Fan Translations

Fan Translation is a broad term that refers to the fanac of the unofficial translation of source media or fanworks into other languages.

Fans have translated everything from video games, books, short stories, films, comics, television shows, manga, anime, doujinshi, and fanfiction so they can share their enjoyment of the source with other fans who don't know the source language.
