Translate Japanese Model Names into English!

Swimsuit Wind … Who knew!

You probably have models with names that look like this:

List of Japanese model names in MikuMikuDance on learnMMD.com: translate Japanese Model names.

I wanted to learn the name of the model I had always called “Bikini Miku” … after using this little trick to translate Japanese model names, it turns out her name is “Swimsuit Wind” … Who knew??

I use Google Translate to tell me the name.

First, one-click to select the model’s Japanese file name. Then, wait a moment and click it again to highlight the letters of the name … and COPY those letters.

Highlight the file's name so that you can "control c" copy those letters.

I copy it by doing a “control c” … or you can right click the type and select COPY. Then click off to the side of the screen, somewhere, to un-select that name.

Read Japanese webpages in (almost) English using Google Translate!

Go to translate.google.com …

This a handy site for those of us who are Japanese impaired “:o). … It does a terrible job of translating Japanese …

… but we can often get the gist of what is written.

 

Click the buttons, there, to translate from Japanese to English … and Paste your file name into the Japanese side …

You will see the translation in the English window.

Now you know … !

Swimsuit-Wind

I don’t think you want to change your file names … I wouldn’t do it. But, at least you can know your model’s original name!

    The only reason I’m saying this is because I’m learning japanese, and it ticks me off to see that kind of bad translations. I hope it improves.

      I agree with YOU! … Google Translate doe s a poor job with Japanese. I usually hope that I can make some sense out of the gibberish it comes up with. Any recommendations for another method, other than actually LEARNING Japanese … I am open!

    Actually, it probably didn’t mean that. Google translate is a horrible translator for things like this, and you’re better off not using it.

    I know that Google Translate has always translated KAITO into wind kite. Not what I want.
