Japanese success for Internet company

Ian Briggs

Wakefield-based Web-Translations has won two contracts to translate and localise website content and marketing materials from English to Japanese.

The company was founded by Daniel Rajkumar, of Bramley, Leeds, and aims to help companies translate their own websites into formats understandable to international audiences.

Web-Translations will translate website material for Dynamic Digital Depth (DDD), of Los Angeles, and Oxford-based Celoxica.

DDD aims to bring 3D viewing technology to video, photographs and games without the need for 3D glasses and is planning to expand into the Asian market.

Celoxica specialises in reducing the time and costs associated with complex digital design and the acceleration of software.

Catherine McTeigue, project manager at Web-Translations, said: “These business wins demonstrate not only a recognition of our strengths for localisation of Asian languages, in particular Japanese, but also our ability to work with very technical content.”
