This was given a poor translation on 4Chan about two months back. I'm looking to get a good translation. I already have experience in editing/typesetting.

One work I've already done:

Also the scan actually made is a bit poor. The images I'm posting were cleaned up a bit in Photoshop. There's a higher-quality version available in the remote chance anyone would like to get it: http://www.dmm.co.jp/dc/book/-/detail/=/cid=b159baklo00582/

If this isn't the place for this request, though, I'd welcome someplace else.

Here's the poor translation: http://exhentai.org/g/592777/dfeb5ea535/

I think anyone who knows Japanese can tell quite a bit of it is off, plus the way a lot of it is worded makes it come across as a rewrite.

>> No.3414  

is it even possible for a gajin to buy from a Japanese website??

>> No.3417  

>>3414
Yes.

However I got in contact with one person who says that Comic LO scans are DRM-protected and that "a digital rip can't compete the quality to a decent scan anyways."

So basically all that's needed now is someone willing to translate.

>> No.3418  

>>3414
There's people that rip DRMed files, I'm unsure how but it should be possible. Looking at the preview though, the files look clean but very filtered unfortunately

>> No.3419

Removing the DRM is not a problem. However the limited quality usually is. Manga that's ripped from Amazon Kindle have resolutions as low as 722x1024.

Well, I'm learning Japanese and wanted a challenge. I took a crack at it. I have no prior experience. There's a couple of glaring holes, I don't know how people format things and I can't write sexy, but it is at least an honest attempt at translation. Read it and... weep?

This is the old translator's notes (before the typesetter for that one added in random cursing and stuff): http://nsfw.foolz.us/u/thread/1352760/

I think comparing both can allow one to get a good grip on the translation, although it'd be nice for a third person to go through the one you just made and give more accurate translations, since I know "the 26th page of this girl's world" is wrong (26p = 26 pages, refers to length of this.)

Use a different font for your thought and narration bubbles. Something thinner or with lowercase letters.

Keep the font size the same throughout the whole one-shot, and the font is to large. You can afford to make it a few points smaller.

>> No.3593  

>>3591
Any specific font suggestions?

It does seem the text is too big on some bubbles/boxes.

>> No.3594  

>>3593
Standard ones are Chinacat for narration and Mighty Zeo for though.

Just make sure the font size is consistent. If you do use these fonts you can make them roughly the same size as Wild Words by setting their size one point higher.

And you only change the font size when the raw does also.

>> No.3595  

anon should keep fonts as is imo italics do the job for thoughts or narration

but decrease the font size on some of them

>> No.3596  

>>3595

No. One of the most basic things in editing is to use different fonts for your thought and narration.

Just read the Yuri Project editing guild.

>> No.3598  

>>3596
Maybe you could give OP fonts that don't have upper/lowercase? It looks weird to me having a font with upper/lowercase letters next to one where all the letters are equally sized, altho I'm not a fan of Wild Words to begin with

I use augie for sounds, actions and signs, and HL Fantasy1 for screaming/moaning/all that. I'll use Chinacat and Mighty Zeo for narration and thought though.

How's this? I resized some of the wild word text too.

>> No.3601  

>>3599
It's still pretty big. With a 300 resolution Wild Words set 4 will work. If the raws aren't already in 300 resolution you can make a action for it to do it in bulk. Just make sure not to re sample the images, so the physical size does not change.

Well just doing it on a single page I don't notice any difference...

>> No.3606  

>>3605
A 300 resolution is not going to change anything about the image, that's just what most scans use. It's only going to let you have normalized font size. So instead of having wild words set to 20-30 or whatever you have it at, you can set it to 3-4.

I recommend you just read this over.

>> No.3609

there's pretty much no text that's right at the very edge of the bubbles, anything that looks big to the reader (down to just me I guess) is probably due to the inevitable awkwardness of putting English in a bubble designed for Japanese

there's a point where "too big" and "too small" becomes subjective judgement, you know
