New to singing questions about translating lyrics...

Hey, I've been into music for a while, I'm a hobby producer aka I don't make money doing it. I recently got into english anime covers on youtube, I never checked them out before but I did and I was amazed with some of them, now I'm thinking of trying to do some of my own (I'm a guy totally gunna sing fuwafuwatime)


Anyway I had question about getting the lyrics, I barely speak any japanese so I can't translate, so what would be the best way to find lyrics to sing?

http://www.animelyrics.com/

Should I use this site and try to make the lyrics into more singable phrases?

You can find translyrics online, ex : ytchorusJubyPhonics, AmaLee, Personal blogs, etc. Just make sure to credit.

If you're trying to make your own, you can find lots of tips from Juby (tumblr & wordpress' FAQ), and ytchorus' threads. 

I don't speak japanese either but I've tried writing translyrics, not pro tho. So, from my expirience, instead of making lyrics into more singable phrase, it's better to understand the song and write new lyrics in diffrent language. Trying to rhyme, and remembering the number of syllables. 

Another way to get translyric is to ask people to make one. Some people take requests, tho I haven't seen one in a while since I stop engagging with youtaite world. I've taken one myself but, I think I dissapointed the requester.

Hey thanks! Yeah I mainly wanted to do my own lyrics, I know to keep syllables the same, and thats good advice definitly gotto understand the meaning of the song before writing lyrics. If you have any links to those YTchorus topics to make your own lyrics I'd apperciate it! I'm gunna go search some more and try to find some. 


How come you stopped engagging with youtaite world? You don't have to answer just curious.

A good on is here . But when you're done with your translyrics, you can make a account (if you don't have one) and ask for critique in that site. 

I engage myself with youtaite world because I can't speak nor read japanese, and I wanna make friends who can speak english. But at the end, I want to learn more japanese and get use to the language. Plus, I don't like youtube because, I never liked youtube. Oh, and 'some' youtaites are annoying because they want popularity. Tho I like those who sings for fun because I have fun listening to their covers.
