People often ask me if I can do small translations for free. I’m afraid the answer to that is usually “no”.
But if you want to translate a few words from Japanese into English or vice versa and the results don’t have to be perfect, then why not give machine translation a try? Here’s a form you can use to translate short passages of text using Google’s online translator.
Yahoo’s Babel Fish translator is another free tool that you could try.
Some time soon I hope to have a searchable dictionary up and running on this website, but in the meantime if you just want one or two words translated into or from Japanese, try looking them up in the WWWJDIC online dictionary over at the Monash University website.
