Ok, so I found these,"w, 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

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.
