Unlike the English language, Japanese is written with three related sets of characters. These character sets are called hiragana, katakana, and kanji.
Are the set of 46 phonetic symbols that represent the syllables in Japanese. Hiragana are used for verb endings, personal names, and generally when neither of the other characters are appropriate. You use your standard U.S. keyboard to enter hiragana. By typing b-a, for example, the hiragana character for ba will appear. See the explanation of the Front End Processor (FEP) below for more details.
A mirror phonetic representation of the 46 hiragana. These more block-like versions of hiragana are used for words of foreign origin, for scientific words, and for many company names. You enter katakana in an identical way to the way you enter hiragana. See below for more information.
The set of around 2000 "pictograph" characters that represent meaning, as opposed to phonetic sound. These characters are used at the beginning of verbs, in personal, family and place names, as well as for general vocabulary. Using the Front End Processor (FEP), you can enter kanji phonetically (see below) as the Japanese do using your normal English keyboard. If you are not familiar with kanji, or do not know the way kanji are read, you can use the unique Kanji Entry System, which allows you to enter a kanji based on its appearance.
Japanese Translator allows you to enter all three of these types of characters using the built-in Front End Processor (FEP). This allows you to enter any character that occurs in the modern Japanese language (some older "spellings" of archaic kanji characters are not supported.).
You use the Front End Processor (FEP) to enter Japanese into the Japanese window, Combination window, and other parts of dialog boxes that require Japanese text.
You can get Japanese text into Japanese Translator in one of three ways:
Import a Japanese text file by choosing File | Import Text File...
Copying Japanese text from the clipboard
Typing in Japanese text yourself using the FEP
L&H's translation products come equipped with its own FEP, which allows you to enter Japanese. Japanese Translator has two modes: English “US Flag” Mode, and Japanese “Japan Flag” Mode
English "US Flag" Mode (default)
Japanese "Japan Flag" Mode
By default, the English button is depressed. This means any characters you type at the keyboard will be entered as-is into the translation windows, in English.
The Front End Processor is activated when the small Japanese flag button on the toolbar is in Japanese "Japan Flag" mode.
There are two ways to change Entry Modes:
Click on the flag of the target language
Press Ctrl + [space]
Once the Entry Mode is set to Japanese, you are ready to enter Japanese text.
Japanese Character Table Window
Pressing Shift + [space] from the FEP Window opens the Japanese Character Table Window. Using the character table you can point-and-click to enter either hiragana,katakana, kanji, or even symbols without entering their phonetic spellings.
