Need help with international inquiry
« on: August 03, 2007, 09:39:07 AM »

Hey everybody,

If there is anyone here who is speaks/writes Japanese and can help me with translations/email for a Zendrum inquiry from Japan, please email me at zendrum@mindspring.com. He has sent his first email in English, but we're gonna have a hard time understanding each other. I'm already at the Free Translation website to get started with an initial reply, but soon as he asks the next question, I'll be headed up the deep creek without me paddle!

Any help or advice...different/better translation resource website?...will be appreciated!
Thanks very much and go well,
Gina

Okay, it's 20 minutes later...here's an update on what happens when you try to use the free translation website for English to Japanese:
English: Thank you very much and go well!
to Japanese: 非常にあなたに感謝して、元気になってください!
back to English: Please become fine in appreciation of you, very!

Yeah, 'fraid that's not going to work too well with a technical question...
Hmmmm.......
English: Yikes!
to Japanese: うわっ!

Bable fish translates it as:
Appreciating very in you, please become vigorous!

Not much help there either.

Suggest looking for the Japanese Consulate in Atlanta. They encourage business and often assist in contact information. I just got back from Okinawa, english is spoken very little. Also possibly contact a local High School. My kids took Japanese and learned Kanji (?). Could possibly get help from students looking for extra credit. Food for thought...
  Am currently in Mumbai, India with my Zendrum. My biggest problem is voltages and frequency issues on gear.
