Law/Patents - Law (general) / Japanese name in a foreign language document
English term or phrase: Takeshi
I have to translate in Japanese a legal document in which the name Takeshi appears in Romaji. As there are several options to writing this name in kanji, and I have no possibility to check the correct spelling of the name, would the phonetic transcription in katakana be acceptable legally? The document is a mandate in which the client empowers her Japanese friend to help her with some procedures. Would this type of mandate be acceptable for Japanese authorities?
Thank you

Japanese translation:タケシ (takeshi)
Explanation:
I would suggest to write in katakana (romaji). As long as they can identify the particular person, there should be no problems. I think that the translation is only a supportive document for the original to facilitate the legal procedure.
