I came across this while searching for some word trivia:

There is one set of eight letters which make ten words.The letters are
A, E, G, I, N, R, S, T, what are the 10 words?

The webpage I found it on is cached here:

It's in a foreign language, so I can't figure out how to get the
answers. Can anyone help find them?

In which language do the words need to be?

Must each of the ten words use all eight letters, or are there other rules?

Fantastic! It was a weird word puzzle that frustrated me more because
the web page it was on was in Chinese/Japanese. Thank you very much.
