By the way, the premise of this ruby is to aim to assist for the foreigners who need to unilaterally assimilate in Japan and survive. Or, it seems to be a means for the convenience of one-way information that the Japanese need only obtain necessary information from foreigners.

However, even if a foreigner becomes a Japanese, they do not lose their identity. And what is really needed for mutual understanding is to show interest in foreign languages from Japanese people.  And by the mutual understanding, a more highly stable society will be formed. Even at the time, each culture should survive as it is and should interact with each other while being respected.

On top of that, mutual communication should be emphasized for coexistence and co-prosperity. In such a time, it will be a evidence of respect to the each ethnic culture that documents are described independently of each other without mixing with other languages.

And being designed to communicate with other languages will become increasingly important. In that case, I think that some of the electronic file creation methods of the present invention will be a precedent for communicating with each other for the purpose of coexistence and mutual prosperity.
