Volume 14 Chapter 5 Done

Postby Ariana » Thu Oct 13, 2011 9:58 pm

My apologies for spamming the forum with chapter completion topics.

Chapter 5 is officially complete. Not edited, but completely translated. (Not that I will bother editing. Sorry for increasing your workload, editors.)

http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Zero_no_Tsukaima:Volume14_Chapter5

Every now and then something seems very off with the Chinese version that I'm translating. I'm translating from an online source. Simplified characters. It seems quite erroneous and inconsistent at times.

The accuracy of the first half is probably worst than the later half, since I switched to an online Chinese-English dictionary around half way, as opposed to using Google as a word/phrase dictionary.

I've got no idea about how accurate "Bass Tres" is, along with a couple of other things. A couple of notes from me are hidden inside text. "Valiag" actually sounds closer to Balliag in this chapter, but I've changed it to Valiag, since it seems to be the 'Waliag" from Chapter 3. From the context, it sounds like they are talking about the same thing.

Regardless, please enjoy!

I'll become an editor if you finish these things that quickly, and I'm only 20% done with my chapter translation. :lol:

Feel free to Spam the forum with "Chapter Completed" topics as much as you want, I love to hear them being done. [I check the wiki though, so it doesn't matter to me too much.)

Thank you for your insanely fast job, I'm sure all us ZnT fans are rejoicing.

The speed isn't insane. If it were, I would be in a asylum. XD

And you're working on a ZnT chapter, Hobogunner? Which one, may I ask?

As for editing, if you wish to, I'd very much appreciate it. Please beware of jarring translation errors, though. I'm aiming to finish a chapter this weekend, but who knows if I'll actually accomplish that. Grammar can be a bit awkward, and I don't proofread my translation work all that much, but it should be readable regardless. (Not broken English, that is.)

I'm translating Baka-test. (Though, I dunno if I'll do more than a chapter, because my translation speed is insanely slow.)

I can certainly edit it, but I can't read the native Japanese writing (without excruciating pain, and a lot of guessing :roll: ), so I can't really compare your translations with the true meaning, I can simply do the basic "This sounds like a better sentence." and misspelling. :?

If that still sounds good for you, then yeah, I can read pretty quickly and have a bunch of freetime (I don't translate much. :oops: ), it would probably only take me an hour (maybe) to edit a whole chapter.

Terminology needs to be discussed...

Ah, and Silimir (or do I need to call you by your other usename?), can I have the RAWS for the Japanese version for this chapter? I could check the kanas.

I'm afraid that I can't help you with that. I'm working on Volume 14 Chapter 4 right now, but I don't think that I'm about to request to finish off someone else's work anytime soon. My apologies for that.

On a different note, sorry for anyone expecting a chapter last weekend. I got a bit busy.

He Aria (or ari or do you want I keep it Aniana), don't have to apologize, they can w8!
If you think about continuing someone's else job, just ask which one to Kira. Except for kazesenken, who told us not to touch it, it seems the others were left for someone to continue..

I didn't exactly say that. I just won't get around to doing it until mid November. If anyone wants to finish it up before then, they are free to. Just let me know of the change.

Right now I'm looking for a way to transfer my pdf's text into word text so I may be able to use google translation them, modify them and maybe ask a friend to look at them..

Not any text in particular, but sure if I still can't find an answer on google or asking to people, I may ask for a chapter ^^
