Client: National Institute of Polar Research (through JTC)

The NIPR puts out a series of colourful information sheets on its Antarctic research efforts, and 30 of these were to be translated into English. Japan has had a significant presence in Antarctica through its permanent Syowa Station since 1957. Evidently, the South Pole isn’t just about penguins; subjects range from the melting of the ice sheet to the discovery of new minerals, astronomy, meteorology, biology and earth sciences. The translation was spread over one month and ran to approximately 11,500 words.
