  • That is rude in Japan, so you should be careful.

rudeは、人に対しても使いますが、「マナー違反」という意味でもよく使われます。
That's rude.で、「それはマナー違反ですよ」となります。
「~したほうがいいですよ」と相手に促す時は、shouldを使いましょう。
must や had betterは強すぎるので、偉そうな感じになってしまいます。
相手がよほど親しい人(恋人や家族)でない限りは、使わない方が無難です。

  • That's actually rude here in Japan, so you should probably be careful about that.

    play icon

  • People would be offended by that here in Japan, so you should take care.

英訳1:ここで使われている〈considered + 形容詞〉の形は、「…と見なさせる」という意味になります。
なお、maybe you should...という言い方もおすすめです。単にYou should...というよりソフトな口調になるので、注意ではなくアドバイスとして伝わります。

英訳2:actuallyで、「(それって)実は…」というニュアンスを表現することができます。

英訳3:be offended by ...は「…で気分を害する/腹を立てる」という意味です。

その他の表現:
- Japanese people find that offensive, so maybe you should be careful with that.

  • That is considered rude in Japan. You may want to be aware of doing that.

  • People in Japan may think it’s impolite. You don’t want to do that.

    play icon

1)「それは日本では失礼にあたるよ。しちゃう時は気をつけた方がいいね」
2)「日本人にとってそれは失礼にあたるよ。しない方がいいよ。」

not politeは「礼儀正しくない=失礼」としました。

まだ日本に来て数年なので、まだまだ時々「そういうことやっちゃダメ」と妻に怒られることがあります。例えば、

ラッピング付きの頂き物もらった本人を前にビリビリと破いて開けてしまった。

言い訳)→ビリビリと豪快に開ける方が逆にもらった喜びの表現になっていると思う

裸足で他人の家にあがる

言い訳)→家は靴を履いたまま入るもの(アメリカ)なので、つい普段から油断して靴下を履かないで出かけてしまうことがある。

習慣の違いには気をつけたいですね。

  • Please remember that in Japan that is considered very rude.

  • That is not something that would go down very well in Japan.

    play icon

You can point out that some things are not acceptable in Japan as they may be in other countries. You could identify the phrase, word or activity and explain exactly what is not acceptable. 'To go down well' means a phrase or activity that would be welcomed.
他国で受け入れられていても、日本では受け入れられないこともあることを指摘するフレーズです。フレーズ、単語、またはアクティビティをいって、受け入れられないものを正確に説明することができます。 「go down well」とは、歓迎される言葉や活動を意味します。

You can use words like "be careful of" or "avoid" to help the person understand that they should refrain from doing/saying something that is offensive. To explain why, you can say, "it is considered rude in Japan", "people consider it impolite" or "someone may be offended".
「気をつけてください」や「回避する」のような言葉を使い、失礼なことをやらないように、言わないように伝えることができます。。 理由を説明するには、 "it is considered rude in Japan", "people consider it impolite" や "someone may be offended". と言うことができます。

  • Be careful, that is considered rude here in Japan.

  • Be mindful of your actions whilst being here, it might be considered rude!

    play icon

  • Don't do that, we might still be respectful towards you, but we actually think it is very rude.

    play icon

With the above statements you can help your friend when he/she is doing something culturally incorrect in Japan. After stating that what they are doing is incorrect, you could maybe help them to correct their behavior. You could say "Be careful, that is considered rude here in Japan. Rather do..."and then you could show them. You can use the word "mindful" instead of careful. This indicates that you would like them to think before they take action. Hope this was helpful!

  • In Japan that is considered to be very rude so just be careful when saying/doing that.

  • Japanese culture finds that to be rude so just be careful.

    play icon

if you would like to explain to someone that something in japan comes off very rude and for them to be careful, you can say something like "In Japan that is considered to be very rude so just be careful when saying/doing that." By using the word "careful" in our sentence, this tell the other person to be cautious when doing/saying something.

  • Be careful that is considered rude in Japan.

The first two examples are more or less the same with a movement of, "be careful," either to the beginning or end of the sentence. The last example is using the phrase, "to be considered," which talks about the perspective of whoever is the object of the sentence.

それは日本じゃ失礼にあたるよ。

thatを動名詞にして、主語を最初からはっきりさせるのもいいですね。
例:Visiting at night is considered rude in any country.
夜に訪問するのはどこの国でも失礼にあたる。
