Typing Kanji

Post by ika_squid » Sun 07.03.2005 2:52 pm

Kon'nichiwa. I just joined about an hour ago! I am curious if there is a site at which I can type in English and get Kanji which I can copy and type. Ihave a Japanese - English | English - Japanese Dictionary, so I can check to see if they are the right Kanji. Thanks for any help.

Translators don't always work. This one couldn't get me squid or crow. Thanks though.

Um...you are asking for a translator though.

Anywho, there's not a 100% proficent translator, or what-have-you.

No, I'm not asking for a translator. More of a dictionary capable of displaying kanji.

i would write up a HOWTO but i'm not a Windows person.
http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/japanese.html follow the EDICT link to the html version of the archives. look in the Windows software section for dictionaries that use the EDICT files. download the software and some of the EDICT files, read the documentation and off you go.

on Linux i use http://gjiten.sourceforge.net/ but i think there is a plain Jiten or Jjiten that's java based and will run anywhere, there's probably something similar under the Windows software section.

i'm definately an EDICT fan.
