I'm trying to translate a company name ("puddle") in to Japanese. I put it into Google Translate, but when you translate words, you're translating their meaning rather than the word itself, which is usually what you're looking for. But when translating a company name, essentially you want to find the letter for letter equivalent of that name.
What's the best way to approach this?
Also, how can you check that you haven't accidentally translated your company name into an obscenity?
