Translating shiritori game
« on: March 22, 2015, 06:50:31 pm »
Hello,
I'm working on a translation which
involves a Japanese word game shiritori http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiritori
There is the English version; word chain.

Now the question is:
Should i change the
Japanese shiritori to English word chain?
or just try to apply Japanese shiritori
rules to English language?

Any recommendations?

Edit:
The game in question is getterlove!!
here is portion of script:

しりとりするネ!
ハオハオ

オムライス

オープン

オヤブン

I think this does not translate to english very well, and changing the rules to english word chain
makes all the answers correct.
