    The "ShgnLW" thread

    Well, due to the fact that I'm an international translator a moderator *cough* Khaludz *cough* xD suggested that I made a thread in this section.

    Well, let me introduce myself: My name is ShgnLW, real name is Marc. I'm 18 years old, living in that tiny frogland called the Netherlands (AKA Holland). I'm translating the naruto chapters in Dutch every week for the ones interested in it. And I must say there are quiet a lot actually. If you want to see the latest translation (MQ) go to http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index....15854#msg15854 to check it out

    Hoe is het met jou, Marc? ;D

    What's your favorite Dutch word?

    Mine has to be 'ongelofelijk' so far - just find it appealing for some reason. (Amazing) The way I remember it is a memory tip - 'angel of elijah' because that seems to me as something that would be miraculous. So in my head when I want to say that's amazing! in Dutch, I think of an angel of Elijah and then come up with 'ongelofelijk.' Oh well, that's how I go about memorizing most things. I just wish it was as easy in memorizing hiragana and kanji...

    Anyway, good job keeping up with the Dutch translations along with Khal.

    Oh, and how did you get into Naruto? How popular is manga in the Netherlands do you think?

    Hehe, here's a question for you , why do you write my name as Khaludz? Nickname or continuing error?

    Why do you beat me to a dutch translation on thursdays?! Think that's funny?!

    Hello Marc!
    Bedank for het goede werk! (I'm not sure if this is correct...)
    Goed gedaan!

    I really enjoy reading Dutch version although I can't speak Dutch...but due to the fact that I'm German I'm mostly getting the grip of it. I'm trying to learn some basic Dutch by reading your translations.

    My questions:
    So, what do you like about Naruto? Which is your favourite Naruto character? Why did you begin to translate?

    Re: The "ShgnLW" thread

    Hey everybody, totally forgot this thread as I am busy with school

    Well, my favorite word in dutch is "Schitterend' what I say all the time if something really funny happens. It means "Fantastic" or 'wonderful".

    I got into Naruto after a former classm8 of mine (nicknamed The _Oracle, he's pretty famous around the anime community) who is really into anime. So, I started reading the manga and I liked it!! I began to translate because my little cousin once wanted me to read the manga I was reading on the pc, but he is just a little kid who can't read or understand english so I translated it for him

    Manga here in the Netherlands is not really popular. Alternative people and people with a high education often read it mainly, though also other people read it. Mostly girls think it is for geeks and shit like that. I only read Naruto and in the past I read Kenshin what I really liked. Other manga however I dislike.

    My favo character would be ehm... Neji I think Or Kakashi The gentle fiststyle Hakke is my favorite style and attack of the series

    @ Khaludhz ehm, Khaludh, it was just a continuing error however, a classmate of mine's name is Khalid and his nickname is Khaludz, so I think that is the problem

    Re: The "ShgnLW" thread

    Aha, so that's why you thought me to be 'black' Well, indeed many people here think manga is for the geeks, and i have no right to counter that, as i'm kinda geeky myself , but lately ( the last half year ) watching anime on your pc has become far more popular, and especially Bleach is really getting 'in' at the moment... or at least around The Hague, Delft etc...

    Where do you live?
    Have you been to other countries and what do you think of them compared to holland?
    Who's translations do you prefer to use when you translate them into dutch? And why?
    School? As you are eighteen years, are you currently doing vwo6? or do you study you at a university already?

    Non-important thingies: Khalid is probably pronounced as 'Ch/Galiet' or something... Khaludh is pronounced the dutch way if you want to know, so more like 'Kaa-loet' in dutch or 'Kay-lood' in english...

    Re: The "ShgnLW" thread

    I live in Almere, Flevoland, the fastest growing city in the Netherlands. Unfortunaltey, all the garbage from amsterdam (I'm refering to people) is living here... to bad

    I lived in Germany and Luxembourg, too for a couple of years, although I can't remember much from it because I was lik 1-3 years old when I lived in Luxembourg and 6-7 when in Germany (I went to a dutch school).

    All translators who are here are all fantastic people, who are willing to spend there little bit of spare time into this, I mean, there are so many people reading Naruto in this world yet there are only a handfull of serious translators. Keep it up people That's why I don't really mind which translation I "borrow" because I have faith that all are excellent.

    Hahahah, you sure have a lot of questions Khaludz (mind if I keep callin you like that?) I think that you are probably following the VWO program right? Yeah I beat VWO and started this year at the Vrije Universteit in Amsterdam, doing International Business Administration, a course completely in English. Heheheheh, pretty difficult, because I finished english with a "5/10" grade on my final list

    BTW> The pronouncement of your nickname is quiet... funny but yeah I thought at first glance that you pronounce your name like Chaliet in the beginning

    Heheheheh, now I gonna search for your personal thread and ask you some questions EDIT> Where is your thread?!
