English term or phrase: Hitachi
I need this translated and written in Japanese script
Aida Hakobyan
Japanese translation:日立
Explanation:
The "Chinese characters" shown above are used to write the company name "Hitachi" in Japanese. The literal translation of the characters is "day" (prounounced "hi") and "stand up" or "arise" ("tachi, from the verb "tatsu" = "to stand up"), hence, a poetic rendering of the meaning might be something like "the start of the day", with the feeling of the common American expression "Rise and Shine!!!".
However, the word "Hitachi" is primarily used as the name of the big electrical appliance maker here in Japan. Hope this is useful. Haslov
