As for your Japanese-language title suggestion / grammar, I doubt your or anyone's knowledge of Japanese could be dodgier than mine.

According to Google Translate English to Japanese, I put in "the one ring" and I get "1Tsu no ringu".

For what it's worth, the Japanese word for 'finger-ring' is yubiwa. Ringu is simply a Japanese iteration of the English 'ring' just as anime is derived from 'animation'.

Psst, somehow I found myself in Tol Eressea a couple of posts ago, could you believe? Looks like the grey ship gets around to leaving port eventually.

Japanese Translation [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To

According to Google Translate English to Japanese, I put in "the one ring" and I get "1Tsu no ringu".

"Ringu" is a cognate of the English word, but it is for such as a boxing ring. The kind of ring we are referring here, as mentioned above, is "yubiwa". Google apparently expects that you know that "1Tsu" is pronounced "hitotsu". So, the translation we want should say "Hitotsu no Yubiwa".

I noticed the same problem with online translators for 'ring', but you have stated it much more clearly. I only wonder if your translation is precise enough to mean 'The (or 'That) One Ring' as opposed to 'A One Ring'.

There is no grammatical articles such as "the", "a" or "an" in Japanese. So, we have to supply it according to context and what is idiomatic in English. Since "Hitotsu" connotes there is only one of something, it would be best translated as "The One". I would think if we want to say "That Ring", we need to say "Ano Yubiwa". I would translate "A One Ring" as "Are no Hitotsu no Yubiwa". But, yes, when translating Japanese to English, sometimes we must use judgement about what works best to preserve the original meaning of the author and yet don't sound ridiculous in English.
