Translation from a German article with an Interview with Dennis Schröder:

"Nearly the whole team is vaccinated - only LeBron and I are not, I think."

"I can’t go into quarantine again, if that happens now, I‘ll miss a whole round in the playoffs. I can’t live with that"

Interesting that LeBron isn’t vaccinated, although that’s obviously his decision.

Schröder also said a reason to get vaccinated is that he wouldn’t miss another 14 days of basketball because of the health and safety protocol. Well he should’ve done it then.

Why translation notes in anime subtitles have all but disappeared

Browse through anime translations in the 2000s and you're likely to find a fair number of TL notes. They were such a staple of fansubs back then that hardly anyone questioned their existence. But nowadays, translation notes are rare, at least from what I've seen from professional and fan translations in the last five years. The last TL note I remember reading was from Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo episode 1, where Sentai/HIDIVE's translator basically had to use a note to explain a sexual reference that tied the whole scene together.

But at some point, translation notes became frowned upon in general. In the fansubbing community, there's been a healthy amount of discourse as to when TL notes are appropriate, if ever. I'm not privy to similar conversations among official translators, but fansubbers often make their way into the official sphere, and the viewpoints shaped by the fansubbing community often come with them.

Let's talk about the death of TL notes and what exactly might have sent them to their grave over the last couple of decades.

#Translators got better

NOTE: KEIKAKU MEANS PLAN. As far as I know, this TL note was fabricated, and there is no actual translation of Death Note that includes it. But someone made up that image to poke fun at what TL notes were actually like at the time. Translators in the 2000s were just not very good compared to their average skill level nowadays. You'd get lines like "I'm home, Okaa-sama!" and a TL note saying "Okaa-sama is a rather formal way to address one's mother." Hmm, if only there were an English term of address for one's mother that was on the stiff/formal side of things. Wait, isn't that just "Mother"?

Basically, translators didn't always have a good sense of how to use English to convey certain tones or ideas, and they used TL notes as a crutch to get the job done. Another example: a character uses "Ore-sama" and there's a TL note explaining that the use of "Ore-sama" indicates that the character is arrogant. Instead of being lazy and using a TL note, a skilled writer can just use arrogant language when writing dialogue for the character.

#The translation meta changed

Along with translators getting better, the dominant translation philosophy shifted to "we gotta translate absolutely everything!!!" somewhere along the way. In short, no one writes "nakama" in scripts anymore.

As an more elaborate example, the question of the best

There is a major translation error in the Greek version of League and Riot won't fix it

Hello there,

recently, I noticed that there is a major translation error in the Greek version of League. Now, I know that most of you probably don't care as this is a very niche issue due to the language, however I feel it is the only way to raise awareness on the matter.

During the last days of patch 11.8, I sent a ticket to my local department of Riot Support so that I could notify them about the issue. Now, two patches later, the issue still hasn't been fixed, which is kind of disappointing considering it is just a single string, albeit one with great importance to the game.

So, what is this translation error?

As you may know, Riot recently revamped the in-game tooltips for abilities to make them look the same in terms of how stats etc. are displayed. When applying this change to the greek version of League, the translation team also had to translate the word "ασπίδα" (shield). And for some reason, they opted for the word "θωράκιση", which does not mean shield, but armor, and it is also the word used for the in-game stat called armor too! As such, now two very different things have the same translation, and this is really problematic, especially for new players. For example, Riven's E now reads "Riven dashes forward and gains [X] armor" instead of "gets a shield that absorbs [X] damage", which is incorrect. Nunu's Ult also mentions him getting "armor" instead of a "shield", which was not the case before the tooltip revamp. This can lead to confusion and needs to be fixed.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I got my coworkers to tell on themselves; a translation of the male mind

I started a new job, I'm the only woman. I work closely with my coworkers, who are men. During this time we've created a safe and productive place for discussion, education, and understanding.

These are their stories;

> If he's vague and "doesn't want a title" it's because he wants to sleep with other women, but he won't be blunt because he still wants your time and to sleep with you; When I asked my coworkers why they aren't blunt with a woman they said "because then I can't F*** her anymore." He will tell you what you want to hear, but won't actually tell you.

> Scrotes feel entitled to a polygamous lifestyle; Not kidding, they feel it is a man's culture and how nature intended. Trust your gut, he's fine with lying to you, sleeping around, or even sleeping with your friends.

> He is looking at the girl who just walked by, and sexually too; "my head whips up and looks before I know it." - male coworker 2021

> He might actually not like you after sex; Coworkers confirmed that "post-nut clarity" exists, and its common.

> Scrotes don't love you if the majority of the time all you do is engage in sex; It was expressed to me that if a guy finds out he's not getting sex and that's all he wants, he will bail.

> They don't see us as women, but fleshbags; Through our discussions the wording that was used to describe women they did not have intimate/romantic feelings for were terms like "some hoe" and those similar.

> Scrotes feel entitled to a woman's emotional labor. Yes, they want you to be their mommy; My coworkers said they look for someone like their mother in a romantic partner, and that they feel they can only be emotional with a woman similar to this. They feel it's a woman's job to listen to their problems and be a therapist. (It's not. It's their own responsibility to deal with their baggage. It's their own responsibility to figure out life)

> A woman's emotions during sex and dates is different than what a man feels; My coworkers described women as being susceptible to vibrations and energy where they described themselves as generally not feeling much in the mind. (Oh, and they know how we feel, they just don't care.)

> If he only texts you at night/evening, he only wants to get laid; Need I say more? Coworkers said it's the only reason they're hitting up women at this time is to try and get laid.

> Scrotes blame women for their problems and behavior(Yes, they want to be the victim so bad)

Translation of bits of Xzi's companion stream

Just bits I thought were worth translating. This was going to be a fun post but Xzi looked kinda depressed at the end of the stream

(Hanbin's play on Lijiang second round) Nice Hanbin. This guy's literally a Sigma onetrick. He really does fuck on sigma. Fucking Sigma onetrick. Since when he was on Paris he was a fucking Sigma onetrick. No, it's a compliment, he really does fuck on Sigma at least.

King's row? That's my map. King's row is my map...fuck.

You know, Soldier's not a bad hero. People really misunderstand him as a trash hero, but ranked and competitive play is different. (chat: Soldier's never had a good showing in competitive play) What? Did you see my Soldier during Paris v Fusion? Did you not see my clips? Huh, I guess you didn't, because if you did you wouldn't be saying Soldier is trash. (chat: They could literally play that clip at your funeral) Playing game play clips in a funeral, wouldn't that be shitty though lol

(Doha's kill on Mercy for King's row Shanghai attack final fight) Doha, that kill on Mercy was nice. I guess you saw my Hanzo clips. You're doing well as I taught you, you cute little shit. You've seen my replays, that's how you grow.

(Casters complimenting Fearless's shatter) Hey, I could do that too, though, you know, against an Orisa. Just sayin. Just kidding, Euiseok's Rein is really good. (Chat: at least you're not claiming you taught him Rein) His Rein? no, I never taught him Rein. Not Rein, but Winston though, he said he wanted to be good on winston, and he kept asking me to teach him, so I taught him a few things. He's doing well, as I taught him. Our team does just as they're taught.

(After Sp9rk1e's death blossom) Younghan, I see you've watched my reaper plays during my EM days on King's row, when I 1v6ed on reaper. That's how you play reaper. (Chat: you should've taught him McCree...) I taught him but it didn't work. Doha tried to pick up McCree you know, just before I retired. And McCree needs aim, you know, but Doha... (laughs) it didn't work. I taught him (laughs) Doha, your tracking is so good, why can't you aim on McCree or Widow? Your Sombra aim is....(Doha missing) not good. Yeah, you saw his duplicate, his McCree is bad.

(sp9rk1e on soldier for king's row final checkpoint) Younghan, you lil shit, you're having fun on soldier. This lil shit keeps going back to soldier. Is it fun to play something else for a change? I guess I would have fun too if I played Genji in competitive play. I guess that's what

Translation of Shanghai Dragon's team manager/staff's post on Weibo condemning a Korean player

This is a copy paste and my translation of what he wrote on Weibo. Chinese is my second language, so do correct me if I translated anything wrongly.

既然Luke有聊到这个事,我也来简单说说我对这件事的看法,以及我所做的力所能及的措施—

Translation: Since Luke has talked about this, let me simply state my stance and what I did (the measures I took) on the issue at hand.

今年是第四个赛季,队伍前2个赛季是在洛杉矶度过的,后因为疫情原因又在韩国集训了一年。在这些时间里,我们得到了非常多的国外的粉丝、员工、朋友甚至是一些路人的帮助和支持;在我遇到的国外朋友里面,他们几乎都是友善而亲切的,充满着对中国的好奇和尊重;也多亏他们的帮助,我们从18、19年相对灰暗的时光中慢慢觉醒,越变越好,这一切让我觉得非常美好。
Translation: This year is the fourth season. The team spent the first two seasons in Los Angeles and then trained in South Korea for another year due to the pandemic. During these hours, we have received a lot of help and support from foreign (korean) fans, employees, friends and even some passers-by; among the foreign (korean) friends I met, they are almost all friendly and kind, full of curiosity and respect for China. Thanks to their help, we slowly awakened from the relatively gloomy days of 2018 and 2019, and we are getting better and better. All these are wonderful things to me.

当然,也不排除某种人的存在。当第一次看到某选手的错误言论时,我是非常震惊和愤怒的,这样罔顾事实和国际共识的发言,透露着无知和冒犯。作为一名在中国备受优待与喜爱的公众人物,应该明白自己的公众立场,承担自己的社会责任,以竞技为主,专注比赛,而不是肆意发布错误、挑战其他国家主权统一的恶劣言论。
Translation: When I first saw this player's wrong remarks, I was shocked and angry. Such remarks are made in disregard of facts and international consensus and reveals this player's ignorance and violation/wrongdoing/violation of what is correct. As a well-treated and loved public figure in China, he should understand his public position, assume his own social responsibilities, focus on competition and focus on competitions, instead of arbitrarily making mistakes and challenging the sovereignty and unity of other countries.

从看到这些言论的第一刻起,我们就达成一致,全面抵制这名选手参与的任何形式的活动(包含训练赛[不允许进房间],参加商业活动,接受媒体采访等等)
Translation: From the first moment we saw these remarks, we reached an agreement to fully boycott any form of activities that this player participated in (including training games [no room allowed], participating in commercial activities, accepting media interviews, etc.)

然后,也第一时间召集开了内部会议,并基于以下两点与所有的选手和教练及工作人员达成共识,他们也非常的认同:
Translation: We also immediately convened an internal meeting and reached a consensus with all the players, coaches and staff based on the following two points:

1.中国的主权和领土完整不容分割,这是我们进行一切活动和合作的最基本底线,任何成员都必须认知和认同这一点;

No, the Official Translation does not fix 139's Problems.

Warning : This might be a bit offensive and triggering. If you can't handle this stuff, stop reading here.

This post is partly made in response to this Post, but is in no way an attack to the OP. However, it echoes a sentiment that i have seen become really commonplace in this Sub, and a few others, that the Official Translation somehow "fixes" the incoherent mess that Ch.139 was, and that the reason a lot of people disliked it was because they read the Non-Official Translated Version.

This is bull, and you can buzz right off. Not only does it insult our intelligence ( "They didn't understand it" ) , it is also pretty hilarious to me. You'll see people do all sort of mental gymnastics to justify the atrocity that 139 was, but the funniest thing is how they'll leave out crucial context in order to make it seem like they have an actual point all the while they do nothing but splitting hairs.

Let's get to it then.

There is a menial amount of difference in these two pages, and quite frankly nothing changes wether you read one or the other.

"But the one says that he chose to move forward, while the other says he followed a path". Yes, but he chose to follow that Path, didn't he ? Nothing we didn't know already.

Again, literally nothing changes. The fact that people think it's better because he starts everything with *I* makes it better because he is making clear that he is responsible, that it's his choice. However this is based on the fallacious presupposition that we weren't already aware of that. Obviously he was the one who chose and did it. +

I'm a native Japanese college student who's offering translations

I saw the post about being denied translation by the police. I talked with my non-Japanese friends and found out they were ethnically profiled more times than they'd let on. I'm sorry this has happened to you when it shouldn't and I want to do my part in making it easier, and while I can't help with police reform, I thought of something.

I want to help by offering translation services for free. I'm thinking about making a list of things to say when you're harassed. (I hate to ask but I'd appreciate it if you sent me phrases you wish you'd known when you were harassed, or what to do when you are.) It doesn't have to be about police-related stuff, if you're in any kind of situation where a translator is unavailable you can ask for a verbal translation. Please note that I'm a student and am not available 24/7 and that my English is nowhere near perfect (C2).

We can exchange social media info (whatever you're comfortable with as long as it has a voice chat feature) and if something happens you can contact me. The only thing you have to share with me is your social media account, so that we can be connected. I'll have my notifs on, so if I'm available I'll reply asap.

If there's anyone who's interested in this, please reply/PM me. If there are a lot of people interested, I might make this into a project mainly consisted of students in my university who have experience or are interested in translation and starting their own projects. If that happens, I will try to look for members who are fluent in other languages, so please let me know what languages you'd like available. I think I can get Korean, Chinese (not sure what dialect they have), and Burmese students since I have some friends, but this isn't a guarantee.

Also, this is just a random thought for now, so there might be flaws that I haven't thought out. If you find any, please let me know so I can improve. I'm accepting questions about it, so please feel free to comment!

Edits: I'll keep adding detail to the concept, but the initial idea is the same. I deleted the part about maybe going to you when something happens because it will probably take too much time and I didn't want to make it seem like I'm doing this for people in Tokyo only.

ETA: Please don't send medals, I appreciate the gesture but they're clogging up my notifs and I'm afraid I'm going to miss the actual translation requests.
