Hi Ikuko and Casey,
welcome to the team, Ikuko. I am grad to see you here :)

Casey is right in his explanation. I would like to add there would be
other Japanese translators if lucky. Some of them may be listed at

One another tip: if you are working on wiki directly you would like to
warn other users using  {{inuse}} [1] which let the other know someone
is editing the page and avoid edit conflict.

Happy editing :)
