Hey there guys. I'm in need of a bit of help. I'm doing an art piece to go along with a FanFic I'm working on with a friend of mine, and I need to know how to write "What you Cherish most" as accurately as possible translated to Japanese. I' always on Crunchyroll and figured, this being the site it is, there'd be a good amount of people who know their way around Japanese. Please, I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out. Also, if you're very familiar with Japanese and would be willing to help me out from time to time with translations, maybe send me a PM with some contact info. Always willing to meet people who enjoy anime and manga. I'll post a link to the finished piece when I post it!

If you want to check out the FanFic, here's my buddy's page:

I apologize if I've upset anyone by posting this. Thanks again for the help!

Depends a lot on who says it to who. Social hierarchy is a very determining factor in the way Japanese people speak to each other.

Ehhh, It was just a quote. I suppose it would be one friend speaking to another... equals in social status. Oh, and yeah I didn't want to use an online translator since they're usually not very keen on accuracy.

97% of people on CR only know a couple of Japanese words at the most and they're only ones you hear from anime.. (Kawaii, baka, waifu, husbando, tsundere etc.. etc..)

あなたの最も大切なもの
Anata no mottomo taisetsu na mono
Your most cherished thing
(I'm not sure about this since I think it's more formal thus I don't see it that often)

or

あなたの一番大切な事
Anata no ichiban taisetsu na koto
Your number one cherished topic/thing


or

あなたの一番大切なもの
Anata no ichiban taisetsu na mono
Your number one cherished thing

Just here to add a little note.

You could leave out 「あなたの」 if you really mean, "What one cherishes/would cherish most," and aren't being specific towards a certain person.

You can optionally leave out 「一番」 if you're referring to a general swath of stuff that someone would cherish most (and not one specific thing), but I think it could still work regardless.

もの is typically used with concrete objects.
事 is typically used with abstract concepts.

If you'd like a better translator than Google, I have a few suggestions. (Especially if you're surfing on Japanese sites and need a little help).

If you use Firefox or Chrome, you might want to look into getting an add-on called Rikaichan. See here: http://www.tofugu.com/japanese-resources/rikaichan/. It may feel overwhelming at first cause so much information is thrown at you, but once you get used to it, it's a very helpful tool. I also like this website: http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/cgi-bin/wwwjdic.cgi?9T. Both of these certainly aren't perfect, but they're better than Google translate. Both of these links assume you know some very basic Japanese (You can at least read a little hiragana/katakana).
