“In the spirit of the Brothers Grimm”
“Opens doors, familiar and surprising. A source of inspiration of the highest order.”
The three volumes of the “Comprehensive Japanese-German Dictionary”, now complete, offer on 7,523 double-column pages more than 130,000 main entries with several hundred thousand compounds and examples of usage, about 70,000 sample sentences (with sources) from newspapers and magazines, advertising, science and literature, specialized vocabulary (from architecture to flora and fauna, medicine and mathematics to law, sports, economics and finance), provenance and proven etymologies, proverbs and idiomatic expressions, historical and technical explanations. All main and sub-entries, compounds, typical usages and idioms are also given in Latin transcription and are thus accessible to everyone. Main entries are additionally marked as basic or advanced vocabulary.
The “Comprehensive Japanese-German Dictionary” was created through the close cooperation of many German and Japanese experts, and is a milestone for the lexicology of East Asian languages in Europe. Another quality of this new dictionary is the links it makes between the entries and the language of literature. When compiling the sample sentences from literature and media that make the dictionary so extraordinary, the editors not only drew on Japanese sources, but also on Japanese translations of German and international literature, for example "Momo" by Michael Ende, Goethe's "Faust", as well as works by Joanne K. Rowling and Franz Kafka. The dictionary will serve as a reliable, fundamental work of reference and support the advancement of German-Japanese relations on every level – political, social, commercial, scientific and cultural – for decades to come.
