    Re: Problems with translating

    I think you are talking about typesetting/redrawing, rather than translating

    Well, as you can see from my user group, I'm not a scanlator (I clicked because the topic said "translating" ) so I can't offer any first hand tips but I think these tutorials look like excellent guides: part 1 part 2

    Like I said, I'm not a scanlator, but from what I can see (I'm proficient with photoshop) and as the tutorials confirm, it'll involve a lot of use of the pen tool and clone stamp and of course, a lot of experience Experiment around and I'm sure you'll improve by leaps and bounds in no time

    What I would recommend is to just typeset over it, then put the stroke on it to white and make sure it covers all the English text up.
