The Best Communication Experience

UI Localization Solutions, created in Sapporo, Japan

User Interface (UI)- a term that may sound technical, but which is in fact an essential element for any company.
Not only is a UI the "front door" to direct access with users, its usability and overall functionality can have a large impact on corporate and product image.
However, UI translation can be beset by multiple challenges, including limits on the number of characters and complex operational procedures. ALAYA has established the UI Localization Center in Sapporo, where we have concentrated the wealth of experience we have built up in this sector. With the best quality translation it is possible to draw out maximum product value.
What is more, at the UI Localization Center from the project design phase we provide solutions to improve work flow, including such considerations as cost reduction and shortened delivery time.
Our network of native speakers from around the world can also perform actual checks on the UI and equipment.
As a UI localization professional we work to eliminate all problems and inconveniences with a view to raising product value.
