News and Announcements 

 New ELSS prices and a 5th speed of service

ELSS has adjusted prices and added a new speed of service on the occasion of the Japanese sales tax increase (1 October). Our prices are now listed without sales tax. ELSS editing prices remain essentially unchanged, with minor adjustments to round them to even numbers after removing sales tax. Prices for English to Japanese translation have been reduced. Prices for Japanese to English translation have been reduced slightly except for 1-day service, the price for which has been reduced 10%.

Our new speed of service is between our 6- and 18-day speeds (express and regular): 11 days. To simplify the names, we will call them 1-, 3-, 6-, 11-, and 18-day service (excluding weekends and holidays).



 16 November Informal Gathering in Tokyo

About monthly ELSS President Rick Weisburd invites friends, colleagues, clients, students, and former students to attend informal gatherings to discuss research, research writing, or whatever participants want to chat about. Usually these gatherings are at local pubs in Tsukuba but the next informal gathering will be in Tokyo on Saturday 16 November. This gathering will have 2 parts and you are welcome to join either or both. 1. In the morning, visit the Tokyo Port Wild Bird Park near Ryutsu Center in Ota Ward near Haneda Airport.  2. In the afternoon, visit the  American Craft Beer Experience on Tennozu Isle.

No reservations are needed for these November gatherings. If you want to attend, just contact ELSS for further details.
