About Us

Ryusuke Okada, President

Message from our President

The Japanese language is one of the most complicated languages in the world. A certain expression can be articulated in several ways in Japanese, but with subtly different connotations which are often difficult to distinguish for non-native speakers. It is therefore a language that cannot be handled by translation machines.

Without the right choice of words, the intended meaning will not be thoroughly conveyed. I often come across corporate disclosure materials written in extremely odd Japanese as a result of very poor translation. This I believe is something of extreme concern since it can threaten the creditability of a company.

At TAKARA INTERNATIONAL (HK) LTD. we pursue the “Made in Japan Quality” in the field of language. We have handled information disclosure for numerous listed corporations in Japan for over 70 years. Looking ahead, we aim to provide these quality translation services to clients in the Asian region including Hong Kong as well.
