I'm trying to translate a few lines of English into Japanese. I was wondering if somebody here could help me so that it makes sense.

This is puzzle related.

Please pm me if you can help.

thanks -mike

I think what he's asking for is a manual translation since you can't always predict what will be written in the ending language, especially if you can't read it.

It seems like babelfish uses only Kanji, I think I'm looking for Hiragana.

Sorry, I can't help you then. And my friend who is really good at Japanese isn't going to be on tonight. He's using all of his DSL power to upload out 40 minute Video Production final up to YouTube.

I am not sure this will help, but you may want to give Google Language Tools a try.

here's what I was doing, an Evil Twin for Macky. Thanks to Paul (pkbayashi) and his mother and her friends for the translation.

I didn't want to post it here until he recieved it because I think he lurks here sometimes and I wanted it to be a surprise.

Thanks Tim and David, it doesnt take long to actually make the box, the design is really what takes the time. I'm not sure how long it took in photoshop, Paul and I went through 3 translations.

The good news is that Macky said the translation was perfect.

Kimi ga kono eiga no shujinkoo na n daroo?

"¿Conjeturo que usted es el héroe de esta película?"

"I guess you are the hero of this movie?"

It's from Cannibal the Musical. The American Indians (not Americans from India, the native Americans; er not like me, the people that were here in America before it was America (not the Vikings)lol) in the movie were played by Asians that were speaking Japanese. They carried katanas and did karate while wearing war paint and feathers.

I just thought it was funny.

Funny translation to spanish! :):)

¿Imagino que serás tú el héroe de esta película?

Anyway, my english's skills are also awful, hehehehe.

Btw, there are a few guys that are able to talk or even write in spanish right?

Who are those?
