Finding right keyword in Japanese

Standard

I noticed that my first post “OR option on searching YAJ” could be a bit advanced for some of the people from messages from my friends.

Having no trouble reading Japanese as a Japanese, it tends to happen (^^;.
Thank you Kate and Cookie for your advice!

So, today I will write more basic stuffs, how to find the right keyword when you are searching on YAJ.

The google translate site can be a wonderful tool to use when you find keyword.

Go to the google translate, and set the translate into language (where the red square and the arrow in the picture) as Japanese if it is not set as is.

Then in the space under the source language (where the red square under “English” in the picture), write the keyword you would want to know in Japanese.

I tried following 9 keywords “photo”, “DVD“, “CD“, “posters”, “pinups”, “shirts“, “T-shirts”, “box”, “key chains“, “signed items” and got almost everything right.

I will list the translation for the above keywords here below.

photo                     写真
DVD                         DVD
CD                             CD
poster                     ポスター
pinups                     ピンナップ
shirts                       シャツ
T-shirts                 Tシャツ
box                           box
key chains             キーホルダー
signed (items)     サイン入り

If you have other keywords you would want to have listed here, let me know, I will just add them here ;).

For those last 3 keywords “box” “key chains” and “signed (items)” they are not the result of the google translation, since this one above will come out with better (more) result on YAJ.

  1. I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your blog. It seems like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Many thanks

    • Hi there. Thank you for the comment.
      I am not sure if that is the browser issue or not……. Hope I can tell.
      There is a notification from my friend that the site was not loading and displayed about a month ago but not exactly the same issue with what you have I guess.
      By the way I am not updating this blog anymore but at this link here
