NSD Co., Ltd. and Language Weaver Announce Strategic Partnership to Advance Japanese Automated Language Translation

Investment and Partnership Focused on Engaging Japanese Businesses to Improve Quality of Global Customer Communications

TOKYO and LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) - NSD Co., Ltd. (9759/T), a leading systems integrator in Japan, and Language Weaver, the leader in trusted automated translation solutions, today announced a strategic partnership and the establishment of a dedicated team to advance automated translation quality and capabilities for the Japanese market.

"As the second largest economy in the world, Japan is a leader in the export market; therefore, communicating in multiple languages is critical for the Japanese economy and ongoing growth of Japan businesses," said Yoshikazu Imajo, president and COO of NSD. "Language Weaver has exhibited unique expertise in automated translation technology by improving quality through focused refinement efforts. We look forward to delivering a great solution to expand global communication opportunities."

Under the terms of the agreement, NSD Co., Ltd will become the master distributor for Language Weaver in Japan and make a strategic investment in the company. NSD will also work closely with Language Weaver to engage Japanese businesses and speakers in an ongoing quality improvement program that will include calibration of TrustScore™ by native speakers. Announced last quarter, TrustScore enables customers to generate automatic language translation with a quality score to ensure better customer communications. 

"Internet growth in Asia is significant but most of the information on the Web is inaccessible because of a language barrier. This partnership enables Language Weaver to prove its quality in the Asian market," said Mark Tapling, president and CEO of Language Weaver. "NSD has a long history of providing innovative solutions to the Japanese market for technology users. As a local leader with wide reach, NSD is positioned to deliver a successful translation solution in the Japanese market."
