Tidbits about the Japanese Language

 Japanese is the official language of Japan.

 Before Japan had a system of writing, history and traditions were passed on by word of mouth. Once the kanji writing system entered Japan from China, it was adapted to the language with two styles of pronunciation for each character; the "onyomi" style, and the "kunyomi" style. "On-yomi" is a pronunciation that came from a Chinese word and "Kun-yomi" is a pronunciation applied to a Japanese word. Some characters only use one of these styles, while others have several different "On-yomi" and "Kun-yomi" pronunciations.

 The Japanese language also has two other syllabaries; "Hiragana" and "Katakana". Both are phonetic syllabaries, and they each consist of 46 characters. Both are phonetic syllabaries, and they consist of 46 characters respectively. Hiragana was created from simplified versions of kanji, and katakana was used to phonetically connect kanji together in keeping with the requirements of the Japanese language. Nowadays, hiragana is used together with kanji in everyday writing, and katakana is mainly used for foreign words and onomatopoeic phrases representing the sounds of birds and animals.

 The syntactical order of Japanese sentences is generally the subject, the object and the verb. There are also many cases in which the subject is omitted. Consequently, in order to translate Japanese into English, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the contents and their context in order to provide clues as to the omitted subjects. It goes without saying that this requires a deep understanding of the Japanese language. All translated documents produced by JOHO are double-checked by Japanese nationals to guarantee 100% accuracy.
