Yup, that's what I'm looking for. Not how to draw them but more image and translation.
I've tried a couple of sites but found them to be a bit less than accurate.

I always found translating Kanji to be very difficult, as there are just so many.

I ended up using the tools in the Asian languages kit built into windows, as it's got a pretty good way to find the right one, based on it's component parts, then it's just a matter of cut and pasting the kanji into

Heya pele - been studying japanese for a few years now so always on the look out for good kanji sites..

best one i've found for what your after so far is actually a program called 'moji' which you install (with kanji and word dictionaries) as a part of mozilla firefox.

here's the site

it opens as a sidebar on your browser and you can find the meanings of kanji by highlighting them then clicking on the kanji icon on the moji sidebar

hope this helps smile
