Originally, the company had been working on a highly accurate translator called “KAZUNA” for the 2020 Olympics.
Using this translation software, RemoSpace was developed so that business meetings between Japanese and overseas companies and communication with overseas branches can be proceeded smoothly without interpreter amid the coronavirus crisis.
In addition, it translates multiple languages in real-time. Currently, translations are available for five languages: Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese, and there are plans to increase the number of supported languages to 112 in the future.
The conference included a presentation of the video, showing the meeting that was actually held in multiple language, and each language was translated and transcribed to text.
Mr. Masuda himself said that he has many opportunities to do online business meetings in multiple languages, and explained why he created RemoSpace, saying “I thought we can create a service that can make conversations even more smoothly considering the needs in the time of the COVID-19 crisis.”
RemoSpace is targeting the BtoB market, and will provide flexible usage fees for each contract without having specific rates. As a guide, it’s 3,000 yen for 60 mins.
For your information, the founder of RemoSpace Mr. Masuda and CEO Mr. Onaka also run TAKUMI JAPAN, which provides translators such as Kazuna eTalk 5. Mr. Masuda explained the relationship between TAKUMI JAPAN and RemoSpace, saying “There is no capital ties, and we divide them as TAKUMI JAPAN is hardware and RemoSpace is software”.
