New to this, free to help with any segmenting (does one have to know the lang?) and translations, proficient in Mandarin/Chinese.
Note to people who want to contribute. In order to segment you need to be trained, either through Seg 101 or Ninja Academy. It is not enough to just watch the videos on how to do it. You need to be supervised and have experienced segmenters train you.
If you want to subtitle on any channel, write to the language moderator for your language. If there is no moderator listed, then write to the Channel Manager. For “popular languages” such as Portuguese, Spanish, Romanian, Italian, and French, the team is often filled early – sometimes before the first episode. So it pays to check upcoming, not yet started series, and write before the first broadcast.
That’s often the case with Kdramas but less with Cdramas.
German teams are often closed for K-dramas before the series started, even before the license, short C-dramas, too. For longer C-dramas it depends on the cast ^^
do you need segmenting help?
You must first graduate from NSSA or Seg 101 to help out
While talking, some French mods happened to told me the number of French subbers who asked subtitling has been decreasing this year.
- On popular Kdramas:
~10-12 different subbers found before/around the broadcasting
~5-6 subbers in total (some of them asked along the way).
1 exception: +10 different subbers for a very romantic popular Kdrama with idols or big stars
- On Cdramas: same trend (sometimes worst for historical: 1 subber or the mod)
Before: ~ 6 different subbers
Now: 1-3 different subbers, including Moderator translating
Now, to begin/continue a drama, the moderator has to subtitle. Not only at the end or at the edition, they got to intervene.
No edition without subtitles, but the most important is the subtitles for viewers in the end.
We thought that it was because of different trends:
- the generations aged and entered college or graduated and are in active life so less time to contribute.
- easier openings for CMs and moderators positions in general for everyone (Viki staff picking different moderators and CMs), so they turned to this position.
Like emptying 1 vase (subbing) to fill another one (moderating and managing), but we don’t have a renewal of generations to fill the 1st vase. Once mod or manager, people don’t sub anymore or less when being mod/manager for their overall activity.
- more restricted access (Viki pass) and less possibilities for dramas ppl are interested in (Kocowa)
(- change of schools program: in college, less time to relax)
It’s not a good picture, like a desert.
Any Chinese to English subbers can check this thread: plenty of projects needing help. This thread was started by Mahoula, and today I updated it.
