Keywords International Limited Launches Branch Office in Tokyo

February 2010

Keywords International Limited (Keywords International), global provider of outsourced video game localization and testing services, is proud to announce the opening of their new operations center for East Asian languages in Tokyo, Japan. Offices are located in Tokyo’s well-known Yoyogi area, providing easy access to clients within the metropolitan area and commercial hotspots such as Shinjuku and Shibuya.

The expansion into Japan is fueled by growing relations with clients in the country and the rise in demand for high quality localization services. Keywords International has enjoyed strong relationships over the years with major video game studios and publishers in the region, and the production center in Tokyo will allow for greater support of both East Asian and Western publishers and developers.

Leading the move into Japan is Christopher M. Kennedy, Business Development Manager, Asia. He is a long-term resident of Japan, and brings years of experience in video game localization from his previous position at Square Enix Inc., Ltd., a leading worldwide publisher and developer. A keen gamer himself, his professional involvement in multiple steps of the video game development process in the East Asian region provides him with a thorough understandingof the unique requirements of the region.

Keywords International, headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, has been providing translation, audio, testing and certification support for all platforms and genres to major video game publishers and developers worldwide for over ten years.
