Only talk in Japanese.

It's not nearly as complex as English, but as usual we find ways to screw it up.

Only talk in Japanese.

Post by Commander Sparx »

Well, this is how you do it:

You do you’re message, and then do it in Japanese below. By using this web site:

よく、これはそれをいかにするかである: メッセージ、次に次にする日本語のそれをする。このウェブサイトの使用によって:

Babelfish and other online translators are notoriously incorrect. Especially in Japanese, they cannot take into account levels of politeness, gender, or common phrases - instead, it's usually translated word by word which ends up making no sense or sounding unnatural.

What you posted is a perfect example. I would rewrite it like this:

Ah, yes... we're masters of the box language.

Actually, you don't have Japanese encoding. Usually you can install it by going to View > Encoding > (More) > Japanese, and it'll take care of the rest by itself.

I'm running late for class or I'd point out how wrong that translation is and correct it.

Then install the Japanese language files... how many more times are people going to complain about seeing question marks/boxes?
