    Post Japanese Pachinko Terms - translated

    translationexample.jpg

    This is an attempt to translate all the common terms one sees when reading Japanese texts on pachinko (and occasionally) pachislo machines either in magazines, books or online, into English explanations.

    I first wrote this back in 2009 with James my translator (who @emmadog is very familiar with). I've had this document for many years since sitting in the dark, and at one time even considered selling it, but the demand is far too small in our community for that so have decided to simply release it for all your use now.

    this is Final version 1.03, and version 1.04 has been in Draft for about 6 months - so if you have any feedback or corrections, please do send them to me and I'll keep editing the document before moving that version to FINAL.

    Each new version will be updated here.

    Hope you find some use for this (Word 6 format):

    Thanks CFlip. Surprising how long the site's been around with no dictionary on even basic terms. This is a big help.

    Hi Jon, Your updated link brings up a login screen to Drop Box for me so that part works. Just wondering if there is another option to view your post for those of us that will never use Drop Box?

    sorry, Dropbox or nothing for now.
    It costs nothing to signup, and they won't bother you again.

    Try this one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ji9f9yhf9w...0only.doc?dl=0

    Thanks Jon! This one opened for me without bothering to log in at this time. I'm just shy to use drop box due to some of their lingo in the user agreement. But that was a year ago and probably changed a few times since then. Thank you for all of your work on this!

    Hi can this document still be accessed, by the forum as the link in the old post no longer seems to work.

    Thanks

    Hi I have just found your new link and thank you for this useful guide. I may now have a better chance of knowing what the messages are saying in the game.
