I know that 断る means decline, but I couldn't find the meaning of accept.

I want to say something like "I accept your offer"

    What did you find when you tried? Lots of entries in a Japanese-English dictionary will include some form of "accept."

  • Well, when I wrote it into Japandict, i found 合う、受付、常識 and whatnot and none of them were actually related to the original search

    None??? I find that a bit hard to comprehend. It seems that there are a few plausible ones depending on the context: なっとくする, 受け入れる, 採用する. Granted, from the first search 受け入れる might be harder to find. But the others are there. How deeply did you dig into the first list?

    What kind of acceptance are we talking about here? When you say "I accept your offer", are you referring to an "offer" like a proposed salary increase, or like an object that someone is physically trying to give you? Because I think those will require different kinds of responses. One could also "accept" information, or even something like bad news, which I would say are also different senses that might require different translations. Commented Feb 19 at 13:28
