Lifesaver when first impressions count!

"My girlfriend is Japanese and I am from India. After dating for a while I was keen to formally introduce myself to her family. This was difficult without speaking Japanese! Konnichiwhat helped me craft a presentation with their templates, and through their culture consult helped me to customize the message. With the provided translation and phonetics, I was able to introduce myself over Zoom in Japanese! Her family loved the effort. Thanks Konnichiwhat for helping me make a great first impression!"
