    missing words?

    The following are sentences from a report by an American company (but it is unknown whether the writer is American or not).

    1. Fully two thirds of the companies in recent research told us that the toughest market to localize for Japan.

    2. Pay close to the resulting text.


    I think something is missing in the both sentences. My guess is:

    1. Fully two thirds of the companies in recent research told us that the toughest market to localize is [not for] Japan.

    2. Pay close attention to the resulting text.


    Am I right, or are the original sentences perfect?

    [A reply from ENGLISH NATIVE SPEAKERS would be appreciated. ]
