Our Misson

As a result of the continuing expansion of globalization taking place between Japan and the English-speaking countries, there is a greater need for communication and knowledge transfer from Japan, especially to the USA. Professional Language Associates (PLA) contributes substantially to this process by providing a broad array of language services for individuals, businesses, and educational institutions. PLA is supported by language professionals—some offering more than 20 years of experience—in providing high-quality service to its clients.
