About Me

"It's always a pleasure to work with Keisuke, true professional who puts attention to detail and always provides quality translations. He's flexible and always quick to reply."

Rubén Serrano Peinado - Project Manager at Localization at Webzlab

Goal-Oriented Localization Specialist

My name is Keisuke Uno, a native translator, marketer and copywriter.
My motto is "No One Wants a Drill. What They Want Is the Hole.” It means that what you want might not be what you actually need for getting the right result.
Let's say, you were the CEO of your company and good at managing your team but didn't know about localisation at all. Then, you just thought you could get decent sales as long as your texts were translated accurately. However, that is a huge mistake most of the time. To reach your right audience, what you actually need could be to create contents from scratch, since just translating the existing materials could not make the target audience impressed. Your goal is to make a profit by approaching a proper way, NOT just translation itself. I will help you to find and dig your "hole", not giving you a "drill".


My Skills that Leads to Success of Your Localisation


Accurate translations are not always the best.
To convey what you would like to say exactly and make it more persuasive for the Japanese people, I creatively change your texts.


Did you know that readers decide whether they click articles within only 3 seconds, and even they click, most of them leave pages within 15 seconds?
To lead to your sales from an article, I create a copy that attracts your prospects.

Website Optimisation (SEO)

Increasing the awareness of you is the first step to sell your products/services to your customers.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) helps you raise your website on search engine results and that your potential customers find you easily.


You are not sure whether your existing documents are good? Also, you would like to get some insight that is useful in your future localisation projects?
I evaluate your documents and give some insightful advice.

Content Writing

Do you think just hiring native speakers leads to your success in content creation? Absolutely not.
To reach your right audience and let them take an action, readability and logic flow are significant. As a linguistic specialist, I create contents that actually leads to your profit.

Skilled communicator and ASO practitioner

Keisuke is a skilled communicator and ASO practitioner. He was quick to suggest changes to our App and Play store assets including keywords, titles, subtitles, and best of all, screenshots. There is a lot of nuances in the Japanese market and his insight has been invaluable as we push into this market. I would highly suggest working with him and will use him in the future in case we need more Japanese app store optimizations.
