comment Kana to kanji mapping for a rōmaji keyboard
@nkjt, The selection of hiragana, katakana, and kanji symbols appearing in the narrowed IME are determined by a translation services company. All selections are vetted by ICR (in-country review). However, your comments are indeed helpful.

comment Kana to kanji mapping for a rōmaji keyboard
@Dave: I disagree. Perhaps my original wording was unclear, but there were no technical aspects intended in the original post. The question fundamentally remains: can anyone provide resources to assist me in building a dictionary. As I see the problem, it remains simply one of "transliteration of a particular word." I have the technical aspects well in hand.

@cypher The text entry system is limited to processing 1-3 katakana symbols at a time, yielding ~6000 kanji symbols. The breaking up and parsing you mention are not within the current scope. EDICT appears to solve the problem nicely - although I don't yet have a method for retrieving all valid pairs and triples of katakana symbols in an convenient, timely manner.

@Dave: The FAQ states that questions should be "practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face". I believe my question falls squarely under the guidelines as they are stated. In essence, the question is directed to translating katakana to kanji - a topic that is well-represented on this exchange.

Absolutely! Especially since I've also discovered that the kana to kanji mapping should be considered as a suggestion. Thus, the user should be provided a means of accepting or rejecting the provided kanji. :|

Agreed, I'm creating a dictionary, and I need this list of kana -> kanji conversions. I will check out EDICT. Since the application is a medical device with limited scope, the dictionary isn't as daunting as it might first appear.

I recognize the challenge - hence my question :) WNN appears to be a good start, but this an embedded application with resource limitations that remove WNN from consideration. Furthermore, the WNN license seems a bit murky for commercial use.
