President’s Message

Forte is one of the longest-established Japan-based companies providing specialized translation and rewriting services to doctors, scientists, researchers, and engineers. Our clients range from graduate students to Nobel Prize winners. Because Forte is not affiliated with or owned by any academic journal publisher, our editorial policy to our clients is free of bias. Because Forte is HEADQUARTERED IN JAPAN (and not outside Japan), we understand our Japanese clients and can provide appropriate services perfectly meeting the needs of our clients. We are also certified for the highest level of privacy protection under Japan’s strict standards for the handling of personal information (JIS Q 15001:2006 – Personal Information Protection Management System). You can be assured your research data and personal information will be handled safely by us.


In addition to securely handling our clients’ research data and personal information, we are committed to achieving ever-higher levels of customer satisfaction, as expressed in our Quality Policy. We maintain a dynamic and comprehensive Quality Management System (certified under ISO 9001:2008) with the aim of continuously improving the quality of the products and services we provide to our clients. Our Quality Management System is another cornerstone in the foundation of our company’s business assets.


Forte is also a strong advocate of Corporate Social Responsibility. We believe that companies have a social responsibility to give back to the communities in which they operate. This belief is embodied in our commitment to serve the public welfare. We offer a Student Aid Program for graduate students; provide pro bono services to nonprofit, civic, and humanitarian organizations; and actively support science education. We participate actively in World Community Grid—the world’s largest public computing grid dedicated to research projects that benefit humanity—by donating Forte’s core server infrastructure during off-peak hours to compute data for global projects related to AIDS, Ebola, malaria, tumor markers, clean energy, and environmental modeling.


During our nearly 30 years in business, Forte has helped our Japanese clients contribute to their respective fields and to humanity. We are proud of our long history of providing high-quality translation and rewriting services that maximize our clients’ chances of getting published in high-impact journals, and we remain firmly committed to the success of each individual client. We remain dedicated to our mission of helping our clients and the nation of Japan to “Write the Future.”
