View Full Version : Anyone speak Japanese?

I was hoping to translate "fat man" and "little boy" into Japanese. Both characters and phonetically (romaji?).
I found some services that will translate the individual words, but I'm not sure if that's the way you'd actually say/write it in Japanese, or if it's transliterated.

Well thanks, but I already found stuff that will translate individual words. And that's what I'm going with for now. But I was trying to double check to see how the phrases would fit together to a native speaker.
There's the old game where you use an automatic translator to go from English to language X, and back again, and you end up with really weird stuff instead of the words you started with.
I don't want to end up with something like this. (http://www.blahblahfish.com/mangle/show/173491)

You can sometimes find help at university language departments.
