(I already asked the question on graphicdesign but people redirected me here. I guess there are people with that kind of expertise here.)
I have a PDF book to be translated in Japanese, and what wondering which fonts to use. My main languages are French and English and I have no experience with asian fonts. I would not be able to say if a font is OK for reading a Japanese book or not.
For example, in English or French books (Latin-alphabet typography), the font types normally used are serif font (Times Roman, Caslon, Bodoni and Garamond). Other font types would not be appropriate.
Is there such thing as Serif font or Roman fonts in Japanese?
Do you have any suggestions for a common Japanese Roman font?
