So, are you translating directly from Japanese, or from English translations?
Well im translating from the raws, but i havent put the Japanes in my past Translations, but thats gonna chage casue the next Translations should have the Japanese or i'll attach the raws.
FYI I'm learning Japanes in school.
What do you do when there's a spot you have trouble understanding? Do you have someone who checks your translations for accuracy?
Yea when i got a problem i ask my friends at the Anime Club that are native Japanese.
but im also adding the japanese so some of you guys can proof-read it again.
You're lucky to have a local resource. I have to depend on email for my translation checks.
What level Japanese course are you taking? Were you able to place out of the 100 level courses?
Nah this is my first year taking Japanese so its 101.
You're in JPN101, yet you're translating manga? Are you sure you belong in that class? I certainly wasn't able to read the manga I bought out in town when I was taking 101 and 102; in fact, I was lucky to laboriously work my way through おおきなかぶ during my tour in Japan.
Well i do have some backgound in Japanese. They just didnt let me sign up to a harder class since im only a Freshman, they said that any harder class would be too much of a challange.
So what is your background in Japanese? (You mentioned watching anime and reading manga, but if they were in English, it hardly counts.)
is ya goal to blow up all penguins or will ya spare some for snacks?
