Japan Style Sheet is an authoritative guide for anyone working on English-language publications about Japan. Designed for non-specialists, it contains clear stylistic advice on word formation; "spelling" Japanese words; capitalization; italicization; numbers; bibliographic forms; personal and place names; and using long marks (macrons), apostrophes, and other aids to romanizing Japanese.
Explanations and alternatives throughout enable writers and editors to make stylistic decisions based on their intended audiences. Ten appendices, including Internet Resources, will be especially useful to translators and fact checkers.
