The Translations Team first began to take shape on October 15th, 2013 when @shaysonic and @MomoMoon115 asked around for Chinese speakers. (Fossil #1 recalls being recruited in the Chinese Fanturd thread while Fossil #2 responded to Shay on Twitter thinking she needed a bit of personal help.) It turned out that there was a specific goal: to generate more interest and activity in the Chinese Entertainment subforum by providing translation services! The four who responded to the call were: @King of Spades, @renn, @gackyuful, and @mirrorpurple ã‹ãŒã¿ãƒ ãƒ©ã‚µã‚­.

 

After a few days of discussion, the C-team was officially born on October 21st, 2013 with the posting of the Chinese Lyrics Translations Request Thread. The poor souls translators did not know that this would eventually turn out to be a long-term commitment, but when more members later joined the group, the C-team flourished. With this momentum, six months later, the J-team was launched on March 21st, 2014. (Fossil #3 is still hard at work to this day!) Two weeks after that, on April 5th, the K-team came into existence.

 

This year, we celebrate the Translations Team's fifth birthday, with gratefulness towards over 100 past and current translators as well as pride for having accomplished the translation of over 1800 songs.

@renn

A lazy potato from the Great White North. Fluent in English and Mandarin, with an interest in history and classical poetry that has been great for period drama OST translation requests. Will translate Japanese when bribed and can manage French when desperate. Knows some Korean by osmosis. Hibernates (or at least would like to) for half of each year. A tea person. Easily lured by food. Likes to offer trivia to people who haven't asked.

Your J-Lyrics flop translator. Lives in the Mediterranean in winter, dwells in the northern parts of Europe in the summer Can't stand the heat. Studied Japanese for the sake of reading manga (Damn you One Piece!!). Came to Kpop fandom for EXO stayed for BTS. Loves anything chocolate, ice cream, tea and a well made hot ramen soup. Trying to study Mandarin Chinese and Korean (with great failure so far).

Been on the Translations Team as a Korean translator since 2014, Japanese translator since 2017. Trans Team has always been an important part of my life. In love with D.O, J-Hope, Lee Jehoon... and many others ⤠Am currently learning 12 languages (emphasis on currently because I have a serious obsession). Love all languages, cultures, and feel the world can be united by music. What I feel D.O is constantly thinking: I know what I need to know.

@pullava

From Northern Europe. Speaks a lot of languages, including English, Korean and various European languages, with varying levels of fluency. Understands but doesn't speak or write Japanese. Former idol fan of almost a decade, current variety show enthusiast. Interested in linguistics, books and winter sports. Likes sleeping. Stereotypical cat mom.

 

@sunflower

C-Translator (since Dec 19, 2018)

★

Currently lives in Victoria, Australia. Fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, can understand Cantonese to some degree and is now studying French. Strengths include eating (could probably start a mukbang channel) and binge-watching dramas. Weaknesses include pollen and heat (Melbourne's spring and summer seasons summed up in two words!). Enjoys baking, travelling, drawing and reading.

 

@Evee

K-Translator (since Dec 23, 2018)

Born in Romania but living in London for the past decade. Aspirant writer and translator, can speak Korean and maybe loves Korea a bit too much. Languages and literature fan. Also really likes cute cafes and taking photos of everything and sunsets on the beach. Not very into Korean TV but weirdly obsessed with all Produce seasons. Can spiritually identify with like all Heize songs.

I don't wanna sound rude, but why is the K-section dead?

I have a request from September 2017 that was never done.

I've had some other unpopular songs in mind but I can never request them because the thread is always locked.

The reason is a lack of K-translators. We haven't had any success with recruitment and @j_ana has been the sole K-trans for the past year. Unfortunately, she hasn't been active due to personal reasons and other commitments. However, more recently, she has organized the list of outstanding requests for herself in hopes of gradually working her way through them. The thread has been locked to give her time to clear the backlog.

Ummm... so do you think Baekho is the sexiest man alive? 

 

Are you hoping to have competition for Baekho's love?

Hello lovestruck.png

 

Why did the translators colors change? xD

 

Actually, half the staff groups have changed colours! We had a vote and the team decided to change to something other than yellow. I believe this is the team's fourth colour since our establishment. :9
