I just wanted to take a moment to share a document with those who are interested in learning Japanese. This is a book that I translated from Romanian to English about the Japanese language a few years ago. It's called: "Japoneza in 30 de zile" (Japanese in 30 Days) by Florin Vasiliu and Stefan Benea. I've also added some corrections and my own personal notes in as well (mostly towards the bottom of the document). There's also a second smaller text file called "Essential Japanese verbs" that I copied off a website which no longer exists. I gave credit at the beginning and end of both documents for all used content. Hopefully, this will be helpful to those who are studying Japanese. Included within the document is a full table of Katakana and Hiragana as well as a few common use Kanji along with the English translation and Romanization (Romaji). Which let me tell you, was not easy manually inputting into a text file! Well anyways, thanks and happy reading!

Thanks for the hard work, Recca. I'll definitely have a look at it and I'm sure others will find it helpful. Great job as always.

No problem, I hope that it's of some use to you and others as well. I must thank you as well, Taskforce. Without this message board, my hard work would have gone to waste. At least now, I have it uploaded somewhere on the internet to archive and preserve it. I should probably put it somewhere else as well, I'm just not sure where yet. But before that, it would might be a good idea if I cleaned and formatted it a little. I should probably also save it as a rtf, doc or pdf instead of a simple txt file as it is now. And in retrospect, I should also remove that "summarized" part. When I first began translating this book years ago, I wanted to make it as brief as possible. But in the end, I translated the whole thing and added some additional notes, a few corrections and some more words to the dictionary part. Or rather, I should say "parts" as each chapter has a small dictionary section which features all of the new Japanese words that have been used.

After looking through it once more, it seems that the only part that I left out was at the end which was just advertising other books written and published by the same authors that worked on this one. If I ever do get around to reformatting this into a cleaner, more professional format, I may translate that part as well. In matter of fact, I probably should. But for now, this is good enough. The entire guide and lessons have all been fully translated into English. I've had it sitting on my computer completed for years now. It's nice to finally post it somewhere.
