  • You might want to keep that window closed as some rainwater may come in.

  • Shall we leave the window closed? We don't want the rain coming inside.

    play icon

Both of these answers begin in a similar way, in that you are suggesting to your friend or someone that they will most probably want to keep the window closed as some water may come in the window.
The second answer "Shall we leave the window closed? We don't want the rain coming inside" is a subtle hint that if the window is opened then water will come in through it.
どちらの回答もよく似た形で始まります、友達などに、窓から雨が入ってくるかもしれないので、窓を閉めたままにしておいた方がいいことを提案しています。

"Shall we leave the window closed? We don't want the rain coming inside"
(窓を閉めたままにしておこうか。雨が入ってきたらいけないから。)

この2つ目の回答は、もし窓を開けると、雨が入ってくるというさりげないヒントです。

  • Maybe it would be better if we don't open the window.

  • It might be better if we left the window closed.

    play icon

 "Maybe it would be better if we don't open the window."
 「窓は開けない方がいいかも」"better"は「より良い」という意味で、"window"は「窓」に相当します。あと。"may be"は次の例文の"might be"の同意語で、「かもしれない」という意味を持っています。

 "It might be better if we left the window closed."
 「窓を閉めたままに置いたほうがいいかも」

 参考になれば幸いです。

There is more than one way to convey your thoughts on keeping the window closed.
You can also say:
It seems like it's raining quite heavily outside, we might want to keep the window closed.

If you open the window, the rain will splatter everywhere.

Splatter: is a word used with water. Meaning it goes everywhere. Water splatters.

All these sentences can be used interchangeably in formal and informal settings.
Hope this helps!
この考えについて伝える言い方はいくつかあります。

次のように言うこともできます。

It seems like it's raining quite heavily outside, we might want to keep the window closed.(雨すごく強いみたいだから、窓は閉めておいた方がいいかもしれない)

If you open the window, the rain will splatter everywhere.(窓を開けると、そこら中水が飛び散るよ)

"Splatter" は水に関する言葉です。水が飛び散ることを表します。

これらの文はどれもフォーマルな場面でもインフォーマルな場面でも、置き換えて使うことができます。

参考になれば幸いです!

  • Perhaps we should keep the window closed while it's still raining?

    play icon

  • Let's wait until the rain stops before we open the window.

    play icon

The first phrase is a polite way of suggesting it would be best to keep the window closed for now, but that it can be opened once the rain stops. It also asks for the agreement of the other person.

The second phrase is still polite, but is more of a statement than a question, and shows the person you do not want the window opened until the rain stops.
一つ目の例は丁寧な言い方です。「雨がやんだら窓を開けてもいいけど今は閉めておいた方がいい」と伝えています。最後に、相手の同意を求めています。

二つ目の例も丁寧ですが、これは質問というよりは指示で、「雨がやむまでは窓を開けて欲しくない」と伝えます。

  • You might not want to do that since it's raining.

"Might" is a good word to use here because it is a polite way to make a suggestion. "Since" in this sentence is the same as "because." I hope that this helps. :)
"Might" はこの場面にピッタリです。これは相手に提案をするときの丁寧な言い方です。

"Since" はここでは "Because"(なぜなら)と同じ意味です。

You might want to keep that window closed - Both of these sentences highlights ways to advise that by opening the window the water from the rain will enter the house or building therefore this phrase is used to advise The Listener to keep the windows closed so the water will not be able to come inside the property. Both of these sentences you can use to express your desire to keep the windows closed.
You might want to keep that window closed(その窓は閉めておいた方がいいかもしれない)

英訳例はどちらも、「窓を開けると雨が降り込む」と伝える言い方です。ですから、このフレーズを使って、雨が降り込まないよう窓は閉めておいた方がいいとアドバイスできます。

どちらの例も、窓を閉めておいて欲しい話し手の気持ちを表します。

Well, in this situation it really depends on your role in this scene. Are you the householder or owner of the building? Do you have any authority? Or are you just a member of the public? How much do you really want to get involved here? One of the above suggestions may fit.

  • Opening the window right now might not be the best idea because the rain will come inside.

  • You might want to rethink opening the window right now because the rain will come in.

If you would like to tell someone that they might nit want to open a window now because the rain will come in, you can say something like "You might want to rethink opening the window right now because the rain will come in.". By saying words like "rethink", this tell someone that maybe the should think again before doing something.

Using this sentence is a good way to politely describe that it is not a good idea to open the window up because the rain will be able to get in the room, when rain/water get's inside it can damage certain materials, for example: causing wood to rot, if the water is not cleaned up quickly and the wood doesn't get the chance to dry out.

Notice that in the first two examples, you can see that there can be clause movements within the sentence focused around the conjunction, "if." The third example shows a general sentence if you wanted to offer the suggestion to the person rather than an explanation as to why not to open the window.
