How to use a "‚±‚Æ‚¦‚è," a JPN word processor

  1. Open Microsoft word.
  2. Go to the top right hand corner and select "KOTOERI" Change English to/from Japanese, depending on your necessity.
  3. Begin typing in "Romanization."

A. Characters

  1. Roman characters --Look at the hiragana and/or katakana chart if you have trouble in typing.
  2. Type a word ("sensei") correctly, hit a space bar if you want a kanji (if a correct kanji doesn't appear, hit the bar again and select a right one), hit "return," and go on. You should hit the "return" key often after you type a word, a particle, a conjunction, etc. When you write a long (complete) sentence and hit the space bar, you will possibly get a funny sentence mixed in incorrect kanji and hiragana. When you see an "underline," you should hit the "return" key to go on.
  3. When you want to use Katakana, (1) hit the "caps lock key" and type, or (2) type hiragana and then hit the space bar--if the word is a commonly used one such as "miruku," it is changed automatically.
