    Japanese Law Translation Project

    The Ministry of Justice strives to translate the principal Japanese laws and regulations into foreign languages, starting with English. Efforts are made to provide the translated Japanese laws and regulations with the international community. The project has a two-fold: translated Japanese laws and a standard bilingual legal dictionary.  Approximately two hundred laws have been translated as of April 2010. The standard bilingual dictionary is downloadable to the Notepad, PDF, and Word Processor files and includes established legal terms with English translations and examples.  The Website can be viewed in either Japanese or English. 

     

    Logo Mark

    The logo mark is symbolizing a "bridge" in the hopes to promote the understanding of Japanese laws and regulations for international business and to gain trust from the international community by disseminating information about Japanese legal system and expertise.
