It's really cool to see some Japanese audio hobbyist sites translated into English, unfortunately some nuances of what you are trying to convey is lost by the machine translator, and some stuff is well... completely garbled..

Perhaps you could translate the pages into English and fix the errors and create permanent pages that are comprehensible to us.

I am very curious about what is going on in the Japanese tube audio scene and have some copies of MJ which are incomprehensible except for the great pictures and schematics.

You can always learn Japanese...



Hmmm... it seems I cannot write in Japanese in the forum? No unicode font support?

Anyway, I can only hope that I can write Japanese as well as the online translation machines...

Maybe something for my retirement years.. I've seriously considered it, but even the most basic command of the written language requires more effort than I have time or energy to devote...

Probably as much an issue with your browser as the forum which probably doesn't support it either.

Default Translations..

My wife pictured here, was born here in Argentina, myself an American. She is fluent in English and Spanish (Castillian), myself I use translator programs sometimes. She clued me into a grammatically correct program.....I had tried dozens.
Try multiple programs until you find one that is complex enough to deal with the nuances of grammar.

Thanks for your attention to Japanese tube audio scene.

I can translate it into English with an assist of machine translation if you send me the article
in a high resolution scanned file. I can return the translated file via E-Mail, but cannot via
Web page due to copyright.

After WW2, most of Japanese social systems had been changed
"Westernized" but Japanese language is still continuing
swallowing foreign vocabularies

BTW, one of my old friend set up his Web page for DHT SE in English
as below. He is a pure amateur like me, not commercial basis.

It's always nice to stumble upon a Japanese page as there is usually a great deal of enthusiasm for their subject.

Keep up the good work ja2dhc.

Figured out why Japan is so big in electronics. In Japanese part of the word for "Japan" looks like a 7 segment display (like in a calculator) and the other part of that word looks like a diode...

I'm just a single language American, there's just too many other languages and no obvious choice to learn...

Hello, wa2ise, I believe you are a Radio Amateur like me.

As you may know you can refer the below URL where you can get Japanese > English machine translation of a Japanese Web page to input the target url.

http://www.excite-webtl.jp/world/eng...%96%7C+%96%F3+

> "Japan" looks like a 7 segment display (like in a calculator) and the other part of that word looks like a diode...

It's true. These characters were invented in China about 4000years ago. Japan imported these Chinese characters about 2000years ago.

7 segment denotes "SUN(solar)" and diode denotes "TRUNK BASE of TREE (origin of tree)". Therefore two characters denotes "The place of sun rising (origin)" since Japan was believed located in the most eastern location in the world.
