The honorific forms are used to indicate difference in the social standing the speaker, the listener and the person being spoken about.  It is important to understand the origins and current status of a language to perform an effective Japanese translation.

While there is still a large rivalry between Japan and China, the Japanese translator must understand that the Japanese language includes borrowed Chinese vocabulary and the Chinese system of ideographic characters ( kanji ). However since this form of characters was inadequate to represent the inflected Japanese language, two phonetic syllabary known as Kana were introduced, Today the number of Kanji characters stands at 200 while phonetic kana characters are being used to represent modern pronunciation.
