Japanese Translation and Localization
 
Japanese language
Language family: Japanese
Japanese has three different orthographies with slightly different purposes: Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana. Kanji characters were originally loaned from Chinese and like Chinese, one Kanji character relates to one word. Hiragana and Katakana, known collectively as Kana, are phonetic orthographies. Kanji and Hiragana are often combined in writing, whilst Katakana is mainly used in headings, on signs and to spell new loan words. For transcribing Japanese to Western languages Romaji is used, which is the Japanese name for the Latin alphabet.
Official language of: Japan
Language code ISO 639-1: JA
