Buddycom, provided by Science Arts, Inc., announced that Ukrainian and Traditional Chinese were added to the translation language selection. The Ukrainian language, in particular, was added in the hope that, in light of the current world situation, many sites will be more receptive to workers from Ukraine.
Buddycom has included Ukrainian and Traditional Chinese to its transceiver translation function's switch call language.
Transceiver Translation is a feature that allows each group member to set their own language. The voice on the call is translated into the selected language and read aloud by an automated voice. Automated voice translation is automatically converted to text, so you can review the translated conversation later if you missed it.
For example, if a person speaks in Japanese, the message will automatically be transmitted in Ukrainian, and if the other person replies in Ukrainian, they will automatically hear it in Japanese. This allows Ukrainian job applicants with poor Japanese skills to communicate smoothly with Japanese people, and many Japanese workplaces will be able to enhance their job offer acceptance rate. We have developed this feature for we believe it will help achieve our SDGs*1. In order to provide a safe and comfortable working environment for foreign workers and deskless workers, Buddycom will continue to promote on-site DX.

■Transceiver Translation Supports 18 Languages Depending on the Engine
By creating and registering a fixed sentence in advance it is possible to set the reading voice to play instantly with a simple operation. We ensure the safety of our employees through constant attention, not only through group calls, but also through regular reminders such as ‘heat stroke alerts’ and ‘severe weather alerts’ and so on.

1 What are the SDGs?
Adopted at a UN summit in September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals are targets set by 193 UN member states to be achieved over a 15-year period from 2016 to 2030.
Through this project, we believe that we can contribute to the following goals among the 17 SDGs by strengthening our capacity to host Ukrainians who wish to work in our country.
1. End poverty
10. End inequality among people and nations
16. Peace and justice for all
