The idea behind this is to help bridge the communication gaps between the Japanese and American players by offering pre-set commonly used phrases and words that would automatically be translated in either language when used. A great idea, but when you look at how expanse the world of Final Fantasy XI is, it quickly becomes apparent that there are a lot of terms to deal with. This FAQ is here to help you wade through it all to find those specific phrases and words that you'll be wanting when you join a party with Japanese members or try to set up bi-lingual macros. 2] General Information _____________________________________________________ To bring up the translation menu, press the Tab key when you have the chat input box up. This will bring up a small menu on the left side of the chat window with a listing of categories to choose from. From these categories you can then scroll through and select the term you'd like translated and have it placed in the chat input box. Another way of searching the translated phrases is to partially type what you'd like translated and then hit the Tab key. A menu will appear on the left offering the closest phrases available based on what you have input so far. Once you have selected a phrase, it will replace what you have partially typed for that word with the translated version of it. Translated phrases are indicated as such in a light blue hue. Editing a translated phrase will remove the blue coloring and it will not be translated when it is entered. After entering a translated phrase or word, it will be marked to yourself and others who see it with a green marker at the phrase's start and a red marker at the phrase's end. Besides just using the translation menu for general conversation in or out of parties, translated phrases can also be added to bazaar and search comments as well as macros. 3] Greetings ___________________________________________(17 Phrases)________ All right!

Instead, the item section contains only items you have in your current inventory and mog house, items you have seen recently in your party, and things you have recently looked at in the auction house. Also you can choose from translated items that other people have recently said. 40] Legal Information _______________________________________________________ This FAQ may only be placed on the following websites with my permission: - GameFAQs (http://www.gamefaqs.com) If you have found this FAQ or direct information from this FAQ on another site or wish to place this FAQ on your own site, please contact me for permission at: firstname.lastname@example.org (Replace the 'x's with 'e's.)
