THANKS, DICE K:

Boston.com to share with Japanese site (Boston Globe, December 28, 2006)

Boston.com, the Web site of The Boston Globe, has signed a content-sharing agreement with an established Japanese language baseball site, it was announced Thursday.

Under the agreement, excerpts of baseball coverage in the newspaper, on Boston.com and on the Boston Dirt Dogs fan site will be translated into Japanese and posted on Go-RedSox.com, a site that has been operated for the past three years by Japanese sports journalist Daigo Fujiwara, who also is a graphics designer at the Globe. Fujiwara also operates a site on Japanese baseball players in Major League Baseball.

"This agreement is a creative way to bring our brand of quality coverage to a new audience who cares about Boston-area sports," said David Beard, editor of Boston.com. "This is no mere translation service."
