Coding Japanese Text

While most browsers can read Japanese text nowadays, coding can be used just to be on the safe side, with a nihongo template.

The code:{{nihongo|'''Romanized Title'''|Japanese text|Phonetics}}

For example: {{nihongo|'''Project.R'''|プロジェクト・ドット・アール|Purojekuto Dotto Āru}}

makes

Project.R (プロジェクト・ドット・アール Purojekuto Dotto Āru?)

Word Preference

As an English language resource, this wiki will use English words for common Japanese nouns. There are still points of contention but when applicable we'll add them to this list.

Common Nouns

  • henshin- use 'transform'
  • senshi- for Sentai rangers, use 'ranger' instead as established in Gokaiger
  • gattai- use 'combination'
  • taisen- use 'war' or 'wars', unless its an official Romanization for the title, such as Super Hero Taisen and all other sentai names.

Proper Nouns

  • As names usually, this wiki will stick to the original. i.e. Sentai names.
  • While 'sentai' means task force, this wiki refers to it as the franchise title, despite being a common noun. This applies to season and team names as well.
