Japanese Character Recognition
I'm doing localization testing in Japanese.
I can't speak Japanese though so using Japanese Windows XP is not easy.
Error messages in European languages can be typed into Google Translator but typing Japanese is not a simple thing.
There are applications online that let you draw a japanese character and it'll recognise it for you.
The trouble is, I can't find one.
Google gives the abstracts of scientific papers written on the subject or reviews of people's half-made ones that require all sorts of Perl SDKs and things to compile.
Does anyone know where I can get a whole program for it?
It doesn't need to translate it, just convert my drawings into the actual text so I can copy and paste it into google translator.
I'd be very appreciative if anyone can help.
Re: Japanese Character Recognition
I know I have used the Japanese IME's for Windows in the past, but I can write Japanese so its much easier for me than it might be for you. There are language translators out there like NJStar is one I used many years ago. I know when I set up a computer in Chinese for my wife, I had my own nearby, the one great thing about Windows is no matter the language the screen settings are pretty much the same.
A site like http://www.worldlanguage.com/ may help you in find out some various translators and other programs.
Nothing learns better than experience.
