Re: [SCA-JML] Re: Hrrm How Far is Quebec
- well on both the awards ive recieved they had oriental
style brush paintings or a japanese themed painting
with japaneseish looking caracters and a english
version on the back or as a seperate piece of paper. i
have to say im was tickled pink on both the aoa and
purple fret that someone took the time to make them at
least look japanese.
that having being said i would love to actually have
the proper japanese and a translation. I guess before
looking into what the wording is for various awards
and trying to do a translation with my ohhhhh so rusty
japanese...... i should ask has anyone tried this
before??? i imagine it shouldnt be too hard to hunt
down the awards wording, but has anyone done
translations and/or compliled them?? anything at all
would be interesting from any kingdom, but especially
midrealm awards/ translations would be helpful.( since
thats where i hail from)
i guess i should say my shodo is nothing to brag
about, and i have no idea of the volume of awards that
are given out to japanese personas here, but having
them in japanese would be quite supurb. i for one
would be willing to do as many as i can. atleast it
would be a start. right??
as for being able to read it.... well for one thing
evenif you cant read kanji most japanese personas
recognize kanji and hirigana vs fake letters. that
alone would mean quite a bit. second, if i had a piece
in kanji a translation and my dictionary you can bet
i would work till i could read it. i mean what an
incentive to learn!!
so any suggestion on wordings and translations???
