  • Ministry of Environment – National Parks of Japan Activity Compilation 2020

    Translation and Editing

    Starting in 2018, SEDO was responsible for the English translation, managed by JTB, for this Ministry of Environment brochure compiling information on tourism-related activities available at the various National Parks of Japan. In addition to revising existing English translations, we have worked on new translations each year and the current brochure is some 300 pages and continues to grow each year. Our specialized team is familiar with the national parks themselves, but also the relevant language needed to describe the natural world with accuracy.

The non-verbal videos and English-language content, were then promoted with a social media campaign on Facebook and Instagram that far exceeded its initial reach goals.
