Okay RallyPoint, I need some help here. I am looking for help to learn about how dates are written in countries like China and South Korea for my job. I'm working on a project that requires me to send emails around the world to the different business lines. The messages are translated into each countries' native language except for the part where we give dates. Any help would be awesome!

SGT Ben Keen - I wish we would just convert to straight Julian (1--365/366) and be done with it.

Sgt Aaron Kennedy, MS - You and me both. After starting this project, I started to wish the world would all just go to 24 hour clock and use a simplified calendar.

SGT Ben Keen - I think I'm "overly pragmatic" at times. Gets me into trouble. Just imagine how much hate I would get if I were SecNav or SecDoD....

SGT Ben Keen Most Asian cultures do everything biggest to smallest / most important to least important. Such as year month day... last name first name... country state city. Source: I am a Korean speaker and my wife is a Korean Native who also speaks Chinese.
