Thread: anyone know a japanese kanji translation program?

  1. #1

    Default anyone know a japanese kanji translation program?

    I am trying to learn to read japanese and would like to know if theres any decent easily installable translation program for japanese kana to english... or a easily installable program that allows you to type japanese characters.

    I already have a good grasp on hirigana and katatana, but that doesn't help when I run into a kanji sumbol!

    I tried searching for a decent program my self and came upon JWPce, which wouldn't install from the makefile... gave me "nothing to be done for /jwpce/makefile"

    anyways as this is a multinational forum I was wondering if someone knew of a good program for this?

    Is there a software, where you could just write the kanji using a trackpad or mouse and it would translate it?
