Japanese is part of the Japonic group of languages and is spoken by approximately 125 million people, predominantly in Japan. Japanese is written with a combination of three different types of scripts using modified Chinese characters. The Latin alphabet is also often used in modern Japanese, particularly for company names and logos. It can also be said that other languages, notably Chinese and English, have heavily influenced Japanese. Japan has the world’s tenth largest population, with about 126 million people and the Greater Tokyo Area is the largest metropolitan area in the world, with over 38 million inhabitants. The first written mention of Japan comes from brief appearances in Chinese history texts from the first century AD.

Japan is a major economic power and has the world’s third largest economy. It is a member of the United Nations, G7, OECD and APEC and is also the world’s fourth largest exporter and fourth largest importer. Japan is home to some of the most advanced technology in the world and is recognised for producing motor vehicles, electronic equipment, machine tools, steel, ships, chemicals and textiles.

Well-known Japanese companies or brands include Toyota, Nissan, Canon, Honda, Takeda Pharmaceutical, Sony, Nintendo, Nippon Steel, TEPCO, Mitsubishi and Panasonic. Famous Japanese people include Akira Yoshizawa, Daisuke Inoue, Takuma Sato, Yoko Ono, Soichiro Honda, Ichiro Suzuki and Emperor Hirohito.

I just wanted to thank you all for the speedy turnaround of the last two translation jobs despite the jubilee celebrations and compliment you and your translators on the quality of the work.
You call yourselves UK Techtrans, but it would appear that you offer an all round translation service.

Thank you for all the recently translated files. I have received all the CDs, and I am now starting to print the manuals. Everything looks great!
A huge thanks to all the team, - another project completed on time and of high quality. I simply have to press 'print'.
