@agelastic Yep, I did the Google Translate thing too, and its thesaurus seems to work well. “Swagger” is perfect.

I should’ve said “cute” or “kitsch” not “cheesy”. I don’t fully get things like kawaii (かわいい) but I’m not denigrating it. Opposite, in fact.

I guess most people griping about this don’t know that type (“font”) licensed need be to paid for on a per-user basis.
