translation."


Always polite and sincere, we are grateful for your support in smoothly progressing our translation projects.

We seek translators who have a thorough understanding of the product and can provide reliable translations.

Only a part of Garoon documents are being translated by Human Science. These include high-priority user help and administrator guides. In fact, there are still documents that need to be translated. We are considering using machine translation for this, and we are also receiving support for introducing machine translation.


We are relying on proposals that utilize translation-related systems and engineering knowledge when implementing machine translation.
