How do you say just in Japanese

German-Japanese dictionary

Japan: worth the trip

Japan undoubtedly belongs on the to-do list of every globetrotter. On the fourth largest island state in the world with its almost 7,000 islands, there is a lot to discover not only linguistically but also culturally. Japan, for example, is one of the world's last empires. "平 成" (spoken: Heisei) is what Emperor Akihito called his reign, in German: "Peace everywhere". If you look at the Japanese landscapes like Kyoto, you can only agree unconditionally. Japan is a paradise for nature lovers such as mountaineers and hikers. Mount Fuji, volcano and at the same time the highest mountain in Japan, is particularly popular. For those who return from mountaineering starved, the land of the rising sun has the next highlight ready: the culinary delights. Rice, seafood, sushi, pickled vegetables - the Japanese are famous for leading long and healthy lives thanks to their light and healthy cuisine.

Discover the Japanese language with Langenscheidt

So there are more than enough reasons to pay a visit to Nippon - as Japan is called in the local language - or just to deal a little more with the culture of the island nation. The particular challenge here: the language barrier. Because even if Japanese students learn English as their first foreign language, it is not always far with the foreign language skills of the Japanese. This is especially true in the more rural areas. Anyone who tries to order a Michkaffe in English there could quickly reach their limits. It is good when competent help with the translation is quickly at hand. An electronic translator such as the German-Japanese online dictionary from Langenscheidt is the ideal companion for a trip to Japan.

Let's talk business

Speaking of coffee - probably one of the most important terms in the business world, especially in the land of the rising sun. Japan is one of the largest economic forces in the world. Around 1.5 million people move around Tokyo every day - twice as many people as live in the city. Including, of course, many international business people. It is precisely these who probably also know how much importance the Japanese place on etiquette. A factor that should not be neglected if the business contact is to be successful. Anyone who deals with regional customs or even rehearses common politeness formulas on foreign territory before the appointment, implicitly expresses his appreciation of the culture of the foreign country to the other person. What could be a better way to start a successful conversation?

Japanese not only in Japan

But not only the Japanese themselves are rightly fans of their own culture - Japanese traditions and modern influences such as mangas, cosplay or sushi are also finding more and more enthusiastic followers in Europe. And regardless of whether it is out of cultural interest, to deepen Japanese business contacts or to read a Japanese manga in the original - interest in the Japanese language is growing everywhere, and translation is child's play with the German-Japanese dictionary from Langenscheidt.

Last but not least, the Japanese language is a living expression of a culture whose politeness, expressed in the truest sense of the word, is also reflected in the simplest of empty phrases. Just to be able to appreciate that, it is worthwhile to delve deeper into knowledge of the language.
