Terms for New Techology

Postby Just Barb » Fri 05.30.2008 6:32 pm

I’ve been working in a couple of Japanese textbooks so that I don’t forget too much over the summer. I noticed that some of the words pertaining to technology are starting to seem a little dated. I suspect that the computers aren’t connected to the internet. Most folks didn’t have a website.People are still listening to records. I don’t think that they have cell phones.

Anyway, it would be nice to know some of these words and phrases for more modern everyday devices. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much!

Internet - インターネット or ウェッブ
website - サイト or ホームページ
cell phone - 携帯電話 or 携帯 for short.

I found a big list of computer terms on the Japanese Wikipedia.

The "compdic" online dictionary has about 15,000 computing/telecomms terms. You can
access it via WWWJDIC:

My summary of online dictionaries/glossaries at: http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/onlinejdic.html has several other computing glossaries available.

Thanks, Rich! I can’t believe how quickly you got back to me! That was just the sort of terms I was hoping for!

Thanks, doinkies! That looks like a really great link. I’ve only been taking Japanese for a couple of terms so I don’t read that well. I’m saving the link for when I’m better.

Jim- Thank you so much! I use WWWJDIC so much anyway! Ihadn’t been aware that it had so many computing and telecom words in it!

The dictionary links page is such a treasure trove!
