FACIL is the non-profit organization, collaborating with various companies, NPO, and educational institutions to provide a language translation service as a community business.

In 1995, Kobe earthquake occurred. For foreigners who do not speak Japanese, the volunteer organization was formed. It was their starting point to build the FACIL. With the certain amount of payment, they translate in over 30 different languages. Their translation job focus on the creation of website, poster, flyer, DTP, narration and ect. They not only translate but also create design work at the same time. Especially, they put an effort to help the foreigner in local area, so that they are able to communicate with Japanese in neighborhood.
