Hi, all. Does anyone know if there is a good Japanese>English quick reference on the Internet for these kanji names of foreign countries and languages (仏語=French), etc?

Thanks!

You could try the following Wikipedia link: Jun 27, 2006

http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/国の一覧

It's pretty long, so might be quickest to do a 'search within the page' if you are looking for a particular character.

There is also http://www.interq.or.jp/www1/infomat/info14700.htm

which, although not that comprehensive, includes many of the main ones:

日 = 日本語(Japanese)、英 = 英語(English)、 仏 = 仏語(French)、 独 =
独語(German)、 蘭 = 蘭語 (Dutch)、 西 = 西語(Spanish)、
伊 = 伊語 (Italian)、 葡 = 葡語 (Portuguese)、
中 = 中国語(Chinese)

HTH a little
