This book is intended to help you easily determine your Japanese name and learn the most suitable way to write it with Japanese Kanji. Japan more than most countries, places emphasis on harmoniously blending in with others. In fact, it has not one, but two proverbs similar to the Western, "When in Rome…" Go ni itte wa, go ni shigagae, or "Obey the customs of the village you enter;" and Deru kugi wa utareru, or "The nail that sticks up will be hammered." This suggests, then that the Westerner who manages to leap across the cultural chasm and adapt his or her name to the vernacular is taking the first step toward a happy and productive stay among the Japanese. Even though an English name might not have an equivalent Japanese name, Write Your Name in Kanji will help you understand what goes into selecting a name, and will present a number of choices so that you can pick the most appropriate characters to represent your own name in the Japanese language. In doing so, this book may even help give you a better understanding of your original English (or other) name. As you will see with this Kanji book, you may consider several different Japanese equivalents for your name and select the most appropriate to your tastes and character. If you are not satisfied with the meaning carried by your original English name, chances are that you can find a name approximating it phonetically but containing a fabulous meaning that your English name lacks. You may decide to use one of the "attention-getting transcriptions" to amuse your friends or deliver such an unforgettable first impression that new business associates will never forget you. If you stick to the original meaning of your English name, you may also find a corresponding one in fascinating kanji. If you prefer a simple phonetic transcription, you can simply elect to render your name in its katakana or hiragana equivalent. Once you've selected a name that appeals to you, you might even have it engraved into a hanko (a seal or stamp always required in lieu of a handwritten signature for official or business–related documents) and officially register it in Japan. You will be issued a certificate legitimizing your seal, and the characters it bears, as legally valid and binding on any official document you affix it to in Japan. This would certainly make an impression on your Japanese friends or associates!

The Seven Keys to Communicating in Japan

The Seven Keys to Communicating in Japan

Our coauthor's name is one such unisex name, as Haru can be a man's or woman's name. One-kanji names are unusual and are typically unisex by sound.

This book provides a practical set of guidelines for people wishing to communicate professionally in Japan, following the model of the similar book by Kelm and Victor on Brazil. Good communication requires more than knowing the language. Haru Yamada, Orlando Kelm, and David Victor, seasoned cross-cultural trainers for businesspeople, provide a guide through Victor's LESCANT model (Language, Environment, Social Organization, Context, Authority, Nonverbal, and Time). Each chapter addresses one of these topics and demonstrates how to evaluate the differences between Japan and North America, presenting examples to help people avoid common communication mistakes. The book is generously peppered with photographs to provide visual examples. The authors complete the book with a case study chapter on a business interaction between Japanese and North Americans (NA). They then gathered comments from various NA professionals working in Japan and Japanese working with US professionals about the interactions in the case, providing helpful observations about the situation. The book straddles some language and communication topics, international relations, and reaches into the business community, a strong academic program at GU, presenting us with a new opportunity to reach a wider audience.

Forms that Work: Designing Web Forms for Usability clearly explains exactly how to design great forms for the web. The book provides proven and practical advice that will help you avoid pitfalls, and produce forms that are aesthetically pleasing, efficient and cost-effective. It features invaluable design methods, tips, and tricks to help ensure accurate data and satisfied customers. It includes dozens of examples - from nitty-gritty details (label alignment, mandatory fields) to visual designs (creating good grids, use of color). This book isn’t just about colons and choosing the right widgets. It’s about the whole process of making good forms, which has a lot more to do with making sure you’re asking the right questions in a way that your users can answer than it does with whether you use a drop-down list or radio buttons. In an easy-to-read format with lots of examples, the authors present their three-layer model - relationship, conversation, appearance. You need all three for a successful form - a form that looks good, flows well, asks the right questions in the right way, and, most important of all, gets people to fill it out. Liberally illustrated with full-color examples, this book guides readers on how to define requirements, how to write questions that users will understand and want to answer, and how to deal with instructions, progress indicators and errors. This book is essential reading for HCI professionals, web designers, software developers, user interface designers, HCI academics and students, market research professionals, and financial professionals. *Provides proven and practical advice that will help you avoid pitfalls, and produce forms that are aesthetically pleasing, efficient and cost-effective. *Features invaluable design methods, tips, and tricks to help ensure accurate data and satisfied customers. *Includes dozens of examples -- from nitty-gritty details (label alignment, mandatory fields) to visual designs (creating good grids, use of color). *Foreword by Steve Krug, author of the best selling Don't Make Me Think!
