maybe the website on the instruction sheet would have alternate language instructions. forever companies have published the directions in English, French, German, & Spanish.

 

 

 

try:     Google Translate

 

sometimes it works, and sometimes the results are nothing short of comical.

Unless the kit was manufactured for export to the U.S. it probably won't be in English .   I recently sold a 1/12 Tamiya 240Z that I bought while stationed in Japan and the buyer raised heck because it was in Japanese !

 

Gary ,  if you can be more specific about what part you need translated I might be able to help .

What kit is it, and what is the kit number? You may be able to find English instructions here if you look under Fujimi...

Or Google it. Here, for example, are instructions for Fujimi's BMW 635 CSI...

If you have a smartphone, download a translator. Most will allow you to take a picture which allows the app to translate the text to English. But keep in mind, translating Japanese to English sometimes gives results that make absolutely no sense.

I have used google translator by scaning the instruction sheet. Converting it to a PDF file and the running it through the translator.  There are only a few types of files it will work on and PDF is one of them.
