Japanese Translation Help
« on: January 29, 2011, 05:13:48 pm »
I'm translating a Japanese Sega Mega Drive game and need some help translating text.  TIA.

If it's any help, these are all part of a "Modem" menu.

There's some kana at the top that I can't make out (the big red text at the top left). Other than that...

Select line type.

オートチェック/ダイヤル10/ダイヤル20/プッシュホン
Auto-Check/Pulse (10 PPS)/Pulse (20 PPS)/Touch-Tone

Quote
電話番号を入力して下さい。
Enter phone number.

Note that I had to do my research to figure out what "Dial 10", "Dial 20" and "Push Phone" (or however you want to romanize "pusshuhon"). Thank God for Japanese Wikipedia.

EDIT: Actually, looking carefully at what's visible, I think I can figure out the red text, too. It says テレフォンモード, doesn't it? That's "Telephone Mode".

Thanks Ryusui.  I still remember the old rotary (pulse) phones.  I didn't know there were 2 different types (10 PPS/20 PPS).  Maybe the US only used one type?

(English) Wikipedia says "some telephone systems standardized at 20 PPS." So I'd assume that most systems used 10 PPS.
