  1. First of all thanks for your reply, I truly appreciate it. I'm kind of sad after reading so much, but you pretty much nailed my fears regarding this kind of job. Considering that I'd liked to make a career out of it, but chances are pretty slim and the pay doesn't sound good etc, I'll try to pass on this and try something else, while trying to re-learn japanese as a hobby. Thank you so much for taking your time and explaining how the translation word works, which while a bit sad, opened my eyes a little bit.
  2. Hello there, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this kind of question, if not I apologise in advance. A bit of background about myself: I'm a guy from Italy, who a few years ago, tried to learn japanese self taught metod. I started learning hiragana and katakana from japanese-lesson(dot)com, printing both kana tables and making exercises from that site. Since then I tried to read a few visual novels and I was able to read about 40% of them, while looking at new words to read, and lazily picking up the most common Kanji I've encountered while reading. After having a f
  3. ^This. Also, it's a matter of art style too, imho (well talking only from GC era, putting aside NES/GB//GBC releases, or even SNES one unless you are into pixel graphic). Each zelda game has its own art style which is never reused and is charming on its own. Last but not least, the lore is always consistent, instead of the mind distortion AC franchise turned into. No microtransactions , loot boxes or dlc bs either (aside botw, at least though the price was fair and with a good chunk of content). My only complaint towards nintendo is extreme censorship in the west (which put me a
  4. Welcome to fuwa! I hope you'll enjoy this place!
  5. Gotcha! I... I'll don't add anything personal to this. Oh I see. Never noticed the discussion tab, kinda neat. So there were people talking about official translations in there? I'm quite surprised. Yeah I shall do too, thanks. Thanks.
  6. Never heard of him, but I stopped caring after reading that cancerous wall of text he wrote. I'm kinda surprised by him being banned on VNDB though (I use it only as personal vn database collection, meaning I have no interaction with the community), but I don't understand why starting fights... Finally another proper reply, thank you! I completely agree with what you just said. Right now I'm not translating anything which really needs honorifics in the first place (so I completely removed them), but should I start a project which heavily focuses on them I'll be definit
  7. One of the "features" which I couldn't find on the internet despite looking for it was one of my friends' discovery: Near the resistance camp at the start of the game, there are usually 3 or 4 neutral machines walking in circle. If you go with 2B after using self destruction and put her "rear" in front of their faces, they have a chance of blushing and emit smoke from their "ears" (it doesn't seems to happen often though, I'm still wondering if there is a particular trigger for it). It seems the game is full of these "features" but most of them are not documented yet.
  8. I'm really hyped for this, although I hoped to play 3 and 4 before 5 (I have some issues going backward after having tasted the new features from the newer titles). Hope the port will come smooth and without issues, I'm very tempted to buy it day one.
  9. Holy cows, it works! I can't thank you enough for helping me in this regard (it also somewhat improved my mood which was crushed earlier...)! I don't know how did you find it, but you made my day, thanks again!
  10. As for the more classic terms such as lolicon, tsundere, senpai and so on I fully agree; I'm a bit puzzled on hentai though, as "pervert" could fit more or less (it mainly depends in which situation is used and if there is a pun words wise). All in all as I thought it boils down to personal preference, which is good, to me. Thanks for the help (and sorry for the trouble)!
  11. Oh I see! Mmmh...I translated about 200 lines and the guy is still called by just his name, but thanks for the tips! Also, your post made me remember another thing I forgot to ask before: should I stick to either stick with or completely remove honorifics, when translating? As for now I think it depends on which kind of VN I'm translating, but I'm kinda dubious about readers' judgment: should i keep them for a more otaku appeal or, should I remove them in order to (hopefully) cater a bit of the casual audience along too?
  12. Hello, I would like to ask something related to names and chōonpu: When translating names and words into english, should i keep the long vowels? Example are: 恭介 Kyousuke/Kyosuke? 良助 Ryousuke/Ryosuke? 幸助 Kousuke/Kosuke? At first I chose to keep the long vowel sound, but after making read a partial translation to a friend, he asked me if it was right to keep it, making then question myself which is the better solution. Thanks to anyone willing to help me!
  13. My bad, I worded it wrongly. What i meant is that other than feeling extremely tired (which is a trait pretty common with depression), you feel all those negative emotions on top, pretty much like the icing on the cake (too bad it's not as tasty). Exactly :/ I kept myself telling that all the times, but ultimately I still feel that sensation of emptiness when you are unable to express or at least share in part some of your enjoyment in what you do, which too could be one of the reasons for which i started to lose interest in my own hobbies.
  14. I'll be honest and say that after what I experienced during all these years, it's only natural for me to seek a more secluded life. Nonetheless a bith of company is always welcome, as long said company respects you for what you are. Wish you a happy life, no matter the direction you'll take.
