Have you Translated any Anime/Manga works? If so what did you do?

This is a blue board which means that it's for everybody (Safe For Work content only). If you see any adult content, please report it.

If you don't want to read any typed words:
I will post a simple cut catgirl-doijin I translated but didn't release anywhere before this HDD dies and it is lost forever.

In short:
How is your Japanese? How close or literal a translation do you do (direct use of honorifics and idioms)?
Are you part of a translation group? Did you do more than just translation?
What were they?
Where did you upload them?
Do you keep track of them? If so, how?
Were they popular? Are they still popular? Do you care?
Have they disappeared offline?
Do you have any unreleased items still? If so why don't you release them?

In long:
My Japanese is crap but I've worked on several small translations over a few years. I don't like doing a direct translation preferring to adjust text to fit the bubbles and spaces on the page, finding equivalent English idioms or phrases, leaving out honorifics unless necessary to get social status etc. across.
I am not part of a group, much of what I did was providing text translations for others to typeset for existing scans and haven't worked on anything important or popular, mostly single pages that were left out of other groups translation projects, Pixiv items, short weird doujin etc. Almost all of them were uploaded to various websites and forum threads which no longer exist or have little traffic. I saw something I had worked on was added to MAL recently but there was no way to easily read it and thought maybe I should keep track of them, set up a website, join a group or Batoto or something...

...anyhow here is your catgirl!

It looks like the last and second last "post script" and contact details pages are corrupted. So may have to upload them as raws with text as a comment.

>>110152208
No worries, I know I'll personally save all this. And that's what the archive's for, too.
That ftp is primarily serializations and some sadpanda, but something rarer like this would be making good use of it, plus it'd be keeping it all within /a/.

Thanks for the work.

>How is your Japanese? How close or literal a translation do you do (direct use of honorifics and idioms)?
Native speaker. It depends on honorifics (if I'm picking up a series where previous translations used them I'll keep it for the sake of consistency), but I prefer to keep them out. Translation is translation, not transliteration.

>Are you part of a translation group? Did you do more than just translation?
No, I do everything myself.

>Where did you upload them?
Mediafire and mangatraders, but lately just batoto.

>Do you keep track of them? If so, how?
I have copies of everything I've scanlated on my hard drive.

>Were they popular? Are they still popular? Do you care?
Yes, yes, not really. If I cared about popularity I'd be doing whatever FotM thing just got an anime (Tokyo Ghoul, Akame ga Kill, etc) and then dropping them once the anime ended.

>Have they disappeared offline?
What

>Do you have any unreleased items still? If so why don't you release them?
Yes, I have a bunch. I haven't released them because I don't have the time to work on them and I don't want to juggle several projects at once, what with the working by myself thing and all.

Some things I have translated are RATHER adult, have you translated such items and had any issue hosting them or uploading to Batoto etc?

>>Have they disappeared offline?
>What
Many places I uploaded things to caterede to niche interests and when the owner/moderator moved on domain names lapsed, no new content is allowed etc so they essentially no longer exist. Perhaps in someones personal backup somewhere but that's no good for new readers. I was just curious how common this is... guess it's my fault for being involved in niche online communities :p

>>110153275
>Some things I have translated are RATHER adult, have you translated such items and had any issue hosting them or uploading to Batoto etc?
Yes and I don't upload them to Batoto, why would you do that. Put them on sadpanda or something. If they're just adult material but not outright porn then they should be fine on Batoto, just remember to add the adult material tag.

>Many places I uploaded things to caterede to niche interests and when the owner/moderator moved on domain names lapsed, no new content is allowed etc so they essentially no longer exist.

It's your responsibility to have the copies on hand so that you can reupload them somewhere else. This sort of situation only happens because you let it.

Useful information. I'll try to upload some things I think are borderline and see how they react.

>It's your responsibility to have the copies on hand so that you can reupload them somewhere else. This sort of situation only happens because you let it.
Thankfully I do have copies of most things on hand so I can re-upload them. As many items were collaborations where I just uploaded the text translations, sometimes I didn't see the reply with the finished items. As for why I'd like to upload more adult works to Batoto, I would rather have a "one-stop-shop" location for everything as I am lazy I guess. Never thought of sadpanda for those things for some reason... Appreciate the feedback.

????????????????????????To all new and long time readers, good afternoon!
??????????????????????? Kubocha here. How did you find this time's creation?
???SF?????????????????????? This time the plan was to draw a Scifi thing, however halfway through
????????????????????it had?become a fantasy. So anyway
???????????? I couldn't really progress and then it struck me...
???????????? What I'm saying is! I think next I want to draw
?????????? a Nekomimi grappler manga!
??????????? I'm thinking of the story with
???????????? a really weak/feeble
?????????? character who is
????????starving and wants to attempt to
??????????use tricks/cheat/disguise/deceit
???????????
???????????? or something like that kinda thing!
???????????incidentally this is a working design of a character to the left.
??????????????

???????????? It's possible that the characters could all become totally different, as well as lots of other things.
??????????????
????Possibility??????????
?????????????Stick? So anyhow, for sticking with me through this to the end, you truly have my thanks!

Translator's Note: I hope you've you enjoyed reading this cute little comic as much as I have enjoyed translating it. Thanks to the creator for making this little Dawww-fest, my wonderful Nyamo for help in better understanding what the author was saying and how best to say it in English, also to YOU for taking the time to read it. I hope to scan and translate more rare fan-made comics from our collection. I hope that it will encourage you to try reading them in their original form and even supporting the artists and circles (maybe even go all-out crazy and learn some Japanese or visit Comiket). Many of these people create only a handful of copies and sell them at a loss, so the least you can do is give them a thanks on their website or voice your support via email (I will always try to provide homepages & email addresses for this reason). -ACN

OK, that's it! Let me know what you think. If someone wants to zip and upload it post a link. If anyone else wants to answer any of the questions from the first post I'll leave this thread on auto-update and check occasionally to respond to them.

Thanks and Enjoy!

So basically some asshole finds a catgirl, is a raging douche to it for 20 pages,and then decides maybe he shouldn't be such a turbo cuntnozzle after all ONLY AFTER selling her to a pedophile. Right. Awful story, but serious props to you for translating it.

Nice work OP
>>
Thanks bro, I liked this short manga.
>>
>>110155244
Got it in one! I think I should use this as the summary.

There's not much time to read and analyse what you're buying at Comiket. It's basically:get the bible/guide book; look at the tiny picture and try to decipher what style/series/genre/kink each circle will be offering and do you thin you can enjoy it; on the day when you get to table, generally I had about 30 seconds to check the cover, flick through and decide if it worth ~$5-10 before wading back through the maddening crowds.

>>110155496
Thanks

Great work.

Let that be known to the world that catgirls are cute

Batoto is run by tumblr retards, don't upload borderline-h there because it'll get blocked, unless it's hardcore yaoi of course.
>>
>>110156027
Actually, I'm uploading Tsugumomo fine on it, I don't remember seeing any borderline-h banned.

Most ones banned are ones with actual sex, such as Gantz. Though, it is annoying. (I mean, why have Mature filter if there's going to be censorship for it?)
>>
>>110156284
Well, stuff like KnJ is banned. And that one with the slutty 13year olds. I guess they just don't like loli.
>>
>>110156675
Also, some yaoi got banned too, so Iunno, I guess it is weird.

KnJ was banned with lot of sites that doesn't have their own ad network (only one that pops up in my mind is MangaFox-owned ones)

Also
>slutty 13 year olds
Now I'm curious

>>110151668
>How is your Japanese? How close or literal a translation do you do (direct use of honorifics and idioms)?
Amateur, lacking in a lot of vocabulary. However, I tried to make up for it by spending more time to proofread everything I did. I tried to keep my tl as close as possible unless I could not figure out a natural way to phrase it. Honorifics are kept only in Japanese settings, English equivalents of idioms are preferred, unless puns or some sort of symbolism is being made.
>Are you part of a translation group? Did you do more than just translation?
No, did solo projects so I learned to clean and typeset to make them the minimum level of presentability.
>What were they?
A few Ika Musume chapters, an Oumagadoki Doubutsuen chapter, a few Fairy Tail chapters and a single page of Banana no Nana which I posted on /a/ to trick people into thinking a new chapter was out
>Where did you upload them?
Mediafire, /a/
>Do you keep track of them? If so, how?
A blog, linked to Mangaupdates
>Were they popular? Are they still popular? Do you care?
At the time, Ika Musume was popular because of the anime
>Have they disappeared offline?
No.
>Do you have any unreleased items still? If so why don't you release them?
Incomplete unreleased items. Some of them have been made obsolete by faster translators so I don't post them.

>>110155852
I am glad you feel that way, I will upload another one once I finish up work for the day.

There was an entire nekomimichan and a separate (sevenchan)/n/ekomimi board at one stage...there IS a Reddit clone of it but not interested in leaping into that
>>
> How is your Japanese? How close or literal a translation do you do (direct use of honorifics and idioms)?
Shit. Prefer adaptation but keep some non-bloat honorifics.
> Are you part of a translation group? Did you do more than just translation?
It's a pain but end up doing everything. Hate scanning so trying to avoid that as much as possible.
> Where did you upload them?
4chan, batoto, dynasty, mega
> Do you keep track of them? If so, how?
HDD
> Were they popular? Are they still popular? Do you care?
No, no, no
> Have they disappeared offline?
No sales, so not yet

Because I'm a lazy faggot who needs to keep his promise and finish the last part already. I will, I'll work on it this weekend for sure.
>>
>>110158366
You should post on one page threads sometime, those kind of shenanigans would be a great change of pace from the usual recommendation shit.

Why dont you upload it to batoto or somewhere?

I will do so I guess since it seems to be the place for non-pornographic translations.

For the other kind I guess sadpanda or similar...might not want my day-to-day email address for that though.

On a side not it looks like the de-censored and translated copy of "Cheer Up! My Bro" could not be saved from this laptop...
>>
>>110159548
FUCK
>>
>>110159579
Seems like someone Chinese guuy kept a torrent of it up and someone else uploaded it to http://g.e-hentai.org/g/372916/3b2d701c14/
Enjoy, and please excuse the derpy "Oniichan's thing..." translation orz
>>
>>110158431
Damn, you're really letting yourself go, huh

You only planning to translate catgirl related stuff?
>>
>>110159858
But "Oniichan's thing" is acceptable.
>>
>>110159579
Nice pun.

>>110159548
Careful with hentai, people might use report button, I like you I don't want you to get banned

Also, consider making a trip bro, I'd like to keep in contact with you
>>
>>110160004
As I said, most of my translations were done for niche cat-ear and [spolier]kemono[/spoiler] fora & sites. In saying that I have plenty of other interest areas and non-adult stuff to translate when I have the time.
>>110160081
Thanks for the advice, meant to post a less nasty page! Hopefully if it is reported they'll let it slide in the interests of ensuring some new stuff for all of /a/.

I'd rather not be a tripfag...I like anonymity. Just using a name on this thread to make it less confusing

>>110160029
I'm glad you find it so =_=;)
>>
>>110160264
>=_=;)
But this is not acceptable.
>>
More than I can remember or count.

>How is your Japanese?
Fluent but non-native. It wasn't when I started though, I was near-fluent when I stopped studying years and years ago, and only picked it back up again a little while back.
>How close or literal a translation do you do (direct use of honorifics and idioms)?
It depends on the work. I'm extremely liberal when I can be though.
>Are you part of a translation group? Did you do more than just translation?
No, but I've worked with other people from time to time when they needed some help, when their regular guy was busy, or whatever.
>Where did you upload them?
Nyaa for torrents, /a/ for manga dumps, mediafire, etc...
>Do you keep track of them? If so, how?
Nope.
>Were they popular? Are they still popular? Do you care?
A couple are. No, I don't care, I translate because I like translating.
>Have they disappeared offline?
I think a few things may not be seeded anymore and I haven't kept them.
>Do you have any unreleased items still? If so why don't you release them?
My hard drive is full of half-completed projects of various types. They aren't released because, obviously, they aren't completed.
>>

>My hard drive is full of half-completed projects of various types. They aren't released because, obviously, they aren't completed.
Fuck, same shit here.

I've translated a couple doujiins and am about to translate an online manga once I get bored enough.

My Japanese is fairly poor at the moment. I prefer my translations to be as literal as I need them to be to flow nicely in English. I keep honorifics and depending on whether the idiom had an actual translation (like ????) or not would depend on how I translated it.
>Are you part of a translation group? Did you do more than just translation?
No. I've done the entire scanlations parts except the actual scanning. My cleaning is shit but presentable, I've managed to redraw a couple things, and I think my typesetting is fine.
>What were they?
Lewd.
Ex
Not really.
At the time they were.
Nope.
Not at the moment, once I start this online manga that might change.

Scanlator groups are absolute cancer. But a necessary cancer to get our longer manga. I would avoid them unless you wanted to see a long manga you enjoy thrive.
>>
>>110160820
>am about to translate an online manga once I get bored enough.
Is it Kuso Manga Bukuro?
>>
>>110160924
Get out of my head.
>>
>>110160924
>Kuso Manga Bukuro
Absolutely delighting
>>
>>110160924
>>110161090
But seriously some of the chapters are four whole pages, the manga has virtually no text except about two text heavy chapters.

Why is it not translated already?
>>
>>110161157
Some things just aren't, be it due to lack of exposure or sometimes it just doesn't happen. There are some series that have been massively popular and no one stepped up to do them when they were dropped. Scanlation is quite fickle, in that sense. It's great that someone's expressed interest, though.
