Promotion of Translation of Japanese Laws
The Ministry of Justice is working to translate Japanese laws into foreign languages and to make them available online, and English translations of more than 370 laws have been made available on the Japanese Law Translation website
, which was created specifically for that purpose. With the goal of uniformity in the translation of Japanese laws, the Ministry of Justice has compiled the Standard Legal Terms Dictionary as a guideline, with bilingual entries for legal terms in both Japanese and English.
In the future, as well, the Ministry hopes to continue publishing revised editions of the dictionary and information on English translations of the law in subsequent additions to this website.
