Hi, I’m interested in subtitling from English to Chinese (simplified) or Chinese to English!


#3543

If anyone needs help, I can translate from english to german

Hi dear,
I kindly suggest you learn the basics like “how to subtitle” first. Editing isn’t just
grammar, spelling and syntax. I understand your sentiment. It took me to Memory Lane as that’s what got me into helping with the English subs.

Did you watched before or after TE, GE, or CE? There are different factors dear. I encourage you to learn the basics, common etiquette for volunteers, obtain the appropriate status then move onto edit. We need more experience editors in our community. Good luck in your journey! Fighting! Jiayou!

I encourage you to learn the basics, common etiquette for volunteers, obtain the appropriate status then move onto edit.

You have been in her shoes too, and it took you to memory lane because both of you want/wanted to help by improving the English subtitles (I remember those days too). You say she should learn the basics? Why not suggest some of the basic to her from your own experience?

Common etiquette for volunteers? Why not suggest links that can help her explore those etiquettes you feel a volunteer here need so much to edit an English subtitle?

Obtain the appropriate status? That is; if she EVER gets the chance to move on and be part of a team since we have a ‘‘buddy system’’ here, that closes doors for many with bigger and better skills but are never given a chance to show their full potential.

YES, good luck @kimanjo_519… you ‘‘gonna’’ needed if you ever want to edit any work (sub) here. Don’t worry about before a TE, GE, or CE since some say they are so great, and leave a lot to desire in their ‘‘editing jobs.’’

It will help if you can elaborate more on your experience as an editor. Look at it as a ‘‘resume’’ the more you show your expertise, the more appealing you become as a future editor for this so wonderful site. Break a leg (I know it’s good luck for theaters lol).

Everybody, let’s keep this thread light and welcoming for the new volunteers. If something needs to be discussed in further detail, please open another thread.

Hello, I can help subtitle from english to italian! :smile:

I don’t know the context, so I can’t say for sure whether it made sense there, but having thick skin is an expression meaning you don’t easily let what others say or do get to you. So if for example someone would laugh at her because of her poor Hungarian, she wouldn’t get upset about it.

Hi, my name is Gabs, I was away from Viki for a while because of school, but now I want to subtitle again.
If you’re looking for someone to translate from English to Portuguese (Brazil), I am the right person.
Sincerely, Gabs

Hello,

I would like to translate subtitles from Korean to English or Japanese to English. I grew up in a multilingual household so I can comfortably speak English, Korean, and Japanese. Please reach out to me if you need any assistance with translating Korean or Japanese dramas to English. :slightly_smiling_face:

This isn’t the thread for training editors. No need to twist my kind comment. Those suggestions helped me in the first place.

Viki provides many resources. Check them out! It might help you, too.

  1. Start with the basics, -subbing. Obviously, she can’t start with segging.
    How to Subtitle https://www.viki.com/videos/1167816v
  1. https://support.viki.com/hc/en-us/articles/222711688-Common-Etiquette-for-Volunteers
  1. Viki recognize volunteers. See ranks here. https://contribute.viki.com/perks
  1. Viki is a fun place to be where you can make friends and work harmoniously. If this is what you called buddy system, I love it. Of course, drama happens. You choose how to react. Unlike you, my experience has been positive. If you were told “no,” it’s ok. It’s not because a “buddy system.” Teams can fill up pretty quickly specially English, Spanish, and Portuguese. I give opportunities to new subbers on my channels. I did it on ‘My Girl’ recently. Many helpers earned their first badge and status in this channel.
  1. You should’ve share links specially when you consider yourself experienced. Since you didn’t, I shared some. For more, do a quick search.
  1. The very first steps were suggested.

Much love!

Hi, I’m CM for Heirs. We don’t have an Hindi moderator. Yesterday, I added a Hindi subber. Would you like to sub together? If you’d like to help, contact me directly at https://www.viki.com/users/lazarini/overview

@fallenblackhero_130 @irene_fr002_536

I’m a channel manager for My Girl. Our Italian moderator Klaudiotta has the Italian team open. Contact her here, https://www.viki.com/users/klaudiotta/overview

Good luck to both!

Usually, whenever you see weird, hard to understand English subs for Chinese dramas it’s because the English subs are wrong (in different aspects) and not per default because Chinese itself makes no sense per default.

I’m just mention this here since every Chinese drama I was working on had such issues, no matter if it was a fantasy, historical or modern age drama/setup/plot.

I’ve spend much time talking with Chinese native speakers in such cases and even relatively simple sentences of modern age plots could have wrong English sentences up to the point that the English subs didn’t make any sense at all (after the edit was done) so my friends said that obviously Chinese is too hard to translate for non native speakers in a couple of scenes.

(It also happened that the English sentence had a complete different meaning than the spoken sentence.)

In case you still like watching some Chinese dramas but are too annoyed by unclear / weird English subs [here] you could try watching it with official English subs (they tend to be shorter, clearer and with simpler wording based on my experience).
