In August, The Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) began using the first-ever Japanese-language version of Editorial Manager – a version Aries developed and deployed with help from its distribution partner in Japan, Atlas Corporation. “We reconfigured the product so that the customer could change the field names and other onscreen elements to meet their requirements,” says Ann Richards, Aries Senior Account Coordinator. “The result is a true Japanese user experience; the author sees only Japanese, no English, as he or she works with the system.” This flexibility to customize was a key reason the JSME chose Editorial Manager over competing solutions.
“We are very pleased and honored to be the first user of the Japanese version of Editorial Manager,” says Koshige Tadashi, Publishing Department Manager, JSME. “The system has many excellently detailed features. We understand why Editorial Manager is so widely used by academic societies around the world, and we hope its use will spread in Japan as well.” To visit the JSME submission website, please click here: http://www.editorialmanager.com/trans-jsme/.
