JTPA: Japanese Technology Professionals Association
May 27th seminar
Jointly hosted by Housei University
CJKV Information Processing
Ken Lunde, Sr. Computer Scientist at Adobe Systems, Inc. and author of “CJKV Information Processing”, will outline the basics of large character sets and encodings, which is a must for developers of international/multilingual applications.
He will also cover issues related to GB 18030-2000, which is a government-mandated character set standard from Mainland China that has far-reaching implications. GB 18030-2000 is thus an important topic for software developers worldwide, given the potential of the Mainland Chinese market.

CJKV Information Processing (O’Reilly) December 1998
This definitive guide tackles difficult issues faced when dealing with complex Asian languages — Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese — in the context of computing or Internet services. It contains revised information from Ken Lunde’s first book, Understanding Japanese Information Processing, as well as coverage of three additional languages and how they impact Internet resources such as the Web, HTML, XML, Java, and Adobe Acrobat.
Adobe Acrobat product CD, starting from Version 5, has included Chapter 1 of this book in PDF from the English editions. The Japanese and Chinese ones were included in Acrobat 6.0 and later.
Understanding Japanese Information Processing (O’Reilly) September 1993
This book provides detailed information on all aspects of handling Japanese text on computer systems. It covers everything from the origins of modern-day Japanese to the latest information on specific emerging computer encoding standards. Appendices provide additional reference material: a code conversion table, character set tables, mapping tables, an extensive list of software sources, a glossary, and more.
