Perhaps that's an extreme transcription of 'sugoi' (amazing) or 'sukoshi' (a bit).

He still works with Navel, but by freelance contract.
Suzuhira-san is a woman.

Is that so. I always thought "hiro" was a masculine name. Though even to me it kinda unisex.

aohige - thanks for the translation ^_^

Well, first of all "Hiro" isn't a complete name.
Normally, there's more to it like Hiroyuki, Hiroshi, Hirokazu, etc.
Of course, there's female version of that. Hiroko, Hiromi, etc.

But you're right that when "Hiro" is used as a nickname, it's usually male.
That's why I assumed Suzuhara was a male, since I know nothing about her, or Navel.

My real name has a hiro in it too, btw. So does one of my aunt.
It's rediculously common in Japanese names.

Paraphrasing everything now days ^_^. Thanks again for the info. I've never really tried to learn everything about her too by the way. Just artist and the titles they have released.

You sure they meant Japanese?
Alphabet for "YI" doesn't even exist in Japanese.
I believe they were just writing it similar to the way they pronounced it.

Thanks for the help anyhow. Now that I read Li Jianliang's post, I think it was indeed a crude writing of "sugoi" (not native english speaker, she was)

@Fukyuu

In which context? The structure is [two people = futari][main topic marker = ha/wa][to forget (completely)]. But that phrase alone doesn't mean a definite thing, it's in need of a context if you want to know the true meaning. At any rate, it's probably "the two will be forgotten", but to be completely sure a proper context is needed.

Question random kana question

=D
hey guys, i'm a new Japanese language student and being the geek that i am, i've been pausing the intro and endings to anime just to try to read the credits (XD).

I have a question. The Ending credits of Baccano has:
アニプレックス
ムービック
ブレインス・ベース

first one i assume is "Aniplex"
the third is something like "Brains Base" (?)

in any case, I couldn't get the second one so i tried the google language thingie and i got "Game". Getting to the point, anyone know why muubikku (ムービック) = game?

blah, the firestorm closed down the campus so i can't ask my professor
any takers?

Yeah, I agree with you, a context is needed to get the actual translation.

Wanted: Japanese technical document translation services!

The document needing translation is a Japanese technical document in PDF. It's one of several programmer manuals for an electronic robot toy made in Japan. I've checked with the manufacturer, and they don't have an English translation of this document. The end use of the translated document will be for education and research.

I tried copy/paste the text into babelfish or google translate and it doesn't seem to work for most of the pages.

Anyway, I need 8 pages translated to English out of this document. Here's a link to the document: http://www.kondo-robot.com/pdf/RCB3CommandRef.pdf
Specifically, I need pages 6, 8-12, 14, and 15.

Can anyone do this within a couple of weeks?
How much would you charge?

Did I write this correctly in Japanese? Am I at least close?

In English:
I really am a graduate student
I want to become a high school teacher.

Here is the Nihongo I created:
私はだいくいんせいですよ
ぼくはこうとう学校の先生になりたい

Is this correct? Should I leave out the の?

Most of the pages? Try more like "any of the sentances". Babelfish can't even translate a simple sentance from Japanese into English (or from any Asian language, for that matter). It is basically useless for Asian languages.

Sorry, can't help you with the translation, personally...I only know a little Japanese myself.

On the first phrase: "University" is 「だいがく」, so if you want to say a "university student", you have to add 「せい」 to the word, so the result would be 「だいがくせい」. I think you were trying to mix だい (big) and がくえん (school), but it's だいがく. The えん in がくえん means "park, garden". The がく part is the one properly meaning "study, knowledge", etc (学).

On the second phrase: High school is simply 高校 (こうこう), so if you want to say "High school teacher", it should be 高校先生 (こうこうせんせい).

So, finally, the phrases should be:

私はだいがくせいですよ。
ぼくは高校先生になりたい。

graduate student is 大学院生 or 院生
high school teacher would be 高等学校の先生 or 高校の先生. Umm, I think it sounds more natural with (phrase maker?) の added here.

Do you use it in formal situation?
When you add よ (depends on intonation) to 私は大学院生です you're like saying "I'm a graduate student, you know?"
I think better not to add よ. Also be careful, use watashi, boku, ore, etc appropriately.
