Watashi Kono Mama de Ii no Kana mini subbing project

09 February 2018 - 09:53 AM

Hi everyone! Sorry for not being here in a while... I've been a bit preoccupied with subbing, classes, and work... lol

 

But anyways! As far as I can tell, I haven't seen the lyrics for this song translated (or even posted anywhere for that matter), so I decided to sub her performance from Music Fair, which you can watch/download below! Enjoy!

P.S. I just used a video from YouTube for this project. If anyone knows where I might find a better quality video, please let me know!


Happy New Year!

01 January 2018 - 03:52 PM

Happy New Year, everyone! I have some exciting announcements to make regarding my subbing activities in 2018!

 

First, my new subbing project is already in the works! This time, to commemorate BoA's upcoming Japanese tour concert and to commemorate the first of BoA's merchandise that I ever bought, I will be subbing BoA's The Face concert. This concert also holds a very important meaning to me as fansubber because it was the first project that I ever worked on (if anyone remembers the last talking segment from this concert that BoANOSS released all those years ago... lol), and this time I will be translating all the talking segments! I might not get to subtitle the songs anytime soon because there are so many other concerts on the list (hint hint ^^).

 

Next, I would like to let everyone know that I will be updating my progress on my twitter (@BoAddict) and instagram (@hyominniemouse) with screenshots of my works (which if you guys look closely enough, you might find out at least how far I'm done with this project already ^^), so please feel free to follow me there to get updates! I'm still very new to using these types of platforms, but I will try to make updates as frequent as possible.

 

I wish everyone and our dear BoA success in 2018!

 

P.S. I'm also quite a huge T-ara fan if you guys haven't noticed lol

The subbing is complete!

 

For this concert, I didn't hardsub into the video because the concert is quite large, but I will provide everyone with my subtitle file here: https://drive.google...Pt_EiJgxJYNsplH

 

For the concert, you can download it here: https://4sashi.com/2...008-the-face-2/

 

For how to watch the video with subtitles, please refer to this post here: http://forums.boajja...ject/?p=2309052

 

And if anyone's interested, please read my instagram post where I share some of my thoughts and resolution here: https://www.instagra.../p/Bdhe0HiHiCz/

 

Thank you and enjoy!


BoA Special Live: NOWNESS in Japan Subbing Project

26 October 2017 - 02:09 PM

Hi, everyone! As the titles implies, I am pleased to announce that I have begun subbing the NOWNESS in Japan concert! I mentioned that I had some concerns in my previous subbed video thread, but the quick responses that I saw gave me the motivation that I needed to start this project!

Now, there are some things with this project that I feel that it's right for me to address to everyone. One is that this will actually be my first project that I will be doing without a Chinese subbed video as my main source for translation, meaning I am doing all the translations (for the dialogues) based on my own experiences with Japanese (which started because I wanted to understand BoA's Japanese music lol). Please rest assure that I do know what I'm translating (for the most part) because I have taken four years of Japanese in college and even earned a certificate that allows me to work in Japan (if I wanted to). Though of course, my Japanese still isn't perfect, so there may be parts that will be slightly harder to translate. So if any translations turned out weird in the end, please understand that I tried my best in translating lol.

The next thing I want to address is the file size. I mentioned in the other thread that the file I have is already 9.3gb, so the final hardsubbed video might be over 10gb. If everyone is fine with that, I don't mind working with what I already have. But if anyone thinks that is too large, I would like to ask if anyone knows where I might find a smaller version or if anyone can help me make a smaller version. In the meantime though, I will be subbing with the large file that I already have.

Last thing is something fun that I've always wanted to try is karaoke style subbing. I have never actually done this before, and I feel that it's appropriate for this project. This will definitely take some time for me to work on, so I plan on making two releases: a first release with just what BoA says to the audience and a second release with the karaoke included too!

I don't want to overhype this project because that will only increase the pressure on me lol, but please do anticipate for when this project will be completed, and I will work towards completing this project in a timely fashion

[Subbed Video] BoA Please Take Care of My Refrigerator

05 September 2017 - 10:21 PM

For all the people waiting for this project to be completed, I deeply apologize to everyone eagerly waiting for this project for how long it took me to finally complete this project, but the wait is over! Well, just a little bit longer lol. The video is finally done subbing, and all I need to do now is to upload it and share it with everyone~

 

I want to take this opportunity to thank Kwcty6888 for helping me translate half of the video (in a much more timely manner than I did). You're the best!

 

I also want to clarify why it took so long for me to finish even after the translations were done. When I received Kwcty6888's half of the translations a few months ago, I still had to manually input each and every one of his lines into the program (copy & pasting wouldn't work), and real life kept getting in the way...

Next Subbing Project

09 May 2016 - 01:15 PM

Hi everyone, I got some good news (which you may have guessed from the title already lol): I've decided to start subbing another project very soon! Though I would like everyone to make a vote on which project you would like to see subbed next. For now, I would like to work on either BoA's appearances on Thank You or her appearance on Please Take Care of My Refrigerator. I will check which one has more votes next Monday, and I will start working from there lol.

 

Also while I'm at it, if anyone is experienced with translating Chinese subtitles or is fluent in Korean and you are interested in helping me out, your help with these projects will be greatly appreciated :D
