New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm working on a client web site right now where I'll need to set all the words on the screen (ie. buttons, marketing text, etc) in Japanese. Has anyone had any experience setting type in Japanese? Beyond the words themselves, what other sensitivities should one be aware of?
They'll translate the text for us - It sounds like they'll most likely send over a Word doc with the Japanese text. Is it as easy as cut and paste, and tweaking the font from there?
In a related question, isn't there a Japanese cut of Univers?
