Standard Certificate Layout 2
Shown above is the standard for layout 2. This template is ideal for instructors who wish do very minimal Japanese writing of there own. There's no area for the recipient's name, rank or date in the Japanese section. However they can be added as per your needs. This template will be tailored to your specific needs. As is customary with Japanese, the certificate begins on the right with the lines written vertically. The certificate is then read from right to left.
- Serial number - Daigo 第号. This is the location of the registration number. The kanji are commonly spaced so that you're
able to write or type the numbers.
- Diploma - Menjou 免状. It can also say Ninteisho 認定証 or Sho 証. Both mean Certificate. Another common kanji used in this section is 證, meaning Certificate as well.
- Award Text. Typically three lines of text. This particular pattern, roughly translated, says "This person is hereby conferred Dan rank as a result of this federation's examination". This will not necessarily be the same exact text with every template. Please specify weather this will be a dan rank or kyu rank certificate so we can adjust the writing accordingly.
- Issuing Authority. Depending on the situation this may show the parent organizations system headquarters or Hombu.
- School Name. This is typically the name of the dojo issuing the certificate. This area is optional.
- Award Text. This can be tailored to your specifications to be worded any way you want. On the custom template there will be a blank space for Recipient's Name, Rank and Date. This can be done in English or in Spanish.
- Signature Line. This typically will include the instructor's name and issuing authority and or school name printed bellow the line. More than one line can be added and they can be left blank as well.
