Hello All

That's it! As a small agency, we finally venture into Eng into Japanese and Chinese. We treat these languages with... respect and awe!

We have received our first very short translation into Japanese and now need to send it to the client.

Question is: what is the most usual font type that you would recommend for the delivery this job in a Word format?

We work on Macs. Our client works on PC. They'll pass it to their web department who may work on either, so we would like to avoid them coming back to us with a "we can't see the text" problem.

The translation is, at the moment, in a mix of "MS Gothic" and "MS Mincho". Should we leave it as is? Mac offers Arial Unicode. Is it the way to go?

Thank you!

MS Gothic, MS Mincho, Arial Unicode Mar 20, 2009

all three are available in Windows XP. I think, they are installed with Microsoft Office (Arial Unicode is for sure).
