How can an awesome fansub group also become a great scanlation group?
HS thread.
>>
This could actually back fire. Scanlators are made of glass, throwing as much as one insult causes them to shatter and drop every series they're working on.
>>
>>115315488
Fucking this. I never understood why they always bitch around when people tell them to git gud and just drop it because their readers are being "ungrateful", even when they get enough money to wipe their asses with tanks.
>>
How are they going to translate manga without any translators.

Also I could have sworn cleaning and all that shit was more time consuming, annoying and perhaps more difficult than simply inserting a script and timing it, given they don't give a shit about encoding.
>>
>>115315530
As a TL myself at the moment, I don't really give a damn about the series I'm currently working on right now, so if people don't like the job I'm doing, I'll probably go find a series I actually want to do/move on with life.

Of course, I'm not getting paid, so...wait, people get paid to scanlate?
>>
>>115315488
>>115315530
Are there just a few really bad groups or something? I've worked on scanlation in small groups for a while and I've never come across people like that. We just put in the effort, get out chapters at a reasonable rate and we do it for free
>>
It's going to be funny to see all these little groups getting mad because their monopoly on certain titles for e-peen gets undermined.
>>
>>115315595
If you don't care about it, why are you doing it in the first place?
>>
>>115315624
It's the drama that follows the scanlation scene. Everybody loves to play the victim.
>>
>>115315660
To get practice and build up some experience and credibility.
>>
If this means I won't have to wait a billion weeks for certain releases then I am all for this.
>>
>>115315595
I appreciate the work you do. If I could reach through the monitor I would hug you.
>>
>>115315669
But the only time you should experience any drama like that is because you weren't working hard enough. If somebody steals your project because you haven't touched it in months, that's your fault. If somebody tries to steal your project when you put out 5 chapters a week, then they're retarded and are wasting their time when they could be working elsewhere.

I agree but again, the scanlation scene is a mess. Hell, /a/ made one group quit fairly recently. At least with fansubs, they is a type of structure to them but with scanlations its all over the damn place.

Step 1) Put HS pOnOs to scanlator vagOOO
Step 2) JAM IT IN!!!
Step 3) ????
Step 4) PROFIT!!!

also are you just literally going to pagiarize other people's translations and then deny it, or are you going to hire them on and bring everyone together into some sort of unholy scanlator corporation?

It all depends on how slow 'slow and steady' is. It's subjective, but if you can't put out at least one chapter a month, your project is dead and it's fair game.
>>
>>115315831
I'm not saying either party is wrong or right it's just an unfortunate thing that happens too often.
>>
How often is drama caused by a group the work of the translators, and how often is it caused by the other roles?
>>
Why is it that I never ever see all of this supposed drama from groups?
>>
>>115315906
Depends on who handles the inter-group relations and PR (so the head of the group essentially)

>>115315774
I've been "group 2" in this exact situation. In my defence group 1 had the thing on a 3-4 month hiatus after two chapters at that point (and effectively left the scene regardless a few weeks later, deleting their site and lots of releases) and I did somehow complete the thing in about a year taking a couple of hiatuses of my own.

Still, I feel bad for stealing a project even now (I didn't even plan to "steal", I was just making temporary tl for anons), but I'm trying to justify myself by thinking that it would have probably stayed untranslated to this day.

Pretty much compare any chink scanlations on, well, any series that has chink scanlations.

If there are scanlations of something, the Chinese will be scanlating it as well, and most likely be up to date.
>>
>>115316064
Gantz scans does it a lot and also constantly replaces "mom" with "mum". I've been told even people in the UK don't spell it "mum" even if they pronounce it like that so I'm forced to believe they're subhuman.

Fallen Syndicate does half the examples listed too. Actually I've seen pretty much ever scanlation group guilty of at least 4 of those, the list of ones who don't would be smaller. Utopia is usually pretty good and c_k is only ever guilty of too many translator notes.

Yes they do. Only reason to use "mom" instead is on 4chan where people will find any reason to nitpick a post without addressing what is actually being typed. Same reason a lot of Brit lingo is intentionally avoided.

>>115316081
I DISTINCTLY remember that for Mahou Sensei Negima, the only scanlation group that were putting out the chapters regularly for a while were all doing it from the Chinese scanlation group that were putting out chapters almost within a day of release (and doing a fineass quality job too).

Basically, you get the text from reading another scanlation group's work or somebody who scanned the official Chinese release, and you just use Japanese raws for typesetting, cleaning and release. Or in the case of the Negima example, using the Chinese scanlations for both.

I'm guilty of this. You can put out a great post/argument, but damn if they see you spell colour with a 'u' your whole post may as well be blank.

That's why I do all my translations with full UK spelling, so the goyim have no choice

I fucking hate TL notes, they rarely use them nowadays and if they do it's just some bullshit opinion from the translator/editor/typesetter.

Depends where you are in the UK, really. Living in the north east, I hear 'mam' more than either (probably down to 19th century Irish migration), but write mum. Mom and mum aren't different when you filter it through regional dialects.

As for writing it, 'mum' is certainly the standard.

In any case, it comes over as pretty fucking stupid to translate anything Japanese into 'mum', because it just makes me think the character has a British accent.

That happened to me a few times. I didn't bitch about it and the other groups were not fast at all. I just moved on to another series. Though it was disappointing to see the other groups stall and eventually drop the series.
>>
>>115316281
I use them if there's something that I just can't adapt (my English is rather bad, I've learned it from the internet) or it really does need an explanation - either some obscure Japanese thing that is barely googleable in Japanese itself (in a recent example making sense of some old Japanese tableware was a bitch) or, well, puns that are constructed in a way that cannot be adapted without losing the point.

Feels really bad doing this, but it does happen from time to time.

No it has been specifically named multiple times if you can't bother to read then you're either retarded or purposefully ignoring it because it's inconvenient to whatever shitty point you're trying to make.

So wait, you want an online Chinese manga reader site? Best one I know of is
http://www.8comic.com
Otherwise you would have to go the scanlation group's site itself, and they like to bury themselves in forums
Keyword "漢化組" for scanlation group, and "(Chinese title of series) 在線" for online reading. Trad or simplified shouldn't matter.
