How's your Japanese?

While at the International Rally in Springfield this past summer, we met up with some Japanese reporters on a photo shoot for a design & lifestyle magazine. Their English was much better than our Japanese, but we had a nice visit regardless! Anyway, I received a copy of the resulting magazine and would love to read about their impression of the rally.

Anybody out there that can help?

Here's a link to the article on my website:

DO Something!

Shari,

I would try asking around at a local university. There is bound to be someone who can translate it for you. At the moment I dont know any Japanesse students here but I will keep an eye out for you. Good luck.

We have two Japanese members in our unit, I'll forward it to them and see if they'll translate it for us.

Thanks for the suggestions...

Steph let me know if you come up with anything. I think it would be most fun to have it translated (even if remotely) through the forum network! If that doesn't pan out, I'll drop by the nearest sushi restaurant or university ~

Our Jpanese friends replied that their English is not quite up to translating. They did say they think they know the reporter who wrote it though! They passed it along to another friend they felt would do a better job of translating it. So we'll see if they want to tackle it.
