Over the past year or so I've compiled a list of Japanese player names with English translations, so when new match videos come out I can work out who's who and label the video accordingly.
I can't translate in any language and use the fairly limited Google Language Tool
. However a fair few people have helped in a major way to develop this list properly and I wish to write them some thanks.
A BIG THANK YOU for your sterling work, time and effort for helping with translations

Also, I'd like to thank Jida
for continually being on the look out for new players for the list.
All new names will be added separate, at the top until a translation is made.
I've organised it so that someone who doesn't read Japanese can logically go through the list quickly and easily to find a name.
So firstly the players are grouped by the character they use alphabetically, so Alex, Chun Li, Dudley etc. Within that group players with the smallest number of Japanese characters are first and players with the most last.
Players who use more than one character will have their name included in those groups as well.
To quick search this list use the 'Find' function on your browser e.g. Ctl+F in Explorer. Firefox etc. and type in the name or paste the Japanese in. If it's here it'll highlight it. If not let me know so I can add it to the top for a translation.
The main point to this list was to give an index of Japanese names as a reference point rather than a list of all known Japanese players. However, to avoid obvious omissions like RX, TM etc. I've decided to now include English names as people might not be aware they exist and seeing as some of them are excellent players it would be a shame to omit them as you may want to look up their matches for research/entertainment etc.
Hopefully this will prove useful and if you spot any inaccuracies then please let me know.
