Japwrite Released
Posted on 15 March 1999, 04:54 GMT

[Japwrite Screenshot] Benjamin Rodgers has released Japwrite for the TI-89. The program allows you to write in Japanese on your TI-89. This beta version lets you write Hiragana and Katakana. This is one of the first true foreign language programs for the calculators.

I don't think we'll ever see a good translation program for any calc, unless it's just word by word. Hell, computers can't even do it. They can't even make accurate corrections to the same language (try using grammar correct in MS Word), nevermind others. If that is so, than how can you expect a calc to do it?

I think it would be impossible to have good translations for formal and intricate language. However, if the direct style or less complex styles of Japanese were used I think it could be done. If anyone is interested in something like this (or anything involving Japanese) drop me a line. I'm in fourth year right now and planning on taking fifth year next year.

Hey, at least Korean's a language where you can actually read the words without knowing what the hell they mean. (very slowly though...)
