Get a tattoo of your name in Japanese?

We’re in week 9 now (๐Ÿ˜ฑ), whichย means Makerthon. In the beginning of the week we could pitch ideas, selected our favourite ideas and vote which one we want to do this week.

So for me this means, I’m now working on creating an European to Japanese name converter. So than Anne becomes (insert jp here) ๐Ÿ™‚

First we we’re looking for an API but there aren’t any free ones available (or they didn’t work as we wanted them to), so we’ve decided to write our own algorithm which seems is challenging but fun I think ๐Ÿ™‚

(And really only Misa from our team will be able to tell if it’s wrong ๐Ÿ˜)

We’re hoping to have our MVP by end of today and then we want to implement some more fun stuff, such as linking to tattoo studios in the user’s area, so they can get a tattoo with their Japanese name ๐Ÿ˜‚.
