Requesting Japanese Translation


#1

I’m adding a little Japanese to a Ruby presentation I am giving. I
need just one simple phrase translated at this time. (More will come
later though, so let me know if you don’t mind helping out.)

If some bilingual friend would take pity on me an translate this, I
would be super grateful:

Server Offline

Thanks in advance for the help!

Nobu -

My wife’s not around to ask but.

I think I understand the sa-ba- is server, the rest seems to be either

o furai so
or maybe
o furaiso

Or did I misunderstand the Katakana?

The only word in her Japanese-English dictionary which matches is
furai, which means a 'breaded deep fried food"

So is this literally saying that the server is fried!

You are on the right track but the last character is not ‘so’, it is
‘n’.

Though I wonder if it depends on the context, the above is
simplest.

Thanks, the difference between e$B%=e(B and e$B%se(B is a bit subtle
to my western eye!

So is the last word furain ? And what does it mean, “The Server is
Frying?” Is that a japanese word or a borrowed word like I assume for
sa-ba- being server?

Thank you.

I forgot to ask for the word “Warning”, which I also need. I tried to
look it up in my dictionary and think this version might be
right: e$BDL9pe(B. I’m using it with “Server Offline” as a notice.
Here’s a screenshot:

Does this look OK?

Thanks again for the help.

It’s sa-ba- (Server) ofurain (Offline).

          matz.

Just to be clear, the “Warning” is in the rather small browser title
there.

I like the “frying” version better. :slight_smile:

Yes, but e$B7Y9pe(B is better for “warning”. e$BDL9pe(B is rather
“notification”.
We often use e$B%o!<%K%s%0e(B (or e$B%&%)!<%K%s%0e(B) as well.
