Re: eBook readers

No way! Tablet PC price is absurd and, once again, we aren't able to read anything outdoors. What kind did you try? That's why you use things like anti-glare screens on top of your display or perhaps something lower tech that just folds out to block the sun. I would also check based on the type of ...

Re: eBook readers

I wish I had spotted this thread before! I am going to buy something soon, too. There is a perfect solution: Tablet PCs. Not only do Tablet PCs have a touch screen that you can write on (with a fake pen) and take advantage of other special touch screen software, but they are the perfect shape for re...

Re: Phase 82-87 RELEASED!!

Wow, I wasn't expecting these phases so quickly, thanks for the "donation" guys! :) Now I wish you had ended on phase 88 so I knew what happened to Z---- (forgot her name).

These guys should help the translation team on a regular basis!

Re: GUNNM Causes deaths? LOL

Worst part of the article is at the end where the PR pushovers at Tong Li publishing, the Taiwanese distributor for Gunnm in that region, says they will have their editors fine comb the manga to make sure such instructions don't actually exist. Pathetic. I don't think that's pathetic at all; it's R...

Re: GLO 83

The translation is 98% full. The tittle of the phase 083 is: "reasons to fight" Cool, I can't wait. I love that we finally got the extra glo pages, too, because I had wondered what the V-virus information said. This is totally offtopic, but I was just reading an interesting essay on how language sh...

Re: Phase 82 translation script

Currently, we have no jap--> eng translator so we have to hope for a jap--> span translation to retranslate it into english. The core "team" for the scanlation here consists of a Chilean, a Brazilian, a Swede and a German and we have one thing in common, no one is a pro in english. But as no willin...

Re: Phase 82 translation script

Thank you for everyone's hard work on translation this series, I know it has taken a lot of your free time! I know it's a bit late for this Sergio, but I thought that I'd point out what I thought was the most confusing about this phase. The end monologue by Taraba is hard to understand. Taraba: …a p...

Re: alita and her romantic//mentality

Sergio, it does sound like you're being defensive. It wasn't a debate, just an observation, thus he had no intent on going back through translations to find errors. I don't know who is reponsible for writing the translations, but grammar errors are pretty common and in particular, Phase 82 (which I ...
