Any Japanese speakers who could translate something for me?

Post by twistedsymphony » 25 Apr 2013, 13:16

Does anyone here speak Japanese? I'd like to send emails out to a few Japanese game distributors to see if I can find a cabinet graphics set... basically I need someone to help me translate this simple message so I can send out a few emails:
Hello,
I'm interested in buying arcade cabinet stickers for Virtual On Oratorio Tangram. Like the ones in this picture: http://konaken.img.jugem.jp/20110919_2776161.jpg
I need the side stickers, the seat back stickers, and the control panel stickers. Do you sell these? If not, could you direct me to someone who does?

Thank you.

Did you ever find anyone? I guess you could use Google or Excite translation. Try to simplify the English as much as possible and the recipient will probably decipher the translated text successfully.

nah, never found anyone. I don't really trust google translate to do a good enough job to not just get me tossed out with the spam.

I did find a Japanese gaming forum where a good percentage of the members live in Japan and speak/write fluently however they all had a holier than thou attitude toward my request and refused to help me claiming that I was just wasting my time trying to contact Sega. (really, the only time I actually wasted was going through the lengthy registration process on that site to ask them for help)

Bummer. Did you try contacting any arcade parts shops in Japan such as Manjiro or River Service?
