Special thank to Mastress Alita, visit her forum at http://blgames.proboards25.com/index.cgi
the message below here are written by Mastress Alita except for the latest updates which is added by me.
I realized that I don't have these sites in my Links, but thought they would be interesting to share.
The first is "Anime Game Test Hooker". You can read about this tool in-depth on this thread of my board. This program lets you extract Japanese text from a game as you play it. You can set the program to automatically copy text to the clipboard, and then with Atlas Japanese Translation Software you can have it automatically translate text from the clipboard, getting instant translations for each dialogue screen. By all means not perfect, but still an extremely highly recommended tool to learn a bit more about the stories in games.
There is another Japanese text extractor, "Oh! Text Hooker", which can be found here. However, I recommend "Anime Games Text Hooker" because it is much more compatible with a wider range of games than "Oh! Text Hooker".
The second is JWPce, a free Japanese Word Processor, which can be found here. This program is the God of Kanji for me. Usually I will extract a Japanese script using Oh! Text Hooker, and then put it into this program and save it, or run it while I'm using Anime Game Text Hooker, copy Japanese sentences into it, and use it's powerful kanji look-up to help me understand lines that get botched up pretty bad from Atlas.
You can highlight a kanji and hit F6 to have it look up what the kanji is, or right-click any Japanese character and do "Get Info" to find out what it is (a "ka", a "te", ect.) Using this combined with AGTH+Atlas, I find it is a very handy tool. It is also great for simply saving Japanese text or doing Japanese word processing. Often Japanese text you are trying to use in another program that gets turned into jibberish will work if you copy it to JWPce first, and then copy it again and paste to that other program, as well.
And then there are online resources for Japanese. Here are some handy Japanese <--> English webpages that I use:Excite Japanese <-->English Translator
- Translates full websites or just blocks of input text from Japanese to English or English to Japanese. The Japanese translation software "Atlas" uses the same translation programming as Excite.Google's Translator

Japanese Sound Effects and What they Mean

Kansai-Ben Grammar and Kansai-Ben Word List
- In the southern part of Japan in the kansai region (such as Osaka), the people use a different Japanese dialect. This is a great page for Kansai-ben grammar and words in Kansai-ben, since they use many different words than traditional Japanese. It will show the word in Kansai-ben, the word in normal Japanese, and the meaning. This is a great resource, since online translators usually can't handle Kansai-ben well at all.
