    Korean Game Title

    Would like some help in translating the Korean title screen on this Semicom 96 funny fighting game.

    I believe it says SD Fighters. The second character is hard to distinguish between an A sound and an I sound.
    SD = super deformed, I think?

    I did a quick Google search, and this is what I came up with:

    SD파이터즈 대전격투게임-1996/11

    I entered that into Babel Fish and got:

    The (Super Deformed) green onion sprouts, electrification grapple game

    Found a web-page for SEMiCOM too:

    Hmm... for some reason the Korean characters aren't being displayed... Oh well, you can find a listing for the game, in Korean, here:

    http://www.semicom.com/semicom/Prd.htm

    It's on the left side of the page, around the middle. It's the listing for 1996/11.

    Ah, yes. That's much clearer.
    It says:
    SD Fighters, Competition Grappling Game.

    LOL - the title is technically (in new South Korean government romanization), "SD Paiteojeu" (or SD P'ait'j in McCune-Reischauer (with circumflex in place of breve))- this is a straight-forward transliteration of "Fighters."

    So when you Babelfish it, it searches for specific morphemes that make sense in Korean, such as "pa" = wave, then it searches for "teo," "jeu," etc, rather than recognizing it as a transliteration.

    Edit - for some reason I can't get my Korean to show up. I usually write in Korean using Mac OSX, but oh well, I romanized it.

    If you try entering paiteojeu in Babelfish, you get all kinds of funny stuff. My favorite is "Wave Plan" - recognizes pa like mulkyeol, and teo as plan, like in "teoida" - more evidence that machine translation's got a bit of a way to go.

    @tsuka - pa is Korean for Japanese "negi," hence the wacky translation.
