Differences between Japanese and English

Japanese is an independent language; one that differs from English and European languages based on the Roman tongue. For example, the subject of a sentence, which is required in English, is often not used in Japanese. In fact, writing the subject in the same way as in English can result in a Japanese sentence that is difficult to comprehend.

Another technique that is necessary for the sake of comprehensibility is to divide one sentence into several sentences, or to combine several sentences into one.

For such reasons, the translation of English into Japanese normally takes more time than the translation of English into European languages.
