Ulrich Apel studied Japanology, Ethnology, German as a Foreign Language and Sociology in Munich, and continued the studies at Osaka University. For his doctor’s thesis, he carried out research on Japan’s futures studies and futures planning. The lack of an up-to-date dictionary for such a topic led to his electronic Japanese-German dictionary project WaDokuJT. He carried out research at the National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, with a scholarship by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and continued it as guest researcher and as project researcher.  He was research assistant at Tübingen University, and scientific assistant at Zurich University.
