Rules of the community: ☆ Credit random_jblogs if you take any blog translations. ☆ No bashing of the artists is allowed. ☆ Never ask me "When will you translate this blog's entry?!" XD
But what is random_jblogs?!: ☆ It's a community which will publish translations of random Japanese blogs~! ☆ Most of them are actors from dramas and movies, but I sometimes share singers's blogs too ☆ I'm NOT Japanese, so my translations might contain minor mistakes. ☆ I post about 8 entries per day. But I don't like pressure (￣○￣;) ☆ You can find the full list of artists in the sidebar, and in the menu. ☆ I'm not aiming for comments, but I'm way more motivated when I feel read. ☆ I don't translate every entries from every artists (￣ω￣;)
But, some random blogs will often appear, because I'm obviously biased haha:
Additional notes: I'm used to keep some Japanese words in my translations. I always write them in italic.
Expressions: ♣ Yoroshiku onegaishimasu → Literally, please treat me well ♣ Itadakimasu → Said before a meal ♣ Gochisousama deshita → Said after a meal ♣ Otsukaresama → Said after a work ♣ ne → Used at the end of a phrase ♣ naa → Used at the end of a phrase
Vocabulary: ♣ bento → a Japanese box lunch ♣ conbini → "convenience store", aka a store opened 24/7 ♣ onsen → hot spring ♣ senpai → a senior (at work or school) ♣ kouhai → a junior (at work or school) ♣ -san → The most common honorific ♣ -chan → honorific generally used for girls ♣ -kun → honorific generally used for boys ♣ -sama → The most polite honorific, generally used for God, or important people
Also, some artists likes to write foreign words in their blogs, especially in English, French or Korean. I always try to keep them in my translations. They're written in blue :)
And finally, I sometimes add notes, in order to explain what the entry is talking about. It's generally about Japanese celebrations, expressions, humor, famous people, etc. They're written in red :)
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to contact coolnat466 (o^-^)o I don't accept translation requests.
