Japanese Information

Japanese is a language spoken by over 130 million people in Japan and in Japanese emigrant communities.

Language Facts

Japanese vocabulary has been heavily influenced by loanwords from other languages. A vast number of words were borrowed from Chinese, or created from Chinese models. Since the late 19th century, Japanese has borrowed a considerable number of words primarily from English.

Japanese is distinguished by a complex system of honorifics reflecting the hierarchical nature of Japanese society, with verb forms and particular vocabulary to indicate the relative status of speaker, listener and the person mentioned in conversation. There are various levels of politeness referred to as: Polite language, Respectful language, Humble language.

There is also quite a difference between the written and spoken word in Japanese. Special audio translators are available to make your script sound as if it originated in Japan.

Writing

Japanese is written with a combination of three different types of scripts: Chinese characters "Kanji" and two syllabic scripts "Hiragana" and "Katakana". The Latin alphabet, rōmaji, is also often used in modern Japanese, especially for company names and logos, advertising, and when inputting Japanese into a computer. The Hindu-Arabic numerals are generally used for numbers, but traditional Sino-Japanese numerals are also commonplace.

Japanese uses special character font, which most computers display properly. However, if formatting is involved, Japanese requires an Asian operating system. Translated text will be delivered in PDF, formatted files in high resolution PDF ready to print.
