subing is hard work ....very hard work .i cant explain it
It is crazy difficult-lots of respect for those who do it. I just can't believe the differences in quality/results. Most of the machine/DL translations are at least salvageable with hard work, but some "translations" are just really strange, like they went thru several different languages first. But one I am trying to edit (SSIS-300, from SubtitleCat) had this dialogue:
- "I tweeted to Zan Yixuan 18"
- "what's so good about eagle ii"
but listening to the Japanese they are saying more like:
-"I'm so surprised to see you!"
-"Why are you so surprised?"
(My Japanese is terrible, so my translation is probably terrible too, but there is nothing about tweeting or eagles, lol)
Also, the timing was so off (a rarity in my brief experience with eng. subs) that I thought the subs were for a completely different film at first.
I even downloaded the Chinese version to see if something was lost, but its the same.
I'd like to 'fix' this one, but I think it exceeds my limited Japanese.
My expertise kind of runs out after find/replacing "comfortable" and "meat stick", lol.
