Practice translating from Japanese to English
Not exactly having to do with translation, but here goes.
Those of us who study or have studied Japanese very quickly learn that a lot of words borrowed into Japanese from don't keep the same meaning. Finding the meaning via dictionary/guessing has been fine up until now, but I am getting to the point I read/see enough newer material (magazines/manga/tv)that I am having trouble with my standard dictionary.
Does anyone have any suggestions for an online or hardcopy dictionary that would be more helpful? :-D
