Why participate?

Join the bab.la community and take part in the fun by assisting in the improvement of the English to Japanese dictionary. When a user adds a new Japanese word or a translation of a Japanese phrase dictionary, the English to Japanese dictionary becomes more complete and of more use to everybody. As new ways of making English to Japanese translations are developing every day, it is important that these get included in our dictionary. Certain technical terms have different translations from English to Japanese depending on what field they are used in. For all these reasons we allow users to amend the online dictionaries. However, to maintain a high level of quality in the English to Japanese dictionary any new Japanese translation needs to be verified by 10 other users, before they are included.
You can register and start gathering points for the world ranking today. Anything you contribute, like adding new Japanese phrases to the English-Japanese dictionary, will earn you points. If you are unsure on the correct English-Japanese translation to use you can always post a question to the English-Japanese forum. Here bab.la users help each other and answer questions about Japanese to English translation as well as other questions about the Japanese language.
