If you type things out and then press the space bar, the program will automatically change some Hiragana into Kanji (although sometimes it isn't the right one, so you need to look it up to get the one that's correct). If you want to keep what you just typed as is then you hit the Enter key instead.

But yeah, knowing what to do comes with fiddling with things. Come back if you still have some problems and we'll try and solve it together =)

ive got one called JWP (japanese word processor) that lets you type the sound of the hiragana rather than the characters. same for katakana but have to hold shift. can do kanji too. gives you a list of possible kanji for that spelling of the word. maybe google it? i dont no!!

It's the same concept of writing romaaji, lol. If people need help with finding the Kanji I can help out

To Tima-san: like all nations that have computers, they have their own versions of the keyboard for it and we have ours =)

Use the same steps as I did on the first page:

Click on Start (the one with the Windows flag) > Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Regional Language Options > Keyboards and Languages tab > Change keyboards > Add... > scroll for Japanese > Keyboard > Microsoft IME > OK > Apply

A language bar should appear in your task bar, but it will say "EN". Right-click and choose "Restore the Language bar" so you can see what it is. It'll say "EN English (United States)". Click on it and go to "JP Japanese (Japan)". It will extend and give you: Microsoft IME, A Input Mode, Conversion Mode, IME Pad, Tools

To write in Japanese, click on Input Mode and choose either Hiragana or Katakana. To go back to typing in English, you can either choose Half-width Alphanumeric or return to EN English (United States)

If you run into trouble, let me know

Those are the instructions on getting the Japanese writing program. Since you have a Vista from Windows, you already have the program in your computer. You just need to install it. What I gave you is how you get everything done. The ">" indicates the next step you need to take.

It depends what type of OS you have. The instructions I gave are for Windows XP 2000 (some of them) and up.
