Currently translating Ore no Shibou Flag. Will try to increase my translating speed.

Neither English nor Japanese are my main languages, so forgive me if there are some mistakes. And please point out if you find any mistakes so that the other readers find it more enjoyable. NO spoilers.

  2. Hi.

    Since Japanese and English are not your native language, how do you go about translating? English is my native language…..but machine translation is still a nightmare.

    1. I mean, I’m far, far from fluent in German (at best, I was maybe at the level of “crazy immigrant granny at the grocery store”), but with a dictionary and grammar guide or an internet connection I’m confident I could slap something coherent together.

      Machine translating can be slow, misleading and flat-out wrong, and it’s really easy to completely miss idioms, references, etc., but it helps if you use multiple machine translation engines (especially ones that primarily cater to a given country/language seem to work best, e.g. http://www.excite-webtl.jp/world/english_japanese/ for Japanese), plus tools like Jisho.org or Rikia-tan/chan/kun that’ll break a sentence down into it’s grammatical components. Of course, actual knowledge about a language is also extremely helpful in making machine translation gibberish coherent.

      2. Well the description is available in Baka updates. It’s the milf one. I really want to get at least the first chapter translated so I can gauge interest in it. However because of my poor kanji recognition I need a translator.

  3. You should create a patreon page or open paypal donations or something. I am sure there are people who would want to reward you for your work, and it might give you more motivation to translate
