MESSAGE

“A bridge that connects cultures…”

It is with such an objective in mind that we, DNA Media K.K., continue with our daily activities. Since our establishment through until the present, we have supported numerous clients, ranging in scope from global IT firms through to Japanese publishing houses and TV stations, etc.

In March of 2003, we produced a CD-ROM entitled “Youthful Days of Japanese Design: 20 Years of Progress for TDS,” which was selected by the Foundation for MultiMedia Communications as a project worthy of emulation. Meanwhile, in October of 2006, in concert with the University of Tokyo, we developed a range of English multimedia teaching materials for younger students of the language. The possibilities offered by that project were formerly recognized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government under the terms of its Management Innovation Program.

We were also recognized by Microsoft Corporation as a pre-qualified localization vendor under the Microsoft Vendor Program (MSVP) in September of 2010. To date, we remain the only vendor of Transcreation translation services here in Japan that is recognized by the company.
