Since you have mentioned it on the article's talk page and the user's talk page and gotten no response, you should remove the copyrighted material from the article. If it has been very substantially changed from the original in the intervening time though, it's probably ok to leave it. Cheers, Mak (talk) 15:06, 18 May 2006 (UTC)


はじめまして、Hattoです。えっと、Aotakeさんは翻訳の仕事をしていらっしゃるそうですが、実はある英語版の日本の有名人の記事を日本のウェブサイトの情報を元に加筆してもらいたいんですけど依頼していいですか?もうその記事は十分に詳しくなっているように見えるものなのですが、俺はさらなる拡大を目指してこのインターネットを通じて世界に発信したいのです。さらに、日本語が解るユーザーは英語のそれよりも圧倒的に少ないので、英語版を詳しくすれば例え日本語が解らない人が多くても英語版から様々な外国語で記事を翻訳してもらえると思ったから依頼しました。20、いや30言語以上の言語で作成することを目指して、先日俺が各言語を解するユーザーに新規作成も依頼させてもらいました。今のところドイツ語、ポーランド語、朝鮮語で記事の作成をリクエストしており、作成されたらまた色々な言語で同様のことを各ユーザーに頼むつもりでいます。ちなみに俺のメインページには外国語による新規作成を募集していて、その一覧を載せています。あと、Wikipedia:Translation into English/Japaneseで新規作成を依頼した日本の社会問題になっている記事があるのですが、それを英語で新規で作ってもらえませんか?ちなみに、その関連人物の記事は英語版で既に2人作りました。お返事待ってます。--Hatto 12:56, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

もしこのメッセージを見たのであれば、お返事下さい。--Hatto 01:38, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

こんにちわ/ 안녕하세요/ Salut[edit]

Hello, I saw you first on the Korean Wikipedia, and just wanted to say hello. ^_^ I respect all cultures and languages, including Japanese, and I am Korean. It would be nice if we can work together in the Korean and Japanese Wikipedia. I'm living in New Jersey, USA right now. I was born in Seoul though. I am currently learning Japanese, like you are currently learning Korean :). I am thinking of living in Japan (probably Dong-Gyung (To-kyo)). So, I am happy that I got to meet you, and I hope that we can work together in the future. ^_^ はじめまして。 どうぞ夜しく。

私は 尹一荷 です。 私は 大韓民國人 です。...ありがと。Amphitere 18:35, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
안녕하세요. 반갑습니다! Thank you for your message. My Korean is deficient for working on KOWP articles but I hope someday I can make some contributions. I wish your plan to live in Tokyo be realized soon! またどこかでお会いしましょう。--Aotake 08:48, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Just being nosy - Robert Frost[edit]

Hi, I noticed your recent edit to Robert Frost (I assume this is the Korean (?) version of his name). Are names translated phonetically, or literally - i.e. is "Frost" translated to something that sounds like "Frost" or to something that means "Frost"? I assume the former, but you never know... Tomandlu (talk) 17:26, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your notice. Actually it was a Japanese version, but at any rate, names are in general translated phonetically in modern Japanese (and also in modern Korean). Read by ordinary Japanese speaker, it would probably sound like "lobaato fulosto", though. --Aotake (talk) 09:49, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Many thanks Tomandlu (talk) 11:29, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

PD's New Message[edit]

I want to ask if it is possible for you to translate the Japanese texts from NSJAP’s website on their position on various cults like Aum_Shinrikyo, Branch Davidians, the International Federation for Victory Over Communism created by Sun Myung Moon, leader of the Unification Church, the two big Japanese texts on both Aum Shinrikyo and the Holocaust as well as placing your mouse on this roughly translated text of NSJAP’s website so you can get the Google boxes that show the Japanese text explaining NSJAP’s ideology and explain why NSJAP should establish a moral state as a national community on the basis of the idea of National Socialism. Meaning why would they think National Socialism is morally good?

NSJAP says on its website that it will “fight for the FREEDOM OF THE WORLD against communism”. However the Wikipedia article on NSJAP says this party’s “theories allow them to be placed within the wider context of the Eurasianism that forms a part of National Bolshevism.” There are three ideologies and any one of them can be combined with Nationalism to form the ideology called National Bolshevism. These ideologies are on the extreme left wing and are “Bolshevism”, “communism” and “socialism”. Like all the questions above, I want to ask if NSJAP's support for the ideology called Eurasianism, that's part of National Bolshevism means that NSJAP supports these two ideologies? Does this mean NSJAP supports National Bolshevism, or does NSJAP oppose communism? I am asking you all these questions because your answer will help me develop a message on NSJAP’s position on National Bolshevism. I intend to send this message to the talk page on that ideology so that I can ask all Wikipedians if National Bolshevism is or is not anti-Semitic.Please call back soon, thank you.

Please reply[edit]

It has been seven days from today since I put the above message on your talk page last week on Tuesday 19th May 2009. I want to understand if because you find my message so long that is why it may take some time for you to read and understand it.

You can give answers to questions of my “PD's New Message” here or on my talk page. The information you give as answers to the questions will help me contribute new information to the article on National Bolshevism by explaining in that article whether this ideology is anti-semitic or not.

I want to know when you will reply to it and also if there is anything you find you cannot understand in the “PD's New Message” could you explain that to me here or on my talk page, thank you, please reply soon.

Technically I may be able to help you translate some of the texts, but I think just copying and translating them on Wikipedia will violate copyright lows, for it will exceed the limit to be exempted as a quotation. --Aotake (talk) 12:45, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

3rd Reply from PD[edit]

I think what you are saying is that explaining and translating every word of these Japanese texts and putting the long translation of these texts up on Wikipedia violates copyright laws, depending what those laws may be. Yet would it be possible for you to explain to me not by using long English translations of the Japanese texts but with a few words in English on what these Japanese texts are generally saying? Political Dweeb talk —Preceding undated comment added 15:24, 26 May 2009 (UTC).

That depends on how much you ask me to explain. I am not an expert in this area. Reading such text and trying to understand their position will require me a lot of work. --Aotake (talk) 16:01, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

When you say it depends on how much you should explain to me about these Japanese texts, do you mean how many texts you should translate for me? Or is it that because that when I say you should use few words to explain each of NSJAP's various positions, that is not saying a particular amount needs to be explaned.

Well I think the amount I would want you to explain to me is where you give a small summary in English on every Japanese text you have read that explains whether NSJAP opposes or supports the Branch Davidians, communism, National Bolshevism, Aum Shinrikyo, Unification Church, International Federation for Victory Over Communism and the Holocaust.

It just depends on how many days it will take you to read all of these Japanese texts and create a summary you could give me on each of those texts. If possible you try to scan through the Japanese texts and explain to me the important parts of them. Yet please let me know if there is there any other way I could possibly work with you on this. Please reply here or on my talk page soon, thank you.

Political Dweeb talk —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:51, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

I will just give some short comments. As I said before, if you cannot read these text by yourself, and cannot find reports on these topics in the language you can read, I think you should give up writing something on it on Wikipedia.

Branch Davidians just explains about Branch Davidians and David Koresh. The tone does not sound very sympathetic, but it is not critical either.
I assume they oppose it.
National Bolshevism
I don't know. The words Bolshevism or Bolshevik mostly appears in translations, and those usages appear to be critical.
Aum Shinrikyo
according to , they are neutral. They do not directly support Aum but they admire what they did.
Unification Church and International Federation for Victory Over Communism
They oppose it.
they are Holocaust revisionists, yet they use the word holocaust to refer to other genocide or oppression by the USA, Israel, Jewish organizations, etc. --Aotake (talk) 13:28, 27 May 2009 (UTC)


...for merging the pictures of the List of National Treasures of Japan (sculptures) into the table. Following a request in the FLC, I moved them out of the table because there were too few of them. Thanks to User:ReijiYamashina this has changed since then. Still there could be many more. If you have any images of National Treasures (sculptures or others) to upload, that would be really great. Since you seem to be interested in National Treasures maybe you'd like to help out here? bamse (talk) 09:43, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the message. I thought there should have been a reason that the images were not in the table, but decided to go on rather than asking ^^; Sorry if I messed up something. I will try to follow the todo list and see what I can do. Hope to see you soon again. --Aotake (talk) 15:19, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
Glad that you are interested. Feel free to edit the Ongoing effort section when you decide what to do.bamse (talk) 16:15, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
