Knowing the kind of intelligent, resourceful people I find all over this site, I am hopeful someone can help.

I recently resurrected a short novel I wrote some time ago, and have started re-writing it. But I have lost most of my back story. The majority of which is not a problem, but there is one part that I would like to have and I'm not sure where I got the information in the first place. :eek:

There is a Japanese folk hero named Kan Shin. There is a Korean folk hero with a similar name who may or may not be connected. I have found some evidence of these two online, but since I can't read Japanese or Korean I can't dig any deeper. (It takes a lot of work to run a phrase at a time through translation.com.)

In my story there is a character named after this folk hero, and want to be able to point back to his namesake. It's not a vital element of the story, but it would be nice to have. If anyone has any ideas, information, directions, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

OKay, go to the website you cant translate.
Then right click on the web screen and look for languages. Sometimes works :)
