Hello all,

Well, I believe most people who translate from Japanese are familiar with Jim Breen's web site.

But, do you folks have any other recommended sites, particularly for looking up the readings of kanji or kanji pairings?

Thanks!

Have you tried Daijirin? Aug 23, 2004

I've found that it has many words that Mr. Breen's dictionary doesn't. Goo has a copy that you can search on-line:

What about my site? Jul 21, 2005

I forgot that I have a Kanji Site!

I used to work on it when I have time. Unfortunately I am very busy now, so that I can not continue it for at least 1 month.

Just go to www.kanjiworld.com
