In 1964, right before the Tokyo Olympics, the pace of internationalization in Japan increased rapidly. Mostly due to large scale international conferences, the demand for specialists such as translators and interpreters increased in every region of the country. Seeing these changes and sensing a new business opportunity, JCS was founded.
