為 seems a bit like the word 'para' in Spanish... give or take a few uses, no?
tame is also used sometimes to mean "therefore/so", like [node] 何も出ていないため、ユーザーは何をしていいか分からないと思います。 nothing pops out,so the user doesnt know what to do
hah, I've NEVER seen the kanji for tame before.
thats why i made the batch form, so i can speed ahead!
Two slightly different usages here (split them out if you want to). 1. 'In order to' 2. 'Because of'
Usually either ___の為に___ or [V-る]為に___. But not always :-P
