English-Japanese translations

Today (June 30; yes, this is very late) was the same as yesterday, except instead of basketball I had class. Lunch was the same, dinner was the same. Loved them.

For everyone's benefit and particularly for those coming to Japan, here is some useful info on how to translate between English and Japanese.

Firstly, I use http://translate.google.com for English to Kanji and Romaji, and Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana to English.  It also translates full websites; just enter the website's URL (or address) in the input box.

I use http://www.dicts.info/2/english-japanese_romaji.php for English-to-Romaji and vice versa.

Then I use this for Romaji to Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji: http://www.cs.technion.ac.il/~danken/kanjidic.html.

And lastly I use http://nihongo.j-talk.com/kanji/ for Kanji to Romaji and English.

I suggest you to consult different dictionaries because sometimes they give different meanings.  I do.

I haven't tried http://alc.co.jp.
