Is there a way to toggle between English and Japanese in-game?

Assuming you know how to do it out of game, it's the same way. No additional addons required.

Oh! That's great to know they finally allow people to type in Japanese! It's almost a necessity in a game that has integrated servers whose population is somewhere around half Japanese!

it actually is not necessary at all because SE implemented a pretty great auto-translate feature!

Is there a good translator out there that can do a good job English - Japanese?

Tried Babelfish in the past but it tends to always botch up sentences.

...which is totally incomplete and missing key phrases and words that won't be added even up to 6 years down the line.

Oh wait...

Can you translate "gil" yet, or do you still have to use "money?"

"Reward:" was nice, after all the issues with "Reward" but there really are many phrases that don't exist in auto-translate that you don't miss until you need them. I do, however, love the auto-translate feature in FFXI/V, and think that it, for the most part, is great.

No, there isn't. There is no such thing as good machine translation right now, because most researchers are going down the dead end of statistical correlation techniques.

Even Google Translate, which is probably the best of the bunch, sucks hard unless your already at least familiar with the languages involved.

It's been awhile since I've had japanese enabled. I forgot to install it on my laptop this time around, so I'll give it a go. I feel so ghetto trying to remember romaji. Hiragana is much easier to use.

Okay so I installed the IME, but I can't get it to toggle in-game. And now it seems like I randomly crash whereas before I had never crashed (or was extremely fortunate). Any ideas?
