How YarakuZen Works
YarakuZen automatically incorporates user-saved Phrases and Glossary into the Machine Translation process.
Furthermore, by editing and saving translation, your Phrases and Glossary collection grows. That makes YarakuZen a translation system that learns the more you use it.
1. Start pageDrop the file you want to translate to get started.
YarakuZen's start screen is a minimal Zen-style design.
Machine translation starts after you drop your file and select the desired language.
YarakuZen analyzes sentences one by one, and generates the optimal translated sentence.
If you translate phrases that completely match a phrase you have saved in YarakuZen before, then the saved translation will be displayed.
2. Edit PageEdit Machine Translation → Download as current state.
Edit your text after it's been machine translated. Then, you can download the translated document as in it's original layout.
YarakuZen's machine translation and automatic file processing dramatically improves speed compared to working from scratch.
There are three ways to work: "Edit by yourself", "Order", and "Request from company members".

YarakuZen's Growth Model
