If you're completely unfamiliar with Japanese, distinguishing names between their original writing and correct English translations can be extremely difficult. Even for those who can read the language, Japanese names can be written various different ways, and finding the correct translation can prove challenging. The list provided below compiles the names of many game music composers and arrangers, and their English equivalents. Before you can begin comparing names from your CD's, though, you'll need to be familiar with a few words and characters:

作曲 = composer
編曲 = arrangement/arranger
作詞 = lyrics
歌 = singer (literally "song")
