Comparing bad translations challenge
Many people will tell you that WFP translations are horrible, inaccurate and all wrong. the answer to that is, maybe. some are wrong, yes, but they have been corrected and because the group was private, you didn't get them. But semantics aside. Here's a nice try to see who has the best translation, so let's pick something recent:
let's pick a random chapter of Baki Dou, something you can easily compare and then comment on any changes you find in this one chapter: CHAPTER 116 BEAST.
There are 4 versions, Spinnyback, the original translation from my guy and my own version afterwards, I'm including the original chapter raw to make it easier from you. I don't speak Japanese but I want you to see the evolution of what I get and what I do with it.
Spinnyshit version ( mangadex) (Bonus points, know that the last page of spinnyback they say "Masaka..." in Japanese. https://mangadex.org/chapte202897/1
My version which is far superior, It's not redrawn because it's a pirate version and I don't plan to replace or emulate the eventual licensed product. https://www.mediafire.com/file/386dj05irbricjb/%5Bwild_fang__project%5D_Baki_Dou_116_plus_raw.zip/file
Next, is the original script of the chapter (outta the weekly, It had information about the anime) Note that this is what we get when we pay a translator. Direct translations are NOT USABLE for English versions. because, this sounds silly but Japanese is not glisten. Read the 3 and compare. Let me know which one you like
Baki Dou chapter 116:
Musashi's blade or Pickle's fangs!?
The reunion of the ultimate battle that exceeds the time!!
One of them cuts, and
The other bites
Miyamoto Musashi vs. Pickle
Which one of them
Chapter 116 - BEAST
Anniversary Kick Off
We are planning something big for Baki's 25th anniversary!! Issue 43 that will be released on September 21st will become a special issue for Baki series 25th anniversary, as we will announce the long-awaited plans and news to our loyal fans!!
Hit and be hit...
Kick and be kicked...
Real and smooth...
The meeting of the moving beasts!!
As expected, the place for their second battle is...!!
Japan's greatest stadium, Tokyo Dome
Deep down this facility
There is a place unknown to people
The underground arena
of Tokyo Dome...
In the past, there was this term called the martial arts boom
The trend comes and goes, but
It has nothing to do with this arena, because
In here, it's always full
Because the chosen guests
who are invited to this place
in this place, they can watch the "strongest creature on earth"
I can even feel it from here
The same heat
I always feel
This is the battle between Warring States Period
This is the place where you can see
the "strongest creature on earth"!!!
In a glimpse, you can tell that they are all familiar faces
The masters of their own
They did not come here because they were interested
They came here because they wanted to see it with their own eyes
As the chosen creatures
covered in sweat and blood,
they were led here naturally!!!
What they want to see is a "fight"
not a "public execution"!
not a "slaughter"!!
You should never look down on them...
The natural enemy of T-rexes...!
Is he going to
be chopped down
Eh!? Ah... eeeeeeh...!? Seriously!?
To be continued
