He always adds a comment when he goes with less literal but more proper-English translation (thanks to that we can see nuances that would be omitted by us otherwise). He also transliterates text so anyone can easily look some Japanese word up and scanlators won't make a mistake even if they have a raw with different number of pages or screwed order of pages. What's more he corrects his translation in case there is a mistake (which rarely occurs) or wants to better explain the meaning of some sentence which all other translators I know are too lazy to do. And there are even S translators who made HUGE mistakes (like mistaking east with south) which they did not correct. All in all he's the best translator I know.
    I too nominate gernot, for the same reasons as Goral gave, being a fellow Claymore lover.

    I'll go for BomberDRufi.

    He translates Gintama. That's enough for me.
    I imagine it being a fucking horrible job.

    Re: Best Translator

    Nominating saladesu, I'm not up to date with Bakuman so I can't say for sure.
    But I can tell how much effort and passion that was put in to her Nura translations.

    BomberDrufi.. I dont know this person much but I know how hard as hell gintama can be.
    So thank you so very much.

    Re: Best Translator

    Don't follow many translators but all you're work is much appreciated! I nominate the following three:

    1. cnet128 - Awesome translator. Legend.
    2. Bomber D Rufi - Another great translator. Very hard working and friendly. Username is epic!
    3. dosukoi7 - Just like the other two. Great all round trans, very helpful and friendly too. =)

    Re: Best Translator

    saladesu for her past translations of Bakuman, NuraMago and Examurai.
    thewrong for his translations of Sket Dance. (Not a purple name, but definitely legit, since I used to work with him in Trinity Bakuma.)
    molokidan for basically all of his contributions.

    I'd like to nominate Asarii, for her reliable translations of spoilers, interviews and other goodies in DGM section.
