This comprehensive, easy-access dictionary lists each entry in romaji (phonetic English), kanji (Japanese ideogram) and English, and carries a brief supporting text that puts each word 'in context' and, when required, provides a historical link to the present day. Those involved in the money markets, therefore, are able to check immediately the significance of screen data and respond accordingly. The book should also prove a useful reference of more general interest to those connected with the financial markets and Japan-related business. Other key listings include a glossary of international financial terms translated into Japanese, corporate job titles in Japanese and the addresses of leading Japanese financial institutions in Tokyo and Osaka. Dominic Williams is a translator and editor of Japanese business information.
