New Translators

canonv80sm
The latest Genius Japanese-English dictionary, which is found in nearly all electronic dictionaries, has some very interesting and local example sentences. Clearly a baseball fan had a hand in the writing of the dictionary, and perhaps an Osaka native. Among the sentences are the following:

彼は阪神タイガーズの監督のような口ぶりだった。
He talked as if he were the manager of the Hanshin Tigers.

阪神タイガーズのセ・リーグ優勝で関西中が沸き返った。
The Kansai region was excited about the Hanshin Tigers winning the Central League championship.

These and other sentences can be found in the best dictionaries and are on sale at GoodsFromJapan
- These are made for the domestic market in Japan and available outside of Japan only online. We stock the latest and best Canon and Casio models--and our prices are the best around.
