Man, joining a scanlation group must really cause bad luck to come pouring down!

Or they just can't come forward and say "I don't feel like it", which is where the truth is.

Begging for money
Nothing wrong with that so long is it's for raws

strangest thing I've ever had working in a scanlation group was some guy offer the group $5k to translate 300 chapters of some Chinese manga in 3 weeks. Politely told him it wasn't possible given the size of our group and he donated $500 for raws.
I still don't understand how people like this exist, but props I guess

Xavier Hughes
Xavier Hughes

is that really an investment?
It is if they pass on your genes. And if you aren't retarded then it's not exactly difficult to stop your kid from turning into a peice of shit.

We humans take care of our tribe until it gets so bad that we can't take care of them anymore. That's one of the big strong points of our species that have allowed us to move to the top of the food chain.
The big strong point of that is that the elders take care of the youngers. If the elder's aren't helping the youngers (as in the sick mother scenario that started this whole thing) then they're just a detriment to everyone. The children, on the other hand, carry the speicies forward whether they help the elders or not.

No, it's really just her injecting politics into a translation where there's no reason for it.

https://desustorage.org/a/thread/141347860/#141353247
Okay, so let me get this straight. Telling an adult woman that they are being a child for wanting to be an idol isn't "mansplaining"?
I'll just assume that's just a trigger word that sets off anons for some reason.

There were several good replies for why this use of the word is retarded, e.g.

https://desustorage.org/a/thread/141347860/#141356527
Telling any adult humans a child for wanting to be something regarded as childish, is just a simple condescending insult. Not inherently sexist one way or another.
Mansplaining is a non word used by paranoid SJW who thinks the patriarchy are everywhere, and wanted a word to make people see that a man being condescending towards a woman is worse than a woman being condescending towards a man.

https://desustorage.org/a/thread/141347860/#141360855
Even when used in that way it carries heavy connections to gender and gender politics, which is why both their example and your own initial defense of your translation in >>141353247 made specific mention of women.

Shit I'm pretty fluent in moon and I don't think I'd do 300 chapters in 3 weeks for only 5k. That's pretty much a professional translation project and something that time-consuming on such a short time limit would probably be a bit more. 10-12 chapters a day is nothing to sneeze at.

Considering that quite a considerable number of scanlators are SEA fags, that's quite a fortune in their local currency, so I wouldn't be surprised if some group did take the offer. Mind you, the TL quality is probably shit but that's another issue.

Depends on the Tl and the mass of text. A beginner could need around 4 hours for a single texty chapter. Someone who did it for quite sometime will reduce that to around 30 minutes if he wants to do a really good job.

It is if you're fluent in both languages. Of course it takes longer to translate still if you want to make it sound good.

Alexander Gonzalez

This. When you read a manga and translate it into English in your head, forcing yourself to write down everything right away often ends up producing a glorified equivalent of a machine translation.

You need to understand and revise the words in your head to not only deliver the meaning you have read but to do so in a grammatical way that does not sound like a stilted pseudo-machine translation.

Angel Watson
Angel Watson

Depends, text heavy or information that's outside of my specialty like technical terms I don't know could take 2-3hrs for around 35 pages.

A conversation heavy or simple comedy manga would be like 30 minutes. Proofing and editing take longer. When I post quick TLs in Tomo threads or something those normally take like 4 minutes to type and make sure they're error free.
