Hi!! I have a few questions to ask the people here!!

I was wondering which online japanese dictionary is the best, and which ones you guys use (I gave my dictionary to my sister since she is studying Japanese in uni).

Also what do your parents or family think of you translating or doing fansubs for free. I told my family about what I am doing (and it's for the greater good). And they are like "You are doing things for FREE????" and I just managed to backup what I am doing saying "It's to practise my japanese" which I find a bit lame but true .... >_<

Anyways, any advice will be great!!! =D

Well, if we charged money they'd just go elsewhere (not to mention fansubbing for money, the last I checked, was illegal). Like what Narutofan does (I think that's the site). They make people pay to be able to download what is on their site... thing is nearly everything on their site is already licensed. I don't understand how they aren't getting prosecuted. :o

As for the dictionary... I don't have one or know much about em... I wish I could afford one, though.

Not sure which online japanese dictionary is the best, but I use a combination of Jim Breen's WWWJDIC Japanese-English Dictionary Server and ALC.

My family do not know that I'm doing translations, but I don't think they would stop me even if they do know about it ^^

my parents have no idea that i'm a part of this. although if they did know, they won't really care, as long as i prioritize my academics.

plus my mom would probably think it's generous of me. :p

Hi! I use Jim Breen's dictionary and Suteki. ^^; I find them extremely useful. The J-Talk Converter is also extremely nifty...it has the "detailed word info" option, so...^^;

Also, my parents don't know yet, but they'd just probably ask me what exactly we do and that's it. ^^;

"You are doing things for FREE????"
Hahaha! So many people think the same way. ;P
