Out of curiosity, can anyone read me the left hand side? I was told it makes the statement that I am a Chung Kim student. But I have a thing for languages, so Im curious about the precise wording.

I just used Google translate on this image and the right hand side says Lisa Collins. However, I dont believe what Google translate suggests the left hand side says夷ts rather色controversial. I can personal message a screenshot of it, to you, if you like.

Yes, I knew the right side. The lady that runs the business side of the school actually missed the S on the end the first time she wrote it and I had to ask her to recheck it. Im fine knowing the left side, whatever it says. Thats why I asked

I just downloaded the app and tried it myself. If it makes you feel any better, the founding GM of my school was named Chung Eun Kim.

It also read my last name as Knife Rinse. So.

Im not sure what the first part of your post means but I did cross check the hangul you have on your belt online (篧) and id does say what Google translate suggests.

But, its absolutely fine, you live in a free country and can have whatever you like emblazoned upon your belt!

Basically Im saying you cant necessarily ALWAYS trust online translations or app translations.

If you reorder what the app says, and remember that the J sound and the Ch sound are made by the same character, it is my founding GMs (who emigrated to the US in the 1970s) name. Also, the fact that it says Knife Rinse for my last name, and Juggernaut Episode for the bottom left, makes its accuracy suspicious enough to question whether it is expressing his name correctly.

I have learned to be very cautious about online translations of any language. My high school Spanish teacher told us to always translate everything back the other way to make absolutely certain it was saying what we really wanted to say. Ive had some pretty interesting results in my day. Depending on context, the verb mandar could mean drive, send, or order (a person to do something). Online translators dont always guess right.
