So what is it when you convert text in a manga to English?--Sherrold 01:47, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Fan translated manga are called scanlations. :) --Kyuuketsukirui 08:36, 7 January 2009 (UTC)


Currently, this page is almost solely focused on fansubbers who translate anime to English. I am trying to expand into Jdrama somewhat, but there are entire universes of the fansub experience which are not represented, including different source material and different final languages. If anyone has good information on any of these others, I would be happy to move most of this material to a subpage on anime fansubbing and let this page become a portal to multiple fansubbing experiences, assuming 'fansub' is even a term preferred by any of those groups. Anyone with any background in other forms, please jump in! -the old briar pipe 21:02, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

There are fansubs in multiple languages at I can't get it to load at the moment, but there's a Kdrama fansub wiki, which I think may be this page: --Anenko 21:55, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Yup, there are Kdramas and Cdramas at Drama Wiki, which we should definitely talk about, and should be easy enough to do, though I'd prefer to get an actual expert to do the talking. Hm, I think I know someone I can nudge from among the wranglers.... Thanks for the link to Viki! Are you familiar with the site? I'm not, and I can't figure out if it's a fan/owner hybrid or a monetized fansub site something else. -the old briar pipe 22:16, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
I've only used Viki once, and found it a deeply unsatisfying experience. The drama I watched, at least, was a group project (you get the subs at the bottom, and the subbers chatting and commenting on the top of the screen. Very odd!). --Anenko 23:28, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Oh, like Niconico! That's very interesting. I can't stream well on this connection/laptop, but it might be possible to find someone who uses the site regularly to talk about it. Or perhaps Viki itself has forums. *updates to do list* -the old briar pipe 23:42, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
