Just found out Google Translate allows you to click on a suggested translation to get a better one. For example, Shikke ( しっけ ) was translated to me as humidity. The first word that shows in Google Translate is moisture. By clicking on the word "moisture", I can then see alternate translations and even enter in my own.
Since I've been using Google Translate to remember all the words and phrases I've learnt, this is going to be so much more helpful. http://translate.google.com/#ja/en/%E3%81%97%E3%81%A3%E3%81%91
