When I first came here, I basically had two mentors. An Italian one and a Greek one. The Italian one kept the team name exactly as it was in English, saying that the English team name is valid for all languages. The Greek one used to invent her own Greek team name - and still does.
In the course of the past months, I’ve also seen Spanish teams who give their own team names. For instance, I remember that in Soulmate, the Spanish team name was “Media naranja”
Now that I am a moderator myself, and a Channel Manager for a couple of projects, I would like to have a definitive answer on what is the accepted norm about that. Or isn’t there any, and each team does as they wish?
In my opinion they should stick with the English team name but you’re right I work in the spanish team and they always have another team name. I swear, it makes no sense to me. I also HATE long team names bc you have to write so much more is bad enough all the time it takes to sub this only adds more words and time.
True. I sometimes translate the team name and sometimes make my own. Transliterating team names and drama names just doesn’t work for me.
In case of the CMs who prefer one team name for all of their projects, I invent my own. Translating them just doesn’t work. The team names I choose are often word plays on the drama name.
For these shows, I came up with my own name: Love in Black Hole - ब्लैक होल का काला चिट्ठा - Black Hole’s Black Letter - Black Hole’s Secret. Yumi’s Cells - यूमी की खूबी - Yumi’s Specialty A-Teen 2 - जवानी दीवानी - Romantic Youth
