OKWeb to Develop English FAQs

Internet company OKWeb Inc. recently announced that it is developing an English language version of its service that builds Q&A-style community web sites. The Japanese version of the company's Quick-A service was launched in 2000, and allows vistors to a web site to submit questions. Administrators can post answers to the questions, which in turn can be evaluated as to their usefulness. OKWeb hopes to more fully automate its service, using translation software to create English answers to Japanese questions, by June 2006. The firm will then market the service to foreign companies.
