At the time of writing this post, I do not know any Japanese.
I went to http://www.google.com and clicked on Language Tools.
I then used the facility to translate the following from English into Japanese.
The structure of Unicode
Both are beautiful
I then translated the result from Japanese into English.
Interestingly, the word Unicode goes through in Latin characters.
I wondered whether that is because there is no character for Unicode or whether there is one and it is just not in the database being used for the translation.
I have since learned that the word Unicode could be expressed phonetically using Katakana characters.
Yet I am wondering whether there is a complete character for the word Unicode and, if there is not, could one be devised?
