Hi! I'm new, though I'm not really here to discuss much.
I just want to know, is it possible for me to just submit a translation I make from transliterated lyrics without having to take that test?
I tried it and although I'm fairly decent at my Japanese (I'm still learning), there's too much kanji (I can only write 6 and recognize at most 8 or 9 or them) so I wouldn't have been able to pass it unless I whipped out my Kanji de Manga books or even my Japanese-English dictionary.
I could read some of it, but I work better if I see the romanized version for translating, but the way the "rules" are written out in the submit page makes it confusing.
I just want to translate some songs. My Japanese vocab is pretty good.
