日英翻訳・通訳業界全体の底上げ – Come. Learn. Columbus.

The JAT committee, IJET-28 organizing committee and everyone who participated and attended IJET-28 in Columbus, Ohio wish to thank Ohio State University [] and its East Asian Studies Center for providing us the facilities and every convenience in order to make this another fantastic conference.
