Rival Schools は翻訳会社でもデザイン事務所でもありません。


日本に進出したい海外ブランドの、テキスト翻訳、デバッグ、言語チェック、グラフィックデザイン、映像、WEB に至るまでを、ワンストップでローカライズ支援する多国籍チーム、というのが一番ぴったりだと思います。

Rival Schools Japan is a content and design localization studio focused on helping global brands build better connections in the Japanese market.

Why we do

  • 天気の良い日は近くのカフェなどでミーティングもあり / Having a meeting at cafe nearby when it's sunny
  • オフィスで働く様子 / Working in the office





Because Japan is a uniquely sophisticated market that expects a high level of product design, service, and user experience, this can be a rather challenging marketplace to navigate for non-domestic companies. Our aim is to build a talented team of globally-minded individuals to bring some of the best products and services into the Japanese marketplace that can truly connect with their users.

How we do

  • 様々なデバイスでのテキストやレイアウトの表示をチェック / Copywriting and Design QA with multiple devices
  • クリエイティブな取り組み / Creative Executions



海外のプロダクトやサービスが日本で成功するにはコレが大切になります。この Rival Schools 独自のコンセプトを私たちは Localization UX と呼び、Rival Schools のメンバーは UX Localization スペシャリストとして活躍しています。


Localization UX に少しでも興味があれば、ぜひオフィスに遊びにきてください。BICYCLE COFFEE さんの、コールドブリューコーヒーと一緒にお待ちしています!

We optimize our work by implementing design thinking and UX methodologies in our processes.
Language and culture drive all aspects of user experience, and your product or service needs to be fluent with both. Through Localization UX, and overall user experience.
From how it looks and how it sounds, to the way it reads, Localization UX is designed to help communicate your brand to a Japanese audience in a more meaningful way.
