Today, I got personal message from kira_kitagawa
, someone I never know, someone I never talk to..but she sent me a PM said
did you ask johnny san and johnnys entertainment to permite you to translate this articles, have you any permitions from them? XD
so how could you forbid it to anybody, That's rude, you know!
be honest. where's your manner? Keep japanese translation alive with no repost and no re-translating! ooor keep silence
My reaction first: "Uh...Wow". At least I know "permit" is not written as "permite" and plural form of permit is not written as "permitions". That's my first reaction.
But the next is I think "what she wants with that PM?". True, I never ask Johnny-san to translate magazine article. But hey,Johnny and Johnnys Entertainment don't have right to forbid me to translate magazine article. They just send their artist to magazine office, they DON'T own the article. If I have to ask permit, of course it would be Myojo, Popolo, Duet, etc. In this case, Myojo and the others magazines is publishing and selling it to the public. The consequence: information spreading, for example, when one girl buy Myojo and she talks with her friend about the Myojo article that she read, is that rude? is that no manner? Is the girl have to ask Myojo for giving her permit to tell the article to her friend? Same with me, I read the magazines, and I think "Ah this article is so interesting! I want to share it to people who can't read it!". What makes difference? The difference is I make effort to share that article to all of you. Why?
1. NOT all people understand Japanese (which is the original language of article)
2. NOT all people willing to share the article to other people EVEN THOUGH they understand Japanese
3. NOT all people willing to spare their time to translate something and moreover WITHOUT PAY
I don't mean to reference myself as a saint. But please, appreciate and respect me a bit. I never ask you to pay to read my translation, just abide the rules that I make in this community. If I say, NO REPOST AND NO RETRANSLATING, of course I have reason behind that. For people who can't abide my rules, please stay away from my community, don't ever read my translation again. If you can't understand English, LEARN! I can't believe in this globalization era, there is person who can't understand English. If you don't want learn English, learn Japanese, so you don't need read my translation, you can read the article from the original magazine directly. If you want translate it to other language besides English, DO IT BY YOURSELF! Don't re-translate my translation. Everyone can do it! For example, If you want translate it into Russian to help other Russian fellow who can't understand English very well, please learn Japanese, and then you can translate the original article into Russian. DON'T RE-TRANSLATE MY EFFORT.
Next, please comment in my translation if you read them. That encourage me so much to translate...^^
Enough from me. Have a nice day. I will post the next translation in some hours later...please looking forward for it!
