Details

Reasons behind the release

In recent years, with the globalization of companies and inbound employment, there has been an increasing demand for manuals in multiple languages for use at overseas locations and for expatriate employees.

Some customers have expressed that creating manuals for each language or writing multiple languages in a single manual requires a large amount of man-hours to create and update.

Advantages of using this function

  • When you create a manual in one language, your viewers can view the manual in the language of their choice.
  • People who speak different languages can communicate using the manual as a starting point.

It is effective for an efficient training of foreign workers, allowing them to expand their field of activity.

Supported Languages

You can set the displayed language for each group from sixteen languages that are widely used around the world.

* The translation of the Task Name and Description will be released around May-June 2023, followed by the Task List, which will be released around summer 2023.

Plans for future feature additions

We plan to release an additional "translation dictionary function" (scheduled for summer 2023).
This function allows users to specify the translation result for each word to prevent unintended translation.

Example of Industry Terminology

マネキン販売 → Sales Demonstration
The direct translation of this Japanese word would be “Mannequin sale”, which does not properly describe the action of selling while explaining the product.

Example of Product Name

唐揚げ → Karaage
The direct translation of this Japanese word would be “Fried Chicken”, which the meaning is quite wide and may not convey exactly for this typical type of “Karaage Fried Chicken”.

Example of Words with multiple meanings

Bat = animal, sport equipment used in baseball
Second = a measurement of time, a placement of something after the first
