Enigmo launches platform to crowdsource translation of Japanese books



Enigmo (TSE:3665) is an internet company best known for operating Buyma, a marketplace selling selected fashions less likely to be available at retail stores. The company recently launched a new platform called Buyma Books, which lets publishers distribute books in different languages using crowdsourced translators.

Authors or creators can upload books or publications to publish in other languages, and they will be translated by crowdsourced workers on the platform, and then distributed via an iOS reader app. They will start with translating Japanese books into English and Chinese, but more languages are planned for later.
