People consider it quite exotic to see their names written in foreign characters. Any touristic place you go to, you will see dozens waiting in line to have their names imprinted on local artifacts in different alphabets. Now, it’s super easy to this, thanks to Google Translate. If you just click on the following link and enter your name in your language, you can not only see how it’s written in Japanese but also hear how Japanese people will pronounce your name. For instance if you are Mr. Smith they’ll call you SUMISU, if you are Jason, you are likely to be called JASOHN, etc.
