We also edit materials written in English by Japanese native speakers. We take pride in providing English documents that sound natural to native English speakers while remaining highly understandable to non-native speakers.

Global English

Today we estimate that 80% of readers of the average clinical study or journal article are non-native speakers of English. Our English documents are highly readable for both native and non-native English speakers, and are also easier to translate into other languages. We also offer training for native Japanese speakers in how to write clear, effective English for a global readership.

“You can’t do better than Seaman Medical! They are courteous, competent, efficient, and detail-oriented. Best of all, they propose practical solutions to the problems posed by the uniqueness of the Japanese language. It has been a pleasure working with them.
