Traditional Chinese fonts

Meryem, you 'll need some good-looking fonts for the tee-shirt. For traditional Chinese, you can find some here.

Can it be presented in a running horizontal string like in English, this will fit best into the design? Excuse my ignorance of your language.

Those of you who understand Japanese, I want to confirm or have opinions on the translation.

Our world, your vision.

Warerano Sekai, Kimino Shikan.

Vision is the hard word to translate because it means mind and visual. In Japanese, these are separated to several words. We can keep it as vision but transcribed in Katakana.
Shikan means vision but less meaning with "mind" but I thought better than "shikaku" which is most commonly used for expressing the ability to see. Shikan makes it look like has feeling to it.

Kaku, why don't you write it in Japanese?
My wife is not sure of the end:
われの世界、君の視点?

Japanese font would be great. But as with Ben I will need it written into a document and accompanied by the font you've written it in :-) ! Once you've done that send it to mdtmail@yahoo.co.uk

cheers

Wasn't sure If I could type Japanese here.

我らの世界、君の視感

視感is another word for 視覚、but makes it sounds more with feeling instead of sight.
視点 is not a bad one if you want it to make it sound like "View point".

我らの世界、君のヴィジョン is also good one because vision just written in katakana.

Kaku
You can type it here but I can't see it because I don't have the font installed. If you use Illustrator could you send me a Version 8 or before file saved as vector curves, then I don't need the font.

It would be nice to have it written properly.

I know that is why I was avoiding in the beginning.
I want others' opinion before I make the file.

By the way, how thick you want the font to be?

Mat, is your computer as old as your Corel Draw? ;)
For info, I have Windows XP English version and I can see Chinese and Japanese without a problem.

I work in 3d graphics so as you can imagine my machine has to be rapido! Corel 10 just does everything I want from a vector program.....why upgrade!

Kaku- Just a fairly standard font, you can give me a few examples if you like.

Cheers :)
