Japanese website

One of my New Year's resolutions this year was to create a Japanese-language website. I waited until November, but I managed to get one up by year's end.

Here it is:

My goal for the site is to give pointers on technical-English writing to Japanese native speakers, while creating a presence that will help me attract Japanese clients.

It feels kind of odd to write about good English writing in lousy Japanese, but maybe it will serve as a warning about the difficulties of writing in a foreign language. 🙂

    Hi! I was interested to look at your Japanese site. I said that I would make a home page for my Japanese friend and the only way I know to mark up Japanese text is to use the unicode stuff that MSWord churns out, like this ありがとう

    Can I ask what you used to build your site? When I view your source code I can see the actual Kanji/kana. Is it very technical or do I need special software?

    Many thanks 🙂

    Ah… It’s turned my code into Japanese! In the source code it’s all ampersands, hashes and numbers. (sorry!!)

    The Japanese in your comment looks OK to me.

    My Japanese website (BetterTechEnglish.com) was made using the Japanese version of wordpress, and it was very easy.
