Beta Community Translated Subtitle (CTS) Project

New Beta Community Translated Subtitle (CTS) Project - A new project I am working on, to prepare latest korean drama release to let the community who watch that drama help out in perfecting the subtitle releases. The initial release is done with a machine translation (not Google Translate). The translator I am using is actually pretty good, and you can really almost understand what is staying (80% at least). But, not the best grammar and some name terms not properly translated. But good enough to understand so I am calling it a Preview Subtitle.

As the community who watch that drama help out in cleaning up the unedited translation, fans can download the Community Release updated with the edited changes. Benefits of this, is the subtitle will be available very quickly.

New Forum for users

Hi Everyone,

I have setup a community forum for users to be able to allow, a new forum link is added to the navigation bar:-

URL: http://www.darksmurfsub.com/forum/

Purpose

  • With shoutbox to quickly post updates etc.
  • To let users discuss/chat with other fans
  • Or contact me directly
  • Or users interested in beta testing the web translator/editor for subtitle projects.
  • To allow me to share some other private subtitle (individual type episode releases etc).
  • For me to plan and prepare what upcoming drama projects I am interested in working on etc.

Although, a blog is good for posting public articles, nothing beats a forum for personalization and for posting small bits of updates, and to discuss on stuff etc.

Of course, just like this blog, it is newly created. So please give me sometime to work on it.

Warmest Regards
DarkSmurf

Welcome to my personal site

Welcome to my site. It is newly created, so I have not yet completed it. I have only updated the latest Dae-Mul project for a start. Plus, this site actually host my latest creation, my Web Subtitle Translator Editor which is still in development.

1) BETA Web Subtitle Translator Editor v1.0 - Created 30 Nov 2010

I have created a Subtitle Web Translator/Editor which assist me in translating/creating the english subtitle easily. There are many Korean dramas in which the chinese subtitle are out almost the next day. Using a machine/software translation, you can get a general idea but it can never beat a human translation. Hence, you still have to manually go through each line by line to clean up the translation so that it is really understandable. Hence, this editor is meant to assist me in editing/translating it. This will help me work on subtitles quickly and easily for me and my mum to enjoy watching.

Having tested it on Dae Mul Episode 17/18, the editor was a success for me. You should also noticed, the quality of translation has improved. As I can focus more time on the translation rather than flipping / scrolling through the various windows when previously doing the translation. Not only that, I find it less tiring translating here because of the colour coded display. Makes it easy for my eyes to focus what the lines to translate.

This editor helps cut down about 2 hours or so in total creation process. But is it not just for the time saving that I created it. But to have a way to translate without feeling tired. Often when I used notepad to edit. I have to open about a few windows source file, a video playback of that episode, the file to work on. When you keep looking at a white notepad editor for long period of time, your eyes naturally get tired. Hence, sometimes have to take a lot of breaks to complete working on an episode. Especially, so for a 1000 lines episode like Dae Mul. So this helps me have an easy to follow interface. Making it less tiring to translate.

2) Real-Time Subtitle Status Update

As I work on the subtitle, the subtitle will be Real-Time Subtitle Status will update on the the specific subtitle posting. So you will get the most updated status on the the subtitle translation process. Hence, I do not need to manually update the status.

Warmest Regards
