I am new on this portal and wanted to say hello to you all.
I am into K-Dramas since 2018 and I am using Viki also since 2018, but I never had a look
into the community. I just enjoyed the Drama I watched, wrote a few comments and thats it. But now I really want to be a part of this community
Also I am a new subber! Do you have any tips for me? I am translating from english to german.
Sending you all greetings and hope to have good, intrasting and funny discussions here
My tip is: find a couple of websites that have the “official” or most common translations for specialized words from English to your language - this helps a lot when you are working on dramas that use sets of specialized words, like medical, historical or sports dramas for example.
It also helps to agree on one translation for certain terms with other team members, so it’s consistent throughout the drama
Persönlich finde ich es wichtig, die Essenz beizubehalten und es gleichzeitig so zu formulieren, dass es im Deutschen natürlich klingt und sich gut liest, also nicht wörtlich alle Satzteile so übertragen, wie es im Englischen steht.
I’d also suggest to read @irmar s guide how to write good subtitles. The core aspects of her guide count for any language.
