Question What does it say???

I just revieved my certificate from passing my Rokkyu test and it has alot of Kanji on it and I can't read a lick of it. Does anyone know a good way to translate Kanji besides finding someone who can read it. *if i cant find a way to figure it out Ill end up asking anyway but i would like to figure it out on my own.* Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

There are very good kanji dictionaries out there such as the Nelson Japanese-English Character Dictionary.

Re: What does it say???

I like JWPce a lot for XP. You can look up the kanji by various means. It's free and it's also a handy reference when I know a word but not the kanji...type it in hiragana or katakana and it'll find the related characters.

However, if you have little or no experience with Japanese, it can be rather difficult to make sense of words (especially verbs) in formal styles of writing.

You could try asking your Sensei.I asked mine and he read it for me. He also does the certificates tho.
