Japanese Law TM and Glossary

Below is a Felix translation memory (TM) and glossary created from the Standard Bilingual Dictionary of Japanese Statutes. The source language of the TM and glossary is Japanese, and the translation language is English.

The Standard Bilingual Dictionary is part of an effort by the Japanese government to translate its laws and a substantial portion of its case law into English. The dictionary contains official translations of terms found in Japanese laws, as well as example source and translation sentences. The terms have been collected into a Felix glossary, and the examples into a Felix TM.
