"For developers of mobile, web or desktop applications and operating systems, as well as typographic developers, this book is a must-have up-to-date (even predictive) multilingual computing development reference work. As it stands, costly as it is, the book is a highly recommended purchase as the "off-the-shelf" encyclopedic reference on information processing for CJKV languages. "

"Reading CJKV Information Processing I learned quite a bit more about the issues involved in things like character encoding and typography for every language, not just these four. But in dealing with CJKV specifically I've found that Lunde's work is indispensable. It is not just my go to reference, it's essentially my only reference. If any other works do come my way, this is the standard against which they will be judged. "

"I've kept Ken Lunde's CJKV Information Processing with me as I worked on enabling softare in East Asian languages since it was JAPAN.INFO and downloadable from FTP servers in the late 1980s. There's no better place to find everything you need to know about the key technical issues when dealing with Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese. I've referred to it when building speech recognition, Web authoring and now Web browsing softare. The additional content in the Second Edition makes it well worth the upgrade from the first."

"This is a book that deserves a place in any library with holdings on linguistics, computer programming, typesetting, type design, Unicode, information processing, and--of course--any of the CJKV languages. A tour de force and a delight to read. Ken Lunde is a master technical communicator."
