  1. 1. Dat a Ser vices, Inc. Computer Services for Global Direct Marketing www.dataservicesinc.com 1-800-432-4066 Japan-Complete Data Processing from Data Services 1-410-546-2206 Direct Mailers targeting Japan face a variety of challenges: Language challenges Multi-byte processing challenges Japanese postal challenges. Japan-Complete data processing from Data Services meets all these challenges and provides the traditional address hygiene services you've come to rely upon in your direct mail data processing. The Language Challenge Japan originally borrowed its written language from China. The Chinese characters, called Kanji, were later supplemented by two additional character sets based on the way Japanese syllables sounded when they were pronounced. These two additional character sets, Katakana and Hiragana, sound the same but are written differently and used for different purposes; just as a lower case 'a' and an upper case 'A' sound the same in English, but are written completely differently. Romanji (or Romaji) is a Romanized version of the Hiragana or Katakana character sets. Japan-Complete from Data Services is capable of handling mixed files containing Romanji and Japanese characters. We offer: Table matching to determine name sequence for normalization Gender Coding The Multi-byte Challenge Because many of the Kanji characters are encoded in two or more bytes, Japanese can be a chal- lenge for traditional North American and European data processing systems. Japan-Complete from Data Services is designed to handle all forms of Japanese characters. However, challenges often occur in the ink-jetting or laser-imaging process with addressing your mail. We strongly recommend you send a sample to your imaging partner to see if they can ink-jet or laser-print in the Japanese character sets well before your drop date. (Over)

Computer Services for Global Direct Marketing www.dataservicesinc.com 1-800-432-4066 1-410-546-2206 The Japanese Postal Challenge Did you know that Japanese homes were formerly numbered not by geographic sequence, but according to when they were built? The next-higher number than your house would not necessarily be next-door, but might be a few blocks away. The good news is that Japanese postmen have very good memories, and the mail delivery service is excellent. Although the numbering system has changed, Japan still has its share of irregularities within the postal system.
