I'm writing this email to discuss Japanese character request that we received from our customer. Hope this email finds you well.
In Japanese, there are 3 different characters such as Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. In total, the number of characters that we use deal with would be gazillion. English words are usually recognized by the first alphabet in dictionary whereas Japanese dictionaries categorize words by term's first pronunciation. Check the below example;
|日本語||Japanese||nihongo||ni => に|
|二輪車||Motorbike||nirinsha||ni => に|
These 3 words should belong to に as we pronounce them the same. However, what happens is that in Glossary, they are categorized under different places.
Even though we try to register them manually, Glossary doesn't allow us because it doesn't recognize its pronunciation. See below.
If we allow this, millions of pages will be created and these dislocations happen. This is not practical for Japanese users. Would it be possible if Glossary provides an option to disable check the first character?
