    I purchased a Japanese biography from Amazon's Japan site. Its a small Japanese paperback of 285 pages with a paper jacket. There are no more than 17 vertical lines of kanji per page. Some of those 285 pages are blank, have images, or are chapter introduction pages. A few words in the book are English.

    I am looking for suggestions as to how to have the book translated into English on a budget. Since the book is copyrighted this would be for my private use only and could not be redistributed by the translator to any 3rd party.

    How about to post a page here for instance? You might be able to get a hint of what is written there.

    That unfortunately would violate the publisher's copyright.

    One page wouldn't.

    Who is the author?
