GIA has launched its online content about gems and jewellery at GIA.edu in Japanese, as part of the Institute’s continued efforts to educate consumers, gem enthusiasts, researchers, retailers, students and lab clients in Japan about gems.

The site will automatically display a language based on the user’s browser preference. A user may select a different language from a drop-down menu which appears at the top of every site page. The translations include more than 1.8 million words in the Gem Encyclopedia, Analysis & Grading, Professional Education, Research & News and About GIA sections.

“The translation of our website is part of GIA’s commitment to delivering gemological information and instruction in Japan in Japanese,” said Bev Hori, GIA’s chief learning officer and senior vice president of education. “Japan is one of the world’s largest markets for gems and jewelry, so it’s important for GIA to make our educational resources available in this important country. Our website features curated gemological content you won’t find elsewhere on the internet, so translating this information helps us serve the public interest.”

GIA launched a redesigned GIA.edu in 2013 as part of its mission to share knowledge and information widely. The site was translated into Simplified Chinese and British English in April 2015. Although, some content including Report Check and laboratory report information, Gems & Gemology articles and the Gübelin gem database has not yet been translated, owing to technical aspects of the content.
