While the lyrics are reproduced under fair use, it is important to give credit where credit is due!
No machine translations!
Please do NOT submit machine translations or transliterations! You may, of course, use a machine translation as a rough draft. Please, proof read and correct it before finalizing your edit! Fewer edits mean better site performance.
No works in progress
Please do not post incomplete transliterations/translations.
Once you are finished, you may post them, but not before.
Not sure? Leave it alone!
Some Japanese singers don't pronounce words (especially foreign ones) quite right.
Some Japanese song lyrics can be vague, meaningless, or grammatically incorrect.
Please, if you think you have found a mistake in the lyrics, but are not sure, leave them alone!
Use the proper section
The Romaji section should contain the original lyrics, even if they aren't in Japanese, with the exception that the lyrics originally in English.
The Kanji section should contain the Japanese text version of the song lyrics, which may be translated into Japanese from the original language.
The English section should contain the English translation of the lyrics, or the original lyrics if they are in English.
Vandalism will not be tolerated
Vandalism is defined as changes to lyrics that are intentionally disruptive or destructive.
This includes deletion of legitimate lyrics and insertion of nonsense or irrelevant content.
If you see a genuine error in translation, you may fix it.
If, however, you might have translated it differently as a matter of personal taste, do NOT change the lyrics!
The original translator is seen to have the creative authority, please respect it.
