View topic - Confidence
I'm a beginner to Japanese.
I wanted to sew the word "confidence" on a T-short, so I found the literal translation as 自信. Is that a good translation to be a catchy one-word writing on a tshirt? Is there a good word that could look better?

But there has to be slight differences between English Confidence and Japanese 自信.
When first look at 自信 on a T-shirt, Japanese will consider, to be more precisely, "self-confidence".
Other candidates would be:
信用 trust, credit, safety to normally one matter
信頼 trust, reliance on general opportunities
In any words above, they have all positive meanings.
