OpenChain FAQ in Japanese

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, July 13, 2017 — Today the OpenChain Project received a significant contribution from our Japanese community members. They have just completed our first Frequently Asked Questions translation. It can be found here:

“It is vital to have localized versions of our specification and supporting documentation to grow our industry standard,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Program Manager. “Our Japanese volunteer community has been exceptional in preparing translations of our specification, our executive overview handout and slides, and now our Frequently Asked Questions. Thanks to Kunai San, Imada San, Taniguchi San, Mieko San and everyone else involved, OpenChain is now more accessible to entities of all sizes in the Japanese market.”

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.


About The OpenChain Project

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.

The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.

The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.
