Japanese is too ambiguous for CAT tools to make any difference. しょうがない Doesn't always mean "it can't be helped". Any part of the sentence can be arbitrarily omitted. You have the overhead of transcription for almost no benefit at all, if you're translating manga.

/subs/ is a board dedicated to translating and enjoying translated work, mainly from a Japanese scene, but also including works produced in other languages. While the most likely candidate for translation is going to be English, other languages are also very much appreciated.


Rules are simple:

>Abide by the global rules (no CP, no gore, no doxing)

>Request threads are allowed, but being pedantic and bumping your own thread too much may be subject to some restrictions

>All written content is allowed, including Mangas, subs for cartoons, videogame patches and news outlets

>Unless necessary for the specified work, keep politics to a minimum

>Lewds are allowed if spoilered

>Plugging your own external websites and fan groups is also allowed, but keep advertisements to a moderate level, I don't wanna go around deleting half a thread just because you really want to attract new translators

>Typesetting, redrawing and fonts threads are also allowed

That being said, I hope we'll be able to get some quality OC, so keep up the good work!

I know that most often than not they're just some poorly translated Chink-to-English and then back into other languages shoddy jobs, but it baffles me that so many high-end products, even from illustrious companies, tend to have loads of mistakes and typos.

I guess this is just due to it being offloaded to some Indian farmer or something, but have you ever experienced something like that? When instructions sound completely mistranslated?

Theyre punched through machine translation without oversight, the grand mystery behind it is that chinks are cheap shits that dont want to pay white man wages so they just tell the accountaint to run the thing as is through an editor and pay him half a sack of rice later.
