    50 Years Since the Company's Founding, Looking Ahead to the Next 50 Years

    Yu Kusakabe

    Since TOIN was first established, it has always been our company policy to provide the best service to our clients. In 2013, we welcomed the company's 50th anniversary, and in 2016, I was appointed as the new company CEO. I am honored to be in the position to lead TOIN for the beginning of their new chapter, the next 50 years.
    I wonder if people 50 years ago were able to imagine the current progress of IT technology. It is said that in 2045, artificial intelligence will exceed humans. Since the founding of our business, we have been involved with work relating to words and languages. 50 years from now, I imagine our service will change dramatically. We will continue to strive with all our energy to offer the best service for our clients by being flexible to changes in the world and incorporating the latest technologies.
