Translation feedback post!

No flaming allowed, but constructive criticism is more than welcome! As a quick note: I would appreciate it if you gave feedback after reading my recent translations, as my translation methods have changed since my earlier works. The list of translations I've worked on can be found here. If, however, you still feel that I haven't made any improvement at all, then do let me know. Politely!

Comments are screened, anon commenting is on, IP logging is off.

Things you can feedback on:

-Translation accuracy: does the target language (English) largely match with the source language (Japanese)? have the nuances of the source language been sufficiently captured?

-Use of English: are translations accurate apart from occasional slips of grammar? do sentences have near perfect flow? do sentences sound nearly as normal as they would if spoken by a native speaker?

-Efficiency: are translations completed quickly?

-Interaction: not quite a translation issue, but an issue for fandom translators nonetheless. have I been polite in dealing with people? have I made an effort to respond to questions/comments?


Request post



ETA: Apologies to all for such a long wait, but I'm going to close this request post again. School is getting really busy, and I'm frankly quite distracted with other things as well. I will still try a hand at finishing the requests I have at hand, but I can't make any promises. Again, I'm very sorry. m(_ _)m

Requests for Japanese-English translations go here! Before making any requests, always check this post and the translation list to see if it has already been translated.


Requests will be on hold until all 5x10 projects have been completed. Sorry, everyone, and thank you so much for your infinite patience! m(_ _)m





List of translations

These are all complete translations, if not completed parts of an article or video clip. I'm afraid I won't upload videos or images to accompany the script, so please don't request for them.

[Title] Assorted drabbles: Ordinary, Life of a Salmon, Till Death Do Us Part
[Rating] PG-13 for some swearing
[Disclaimer] I don't own the movie "Secretly, Greatly" or any its characters.
[Pairings] Ryu-hwan/Hae-jin
[Summary] "All salmons return home to die." Bits and pieces of the men's secret lives in the South, ranging from light-hearted to tragic and full-on spoilery.
[Notes] Highly, highly recommend this movie to any who have access to it in theaters. I might do more crack drabbles of the three spies, because I love the three of them together, and dammit, they deserve happiness and so much more. I'll separate each drabble with a cut and leave the most spoiler-filled one for last. Please heed the warnings if you don't want to be spoiled! Other than that, I hope you enjoy. ♥

Ordinary: as the title suggests, a day in the life of. No spoilers.Collapse )

Life of a Salmon: Hae-rang POV, introspective piece. Light spoilers.Collapse )

Till Death Do Us Part: Hae-jin POV, introspective piece. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.Collapse )

[One Day] My Neighbours 2PM

[Title] My Neighbours 2PM
[Rating] PG-13 for some swearing
[Disclaimer] I don't own any of the One Day boys.
[Pairings] Channuneo, Khunyoung, Jinwoon/Kwon
[Summary] Three times 2AM thinks their neighbours are crazy and one time they (sorta) don't.
[Notes] Too much Avengers = short & silly One Day superhero AU. Have fun guessing the boys' abilities/superpowers! Some are really obvious; others, not so much. Guess four out of six, and you might be rewarded with a quick drabble of your favourite 2PM superhero. ^^ Hope you like it. ♥

Nichkhun's always covered from head to toe, even on the hottest days. Kwon thinks it's a waste; skin so fair shouldn't be concealed.Collapse )
[Title] Seoul Academy: The Ramblings of a Journalist II
[Rating] PG-13
[Disclaimer] I don't own any of the One Day boys.
[Pairings] Channuneo, Khunyoung, Jinwoon/Kwon, (Big Bang) GD/Seungri
[Notes] A Daily Seoul write-up on the New Years celebration in Seoul Academy; appearances of Big Bang members GD and Seungri included. Happy New Year, everyone!

2012 opens with a big bang as various student groups come together to create exciting collaborations on the main stage.Collapse )
[Title] Seoul Academy: The Ramblings of a Journalist I
[Rating] PG-13
[Disclaimer] I don't own any of the One Day boys.
[Pairings] Channuneo, Khunyoung
[Notes] Wooyoung sees a therapist, featuring all the One Day boys and Big Bang's TOP. It's been ages since I've written this verse, ahaha. Enjoy? ♥

Hwang Chansung, star and hope of the football team, was seeing a shrink.Collapse )

[2PM] Just Lee Junho

[Title] Just Lee Junho
[Rating] PG-13
[Disclaimer] I don't own any of the 2PM boys.
[Pairings] Gen, Chanho if you squint
[Summary] Junho has a bad case of identity crisis.
[Notes] Pretty much an excuse for me to write Junho meta in fic form. I would love to hear your interpretations of this fascinating boy, especially if it's completely different from mine. Enjoy. ♥

The more Junho mulled over this problem, the more he withdrew; the more he withdrew, the more the problem exacerbated.Collapse )

[2PM] Animal

[Title] Animal
[Rating] NC-17
[Disclaimer] I don't own any of the 2PM boys.
[Pairings] Channuneo
[Summary] Chansung's an animal and it drives Junho crazy in more ways than one.
[Notes] Inspired by Junho and Chansung's "Back2U" fancams, which you can watch here and here. (No seriously, WATCH THEM.) In other news, I suck at titles and summaries lol. That said, enjoy. ♥

After the next rehearsal, it was Junho who snuck into Chansung's shower stall.Collapse )
