The current template text translates as "This user writes a certain level of Japanese literature" -- pretty sure that's not what is meant. Suggest one of:

  • この利用者はある程度の日本語を書けます。
  • この利用者は中級の日本語をかけます。

Yes, the current message is wrong. Both your replacement suggestions are okay, but I can suggest a possibly different construction that may be better:
  • この利用者は2級の日本語能力を有しています。
or
  • この利用者の日本語作文能力は2級です。
What do you think? Koyashi 15:36, 23 May 2006 (CDT)
I think 中級 is more meaningful than 2級. The number 2 is already displayed in large print, the message is supposed to elaborate/explain, not to repeat. As for the construction, I don't think my japanese is good enough to make a comment on it d-: Though if possible, I would tend to prefer something that more neutrally indicates ability in written Japanese (reading and writing), as opposed to specifically writing Japanese. -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 15:47, 23 May 2006 (CDT)
In that case, I think my first suggestion with minor modifications is best.
  • この利用者は中級の日本語読書力を有しています。

What is the likelyhood of mis-interpreting 読書力 as "book-reading ability" as opposed to "read/write ability"? I know I mis-interpreted it on the first pass, but then I'm the one with intermediate level d-: -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 16:06, 23 May 2006 (CDT)
In Japanese it just means general reading/writing ability. I think 読書 has a different meaning in Chinese which might have misled you. Koyashi 16:14, 23 May 2006 (CDT)
Indeed, because even in Japanese 書 is the kanji for hon, so I wasn't sure. ^^ -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 21:14, 23 May 2006 (CDT)

move to ja-2[edit source]

suggesting to move to Category:Users/Language/jaw-2 to keep with the other japanese ;) Alexanderpas Monk Talk 22:12, 31 July 2006 (CDT)

This is for read/write ability, which can differ very significantly from speaking ability. -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 22:31, 31 July 2006 (CDT)
suggesting to include an english text (translation) into this template too for those who have jaw-0 ;) (otherwise it's gonna show up in the future stub category) Alexanderpas Monk Talk 10:19, 1 August 2006 (CDT)
