Tokyo, Japan, March 22, 2013 --( Shubiki Corporation, Japan's leading business content provider, has released a new Japanese linguistics and global-culture series entitled "Japan's Business Culture" for their business skills application "BISCUE App", with translation in 3 languages (for English, Spanish, and Latin American Spanish users), which are available on smartphones and tablets.

Due to the increasing number of foreign employees in Japanese companies, the Japanese-language education market has been steadily growing. However, linguistic materials handling business subjects are not necessarily being supplied to meet the requirements of market demands.

This series is designed for learning both the Japanese business culture and Japanese language simultaneously by using an easy-to-use application for smartphones and tablets. The first title is about greetings in a variety of business scenes.

Shubiki Corporation plans to expand the titles of this series to cover various business know-how and business culture in different countries.

BISCUE App is an application that provides global business professionals with the opportunities to learn business skills by using smartphones and tablets in various languages.

BISCUE App has been developed around the most current training materials being used in Japanese business, and is available in several localized versions, including English and Spanish, for use by their respective native learners.

A major component of the BISCUE App content is its ability to go into the detailed aspects of business in practice, rather than just describing the theories. With the use of QBL (Question Based Learning), BISCUE App constantly motivates its users and allows them to learn the practical know-hows of business in combination with descriptive narrations.

For localized editions, the content not only includes full translation but is refined to adhere to the customs, culture, and requirements of each language speaking region. Using this concept, BISCUE App aims to provide global business professionals with an opportunity to learn cross-cultural practices and improve multilingual skills.
