  • 日本は労働文化で有名です。 <-- ? 意味がよくわかんないです。アップグレード <-- 「グレードアップ」ですかね? – Chocolate Aug 11 at 3:08

    I'm afraid that Google Translate doesn't count as translation effort, that means this question would be marked off-topic: japanese.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic – broccoli forest Aug 11 at 13:00

If by "upgrade" you mean "improve" or "better" oneself, you could use one of the following, instead of アップグレード (which is more used in technological contexts):

自分を高めたい : I want to enhance myself.

or maybe, for something a bit stronger, you could go with:

自分を向上させたい : I want to (cause) improve(ment in) myself.

or perhaps:

自分を成長させたい : I want to (cause) develop(ment in) myself.

Which is best fit use will probably depend on the exact context/nuance of what you are trying to say, but I think any of these will get the meaning across. The most straightforward of these I think is 自分を高めたい.

  • Haha yes, improve. Thank you. – mita cita Aug 11 at 3:56
