comment Meaning of 腐っていく
What song? What are the rest of the lyrics? Why do you think something that means "to rot" would be a sexual pun? We're going to need a bit more information to answer this! Also are you sure there's some deeper meaning to this?

comment Difference between 区別 and 差別
This question is receiving a bit of negative feedback in votes. You might want to add to your question that explains a little bit more why you're confused, where the ambiguity is, where you've looked so far to find the answer, etc.

comment How to say don't tire/wear yourself out?
If you really want to drive the point home you could say 体調を崩さないように気をつけて下さい, which is saying to be careful not to do something to cause great deterioration in physical condition

comment How is 自然と being used in this sentence?
"frequent the town through its many ferries" feels like it misses the nuance a little bit. The idea is that people end up in this town because that's where the ferries are. If you say it your way it feels to me like people are using ferries to get to that town specifically whereas people are using the town to get to the ferries. @Yakobu

I tried editing your question to make it into something a little less "please check my translation." Please change anything if it doesn't match what you need help with.

Is there any way you can identify the parts about the sentence that make you think your translation might be wrong and make it into a question about Japanese rather than a proofreading request?

Adding a new comment to a really old conversation, but I have seen 魔 as in 魔法 written with 广+マ too

comment How to say “person who is consistent” (in romaji) ? Is it a Japanese principle?
筋を通す seems like a likely candidate, but I'm concerned that there's no real way to know the correct answer to this question for sure

comment 「春じゃもの」の「じゃもの」はどういう意味?
Not necessarily true: In the word 妻{め}じゃ者 it's used as である. But.. if だ is acting as a 連体形 in that case and not like in "だもの"... well anyway see here: dictionary.goo.ne.jp/leaf/jn2/217402/m0u

comment Long phrase translation: あの子とも違う秘密を持ったみたいで後ろめたい気分だ
Ideally you would break this question up into several more generalized separate questions instead of asking 4 in 1.

comment What does 気が遠い mean?
Can you at least try to explain what you do know already and where the source of your confusion is? Perhaps attempt a translation yourself.

comment When should I use ~ている vs. ~ています?
Where are you seeing these examples and explanations? The difference between plain form and polite form is one of those things you learn on your first day studying Japanese.

I may be wrong, but isn't this the 連体形?
