    Hi everyone!

    Unfortunately I don't speak Japanese (but i would definitely like to) and there's this T-shirt that has some text written on it that is in Japanese. I want to buy it as a present for my friend but I have no idea what the text says! It isn't something like an article, it's quite short. Can someone please tell me what is says! :)

    Here it is: [img=http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/5307/56e5hnf6.th.jpg]

    Phonetically, 'furansu no kankei', which means related/connected with France

    So it's like French connection but written in Japanese! That's comforting. It's in Japanese, who knows what they could've written! I wouldn't like to gift a T-shirt that says 'I'm a ....(insult here)', especially to a close friend...

    Thank you very much MrSmith!

    I tried translating it myself, I turned on the Japanese keyboards in Leopard and found the exact symbols, then used google and other web translators but none did it!

    Well, on Google フランスの関係 gives me 'French relations'. But then we could both be lying... ;)

    Maybe it's supposed to mean, "My girlfriend is French"?

    So does it have to be in context to properly translate it?

    Google gave me gibberish, guess I didn't get the symbols right... :)
