When Japanese students learn English, they are told "English has a structure of S-V-C where number of C could be zero to two".

Japanese sentences also can be analyzed as S-V-O format. But I think it is wrong to understand Japanese in S-V-O format these days. Because S-V-O format is a way to understand western language and not for Japanese language originally.

Language makes Culture and Culture makes Language.

Ask professional translator for your business work. You can not get useful business resources for free.
