Hiyas!
I don't know if someone has put up any of this info for FFXIV yet, but I started thinking about brushing up on my Japanese for when FFXIV is released. I tracked down some sites which have simple phrases in Japanese which most people should find useful for playing with our FF friends across the Pacific pond. Some of these will have FFXI-specific phrases, so keep that in mind. If any of you know of others I can link or ones which are dedicated to FFXIV, post the URL, and I'll add it to the list.

Japanese related to FFXI:
FFXI Japanese Language (Nihongo) - English Guide Version 1.8
Encyclopedia of FFXI Japanese Terminology

While it's not just about Japanese phrases, I also recommend Elmer's JP Button

Other Japanese resources:
The Japanese Page

For thoes of us who use iphones, theres a few applications you can get for traslators. There was also one I was playing around with that I no longer have that gave you the basics of how japanese is pronounced. I'll post them in here later if I can find them again.

Woah, I didn't know Elmer made JP Button. I loved JP button back when I was still playing FFXI.

Elmer, keep it up, great job.

I'm not sure that JP Button is Elmer's; I just assumed since I always see it as part of his avatar.

Thanks for the addition, GunslingerXVI, but this is actually the first link I listed. I just used the name instead of the URL. ^^
