What's New in Asana

こんにちは! Asana is now available in Japanese

Collaboration has become more global than ever. With teams in 190 countries using Asana and half of our revenue coming from outside the U.S., we’ve made it a priority to enable people to manage their work in the language they’re most comfortable (and productive) with.

Over the past eighteen months, we’ve launched Asana in French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Today, we’re excited to add one more language to that list with the launch of Asana in Japanese.

This is just the beginning of our long-term commitment to Japanese customers. We’re particularly excited to help teams implement “Work-Style Reform” by using Asana to manage and coordinate their most important initiatives and, ultimately, be more productive at work.

Making collaboration more efficient

We couldn’t be more excited about helping Asana customers around the world work together with less effort. This includes Japanese companies like CAMPFIRE and Zaim.

CAMPFIRE is a crowdfunding platform that lets users raise money to fund projects. By linking Asana to their own database, tickets are automatically created in Asana whenever a new project is submitted by a CAMPFIRE user.

“Thanks to Asana, it’s now possible to efficiently and accurately review more projects, which has a significant impact on the number of projects and the amount of money going through our platform, one of the most important metrics for our business.”

– Toshiaki Sasaki, Product Manager and Director, CAMPFIRE

Zaim is a personal finance app that helps users track their finances. They introduced Asana company-wide to increase transparency and enable their team to deliver results.

“By using Slack and Asana together, we’ve created space for team members to freely express their opinions, enabling us to come up with new ideas, create an effective process for teamwork, and produce better results.”

– Takako Kansai, CEO, Zaim

Join us in Tokyo for workshops (and more)

With today’s launch of Asana in Japanese, we’re just getting started. Later this year, we’ll be opening an office in Tokyo to better serve customers locally. And in early April, we’ll be hosting a series of workshops in Tokyo to help you get the most out of Asana, whether you’re just getting started with the app, looking for advanced tips, or interested in learning more about work management.
