Ease of use
The Apple Japanese Language Kit contains everything you need to easily add Japanese to your documents. The kit can be used with your Apple Macintosh computer to run Japanese applications and include Japanese text in letters, presentations, and reports. You can even work with files created using KanjiTalk, Apple's Japanese version of the Macintosh operating system.
Whether you're a desktop publisher or business professional, you can use the Language Kit to create materials such as brochures, posters, business cards, presentations, and restaurant menus in Japanese. Students and teachers can use it to run interactive Japanese-language programs and produce compelling term papers in Japanese. Although the Japanese Language Kit does not translate text, it does let you easily input, edit, and print in Japanese.
The Japanese Language Kit works as an extension to Mac OS software version 7.1 or later. It also allows you to run Japanese applications. Because the Language Kit uses the operating system you already have, there is no need to store an additional system on your hard disk. The Japanese Language Kit also contains Kotoeri, the same easy-to-use input method that is included with KanjiTalk.
Almost every major software program has a version that has been localized for Japanese. All you need to run them is the Japanese Language Kit and System 7.1 or later. You can even use nonlocalized programs that take advantage of WorldScript, such as Nisus Writer, WordPerfect, and WorldWrite. WorldScript simplifies the way in which a single operating system can support multiple languages.
The Japanese Language Kit comes with three Kanji TrueType fonts, that produce high-quality output from any Macintosh compatible printer. Documentation is provided in both Japanese and English, and you can type using either the roman or the kana keyboard layout. These features make the Language Kit easy to use whether you're a native speaker or just learning Japanese.
