TAUS Website Localization Teams

TAUS has been working with universities all over the world to get the TAUS website localized in other languages. We currently offer a Japanese, Chinese and Spanish version of our website. On this page you can find more information about the people who've been working in the background on this localization.


In Japan we've been working together with Honyaku Center and a number of students to create the Japanese web pages. Our project leaders are Rie Miyake and Popal Daoud Akira. The volunteers are Nakazawa Mai, Shibata Ayako, Yasuko Watanabe, Salim Imee, Shizuka Ideta, Matsumi Mitsuke, Yoko Mizuno, Megumi Nishiguci, Mineko Ogura, Reiko Watanabe, Ray Miyata, Naoko Sato, Hiroki Kawano, Yudai Kishimoto, Madoka Zaizen, Mayuko Komura, Beibei He, Haruna Miyamoto.


Alex Han from the Beijing Language & Culture University has been leading the localization project in China. In April 2016 we were in Beijing for the TAUS Executive Forum and pleased to meet Alex and a number of his students who've been translating the TAUS web pages.
