Correct Automatic Translation on Japanese Forms

When setting a language on forms, there is some automatic translation of common form labels—this is great and helps save time when doing multilingual work. However, in the Japanese translation, there's a bit of clunky wording:

  • First Name as 「ファースト ネーム」
  • Last Name as 「ラスト ネーム」

The fact that these are written as loan words isn't really accurate, as you'd expect

  • First Name: 名
  • Last Name: 

 

In fact, Marketo's own Japanese contact form uses the more common way of expressing given name/surname. Could this be updated in the product itself?
