Oh, Stacey does a live-action anime podcast? Cool! I was an animator for Alita: Battle Angel at Weta Digital, that was a lot of fun to work on!

Great episode yet again, love hearing about wiki work.

Yeah, if you're interested, here's a link with the episodes we've done so far: https://anibroscreative.com/category/reel-japan/ (audio quality and editing may be dubious on some earlier episodes, but I like to think we've improved as time has gone on :P ). Alita is one that we've watched and have plans to record an episode about (I think it looked great!) Meanwhile, I need to go edit some episodes that were recorded long ago that have just been sitting around waiting for me to get to them :?

Awesome! I have a few shots that I animated in the final movie, although I did a lot of attaching robot arms to people too! Would love to hear your thoughts on the movie itself. : D

So good of you to telluce and lettuce know all about the Tullece Corps.

*Ahem*

Kaio-approved puns aside, it never fails to blow my mind just how much Kanzenshuu is up my ally. I'm into comics, languages, making sure information is as correct/accurate as possible, etc... I even have a degree in translation (although not Japanese, sadly), so whenever I hear people like Julian or Stacey describe their translating process exactly the way I would approach translations, I'm always overcome by a sense of heartwarming relief. Like yes, these people truly know what they are doing and all the Dragon Ball material they handle is in excellent hands.

Puns are always welcome :lol:

Glad to hear that my ramblings on the translation process make sense! I actually never had any sort of formal classes dedicated just to translation theory; the only official practice I could say I had was sometimes during the course of Japanese classes we would translate the things we were reading, and the professor would give notes/corrections. So my own preferences and process were mostly self taught through watching and analyzing how other people approached translation, then deciding what I personally agreed or disagreed with. So it's a relief that in the end I've come to the point where my process lines up with people who have done more formal study of the art of translation :D

Wow! It's honestly surprising to hear that you haven't had any formal classes, because the whole "read the text in its entirety before you begin" is like Translation 101 stuff that I heard over and over throughout the course I took. :lol:

There is, of course, a world of difference between translating some random school-assigned text, or translating something you're passionate about. There have definitely been times when I slacked on coursework translation and only did a half-assed-but-acceptable job, but if I was asked to translate something like an Akira Toriyama interview, you bet I'd go all-in making sure I got it as right as I possibly could. I'd probably even go a bit paranoid, scared that I wouldn't be able to do justice to the original message.

Because there's always THAT paradox - being a translator but part of me not quite approving of translation because it can never be 100.00% accurate. :P Some things will always slip through the cracks, such as Amond's speech quirks (which was an interesting tidbit to learn about!).
