sincere effort?
 
Hey all,

How would I say "sincere effort" in japanese?

Thanks,

Bronson

Ok, so I found these,誠実な"w力, on a machine translator site. Is it close to correct for "sincere effort". If so what is the romaji spelling? Is there a shorter (less characters) way of writing it and what would that romaji spelling be?

Thanks all you japanese speakers/readers :D

Since Jun changed the software, I have had difficulty in inputting Japanese characters and the difficulty still remains.

Your version is read as 誠実的な努力 (seijitsutekina doryoku), but it sounds odd. I think the favourite word for making an effort is ganbaru 頑張る, with something like isshokenmei 一所懸命 added in front.
