PT with JP - Common Terms & Phrases
« on: January 02, 2014, 05:01:56 PM »
Pretty sure many players are already doing that on a regular basis. But there are times when one might run into a language barrier, even with auto-translate and not all of them use auto-translate. So here we can compile the most common used terms, phrases, etc. to make playing with JP players easier. 

If anybody has any contribution, correction, suggestion, addition, feel free to add. Actually for those who are more adept in Japanese, there are some things I'd like to ask translation of, if it's no trouble that is. ^_^;

Like terms or phrases for Crystal Tower to be precise..

Main boss / Behemoth = ベヒ (behi) Behemoth
Tower / Pillar = ??
Adds = 雑魚 (zako)*  - small fry, fish
Iron Giant = 巨人 (kyojin) - titan / giant

**Correction. Zako, not Sago. ARG no wonder it didn't appear. >w<; the source I copied it from put in the wrong hiragana. /flails/


JP IME Keyboard shortcuts:
Alt + Shift cycles the language
Ctrl + Capslock sets it to Hiragana mode
Alt + Capslock sets it to Katakana mode
Ctrl + Shift turns off/on the IME and just uses normal keyboard input


Forming Parties:

Please invite me? - Sassotte kudasai / さっそって ください
Can I join? - PT ni haittemo ii? / Sankashiteiidesuka? / PT に はいっても いい? / さんかしていいですか?
"____" wants to party with us – "____" ga kono PT ni hairitai no / "_____" が この PT に ひありたい の

Sad laife that I can't applaud one person twice within 1 hour @@

Pretty useful for understanding certain strategies that the Japanese use. Usually I just use the hiragana mode in-game then change it to katakana using the down key.

Gonna try to polish my Japanese if I have a suitable slot for 2nd year Japanese from April on wards @@ Now... time to decipher Japanese slang...

- Updated with more phrases, terms. 
- Included Reinhart's translations link for terms
- Corrected Adds hiragana. It's ざこ not さご。 I was wondering why the hiragana from the guide didn't let me form the word. =w=; So this is why.
