You may have heard that we recently localized the Stack Exchange engine to Portuguese and the site has been doing quite well! We're now starting the work for a few other target languages, and one of them is Japanese.
Sidenote: this doesn't mean that this site will be localized to Japanese (unless the community wants it) -- we're just asking for help since you're our resident Japanese-language experts.
What we need your help with:
We're working with professional translators who are great at what they do, but don't necessarily know all the quirks of Stack Exchange. They've taken a stab at translating all of the Stack Exchange special terms (like "reputation" or "bounty") but want us to look over it and see if they got the sense right. That's where you come in: we'd like you (if you can) to look over their translations of these ~30 terms and tell us if they got them right.
So, I've appended the full list to the bottom here. If you see something that looks wrong, please post one suggested correction per answer. If others agree, they can vote up your answer or comment on it -- not the best system, but we'll see how it goes.
