Yeesh. That's a whole lotta romaji. 😌
Do you know any Japanese at all? If so I suggest you translate as much as you can yourself even if it is a mess and then come back.

SOMEONE is spying on his girlfriend's conversation and has just successfully employed someone to translate the eavesdrop for him!

*shrug*

TwistedMac could well have been kidding.

What I find odd is that anybody could get that amount of romaji transcribed from a conversation without being able to follow the Japanese? :?

Maybe the original was a transcript from a romaji chat room ... :eek:

Aaaanyway I think you were too nice to the original poster in translating something they hadn't tried to do themselves in the first place.

O... actually, i do speak Japanese and i do understand them really well.
what i didn't get here is whether the conversation really exists or not.
i didn't think about the people who did this conversation.
it must've been something private.

ooooo god!! how could i have done it!!!!!

Is that "I also think so" ? But if so, I wonder whrer '両方' came from ?

Wow, でたぁ〜、「許させていただきませんか」だ!!
Glennさん、「させていただく」で遊んでるでしょ。:D

By the way, これって英語なら
"Could you allow me to allow someone to speak 変な日本語 ?"
になるんじゃないかなあ。自信ないけど。

もちろん返事は、
Yeah! Sure! You can allow anyone to speak 変な日本語.
ですよね!:D

Yeah, it was supposed to mean, "Me too. Both of them." But I wasn't sure how to get that across, and 両方 seemed like it would cover them both. :?

少し遊んでいましたよ。しかし、私の学んだことから「許可を得るために「させていただく」を言えば問題ない」ということです。

そうですか。「許す」というのは「forgive」という意味だと思ってましたが、まあまだ分からないようですね、「させていただく」のことが。 :? まだまだ勉強するしかないでしょうね。

I don't understand 'them' in 'Both of them'. If it is clear, 両方 also will be clear.

Glenn said:

I see. You are right. But whose permission do you need in this context?
「許可を得るための「させていただく」は問題ない」は確かにそうですが、
it would be appropriate in the context you must not do something without someone's permission.

Glenn said:

なるほど、Would you forgive my odd Japanese? ということだったのですね。
でしたら、「させていだだく」は使えませんよ。
「変な日本だけど許してください」「変な日本語だけど大目に見てください」が自然な言い方だと思います。

どんどん練習しましょう!お手伝いしますよ。
Let's practice Japanese! I will help you.

From context I think "My Japanese" and "Everything in life"

Haha, this got a little more out of control than I meant for it to. I knew I should have been clearer.

I meant that I agree with both 自分の存在自体もね and mikeって面白いねぇ〜. But apparently I was way off in my attempt at conveying that information. :?

Ah, that makes sense. Hmm, I don't know what I was thinking when I said that. :? It appears that I was way off here, too. Well, at least I'm starting to get the hang of させていただく. :D

Indeed, that does make more sense. 👍

あ〜,なるほど。
でも,"I agree with both 自分の存在自体もね and mikeって面白いねぇ〜"を日本語にするのは,難しいです。「どっちも,賛成!」とかかなあ。

ところで,日本語にする場合,bothは訳さなくてもいいことが多いですよ。

こちらこそ,よろしく。
日本語でチャットできれば楽しいでしょうね。
