Any semi-fluent Japanese speakers here?

Postby rocklee24 » Wed May 04, 2016 8:29 pm

Hello, everyone!

I am in a lookout for anyone who have been at least intermediate or fluent in the Japanese language. I don't know where else to post my topic, so i'd figure I start here if it's not any trouble.

The reason why I ask is because I am in need of several line translations for a script me and my fan-dubbers are currently working on. It's based off of Capcom and SNK and we want it to have a bit of an international feel to it.

The main characters that I will be portraying are Japanese, but I want the lines to sound true to their national origins as possible.

So if you, or if you know anyone, who is interested, please reply here as soon as possible! You will be credited for your help!

Thank you!

It's a fan-based project with an original story that's inspired by previous Capcom and SNK story, such as Street Fighter, King of Fighters, so it's technically a video, using sprites and drawings as main mediums.

And do you know anyone who can translate in Japanese?

There are a handful of people who I know are pretty capable in Japanese here, so if you wait a bit I'm sure they'll pop out of the woodwork. I'd offer, but while I'm currently studying I'm fairly certain my fluency is not at the level you're looking for.

Thanks for your consideration! It's just several handful of sentences and phrases here and there, some I already know and others I don't know. Usually I write down certain sentences that's familiar to me, but I don't want to sound too generic, I just wanted to add flair, sass and personality to each individual characters.

Anyways, it doesn't have to be TOO fluent, but just enough to be recognizable and to make sense. Do you know anyone, though?

I know a couple people, though whether they would have time for it or not is a completely different question. You might ask Kaori, who I've seen active around here recently.

Hey, Elric, I reached out to her and, unfortunately, it's a no-go. So my search continues...

Hmm... I know a few people who have the skill you need, but likely not the time required to invest in something like this. You could ask goldenspines, one of the mods here, but I know she has quite a full plate herself. Gah, sorry, I'm running a blank!

Please be on the lookout for potential candidates! Thank you so much for your suggestions! I'll try her out!

If you know a few, please let me know here!
