Maybe I missed something but I didn’t see where to find an existing Google doc to start from. Or am I supposed to create one? I probably should have asked about that yesterday to clarify but I didn’t think to do so. Sorry about that. I did read through the SRT file and I can see that it won’t take me long to make a few suggestions. So I can probably do a first draft tonight after work if I know where to do it. Apologies again if I missed something obvious.
Okay, here is a first pass in a Google Doc. I took the approach of highlighting a section and giving an alternate suggestion in a comment. Let me know if that doesn’t make sense.
The existing version is very understandable and I think most English readers would have no trouble following along. So my suggestions are really just what I think would be a little more native or natural English. Of course I’m from the USA, so I tried not to over-Americanize it and really just focus on smoothing the flow where I thought it might help. But, like I said, the original isn’t hard to follow and I think I only found one actual typo.
Let me know if anything is unclear, etc. And it won’t hurt my feelings at all if you don’t use my suggestions. I can also apply any or all of these in a PR against the SRT file if you want. Here’s the link:
Hi Matt! I have reviewed all changes - there are just a few places where I put comments, lease check.
Yes, smoothing the flow, catching grammar errors and ensuring the text is clear to understand - that’s what we were after. Thank you!
Yes, it would be really good if you can make a PR with final version here - GitHub - morevnaproject-org/morevna-translations-en
This GitHub repo is intended to be temporary storage for results of our translation activities and I plan to clean up it from time to time. But committing changes there will allow other people who contributed to translation to see the fixes and learn from them.
Okay, I responded to your questions and comments. I didn’t go ahead and do the PR yet mostly because a couple of my responses gave options. But I can do that tomorrow evening after work if you want. Just let me know. And apologies again for not being able to get to it as quickly as I’d originally hoped this weekend.
Hi Matt! I was unable to accept my edits in Google Docs (because I am not the owner of the document), so I have applied all edits to a separate SRT file and uploaded it to this topic - [Voicing-En] Pepper&Carrot Backstage Vol. 1
You can use this SRT file for PR.
