  • Voice Create Tokyo: Japanese and English Website Creation

    Website Creation

    A client approached us looking for a bilingual website, but it quickly became clear that the potential readers of the Japanese and English versions would be very different. Accordingly we developed two parallel sites, similar in design and content, but tailored to each market. We also produced an introductory video, and ran Google advertising campaigns to drive traffic.

  • English Social Media Content Creation for Medical Supplier

    Social Media Content Creation

    Created original English content for the global Facebook page of a company developing medical products and services. Since pharmaceutical-related writing is specialized content, and the products in questions were highly specialized, the the client created a rough draft of the manuscript in Japanese covering the key points, and our native English writer wrote the content in English. We also created an advertising campaign plan and provided advice on Facebook for the overseas market. Finally, we provided the representative for the company's social media presence training and support so they could eventually manage advertising campaigns internally.
