New Poll - Scanlation Quality
(21 posts, 2848 views) Posted: 1274d 6h, 52m ago by Kirjava in News
Like others have mentioned, image quality has gone up significantly in the past years. No question.

Translation quality though? Still shit. ...
New Poll - Fonts (v2)
(70 posts, 14483 views) Posted: 1491d 9h, 35m ago by Kirjava in News
Something tells me you haven't read the first couple of volumes of Black Lagoon scanlated by Akatsuki Manga. No one I've seen in scanlation has come close to matching Vorbis' work there. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to find out tha ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 12993 views) Posted: 1531d 23h, 33m ago by Kirjava in News
Quote from cmertb
It's not the translator's job to embellish the original. Any translator who does that becomes a co-author, and to me it's not acceptable.

If the translated line is able to convey the same intent as the original despite being reword ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 12993 views) Posted: 1532d 23h, 29m ago by Kirjava in News
Translation is not a one-to-one mapping. There are many ways of saying all of the phrases I mentioned depending on (1) context and (2) the personality of the character saying the line. Just because manga authors can't be arsed to come up with varied dialo ...

Ahaha, that blog is the best. We need something like this in the scanlation community. So much butthurt and hilarity would ensue, and I would enjoy every single minute of it. ...
New Poll - Bad Spelling/Grammar
(81 posts, 12993 views) Posted: 1533d 6h, 53m ago by Kirjava in News
Bad grammar and spelling is a deal breaker for me. People who don't have a good grasp of the English language have no business translating, EVER. Unfortunately, 90% of the "translators" in this community fall under this category, so we' ...

Multiple scan group coverage on a single series
(8 posts, 850 views) Posted: 1805d 22h, 48m ago by Kirjava in Manga General
What I have observed is that usually, these competing groups have different standards, and each group wants to have it their way. So, one group might have better editors preferring to prioritize scan quality over translation, and the other group might have a better ...

Releases for Yankee-kun have been really slow lately because our group is short on cleaners right now. If you've got the spare time and are good with redraws, please come help out!

We're back... again...

So on top of needing cleaners (as usual), we really need somebody fluent in Japanese to help out our translator, sort of like a translation checker for the things he's not too sure of.

Thanks! ...

Hey guys!

Mahou-X is a group that works on Yankee-kun to Megane-chan. If you're familiar with the series, you'll know that the current scans are about 70 chapters behind the raws, and despite our best efforts, that gap isn't getting any smaller ...
