Industry Translation

Providing optimal language solutions for the needs of globalizing businesses

Industrial translation supports the globalization activities of a wide range of industries from major manufacturers in auto, electronics, precision machinery, railway and aerospace, to non-manufacturers such as energy, IT and communications.

Leading technology and resources allow Honyaku Center to scale services to fit your volume, turnaround, and cost requirements, and our specialized translators and expert staff ensure quality translation.
