What can these lists be used for?
- The lists above are provided as translation guides when reading/viewing any of the material they cover (see Source column). By using these pre-built lists, one can save time on looking up words, and instead focus on enjoying the novel/film/textbook/etc, and remembering the words.
What are all the links above, and which should I use?
- The first column (on the left) links to the actual vocab list, which is formatted to be easily read by Kanji Go. You'll want to save these to your desktop (in plain text form) to open within Kanji Go. These lists contain the Kanji, Reading, Definition, and any custom notes for each word.
- The second column (Source) contains links that make it easy to find what the vocab lists were based off of. For example, the vocab list for 'One Hundred Poems by One Hundred Poets' links to a website where you can find the original poems. For movies, links would point to where one can purchase/rent/download the film.
- For songs which are royalty-free, the 'Music' column provides links to audio files for the music.
Where did these lists come from?
- All the lists above were sent in by users of Kanji Go using either email or the built in Publish Tool. If you've created any lists using Kanji Go, feel free to share them here for others to enjoy.
What about file encoding?
- In order to represent Japanese and Chinese characters, Kanji Go's vocab lists use EUC-JP encoding. Two other encodings that ones sees frequently are UTF-8 and Shift-JIS. When importing lists, Kanji Go can read any of these encodings. However, the list must also be formatted in a manner that Kanji Go can read (see Manual for details). The simplest method of creating lists is by searching for the words within Kanji Go, and adding the search results to a vocab list (drag and drop, or the hotkey cmd L).
