    I can't read Japanese calligraphy, otherwise I'd see if I could help you out. Do you have a pic you could post? At the very least, I might be able to tell you which language it is.

    If you take a good picture of it and send it to me, I'll have my brother translate it for you. He was a linguist in the Navy for 28 years. If I remember correctly, he speaks 13 different languages and Chinese and Japenese are two of them.

    I have a student from Japan staying with us; show us what it is and I'll ask her to have a look...

    I have always wanted to learn how to speak Japanese. I did check for a class at our local community college. They don't offer Japanese. [​IMG]

    in japanese: それをタイプできれば私は私のレインコートによってそれを翻訳してもいいです。

    If my computer doesn't die before the bf gets home, I'll have him take a peek. He knows a lot of Japanese from his years in the Navy.
