Strip 65 - http://maliki.com/strip.php?strip=65
The translation team agreed with your sentence and so we validated this strip too
Thanks again !
All those strips and only 3 of you? omg.
(very nice work though.
) Maybe if we all work together, we can reduce that mountain of work into rubble!
Also, what happened to the first translation team? Maliki and the strip are too awesome to just stop working on it and disappear...
In fact, I was in the first translation team too. At that time, we had just one topic to make our translations so it was a little messy. A lot of people came and joined for short periods and left, and came back again and so on. This was really difficult to manage cause there was a lot of translations underway and newcomers sometimes prefered to just purpose a translation for a strip they like and after that they didn't come back anymore. Besides that, we didn't have just to translate, we had to clean the strips and add the words so there were cleaners, translators, scribers and so on.
Then, there was a crash. All the data of the Creative lab in the French section were lost. Some people complained, but a lot just recreated their topics and it kept going this way. But for the translation topic... All the work we were doing had then seemed to be lost and there ended the first translation team.
And then... coming from the nothingness, with a power that overwhelmed all of us, was a man. He was of pure gold and... errr I think it's a little too much, isn't it? In fact there was a member that was trying to manage all the translations in the topic. He had the motivation and he had a server in which he had kept a lot of the translations we were doing. So he bring back the topic to life, kept a list of the translated strips to date (as I'm doing now) and we began to be a little more organized.
This era lasted not a long time. The man had gone missing. He had to study and we kept going nevertheless. And then a pure morning, on a Sunday, the 13th of March 2011, the section appeared. Maliki had found in us the will and wanted at the same time to help us and to make us work better for her (as she is our goddess but also our tyrant). From then we has been organized, I has taken the management of the team cause the man was still missing.
Now, we have sometimes his visits. He comes and help us, but he don't have the time to do more. But all of those who remembered about his acts are thankful cause he is the one that allowed all of that!
XD I had fun writing this
Thanks you so much !
It really touch me that somebody remembers those dark times of translating and paint cleaning of the strips and the role I played
That was the old good time, I was studying in England, and had plenty of time for coding, translation and pixel art (I have created a fifth of the actuals smiley, all at this period).
But, then, I returned to France, and now, I have very few moments for me. I really would like to continue to translate strips, but I haven't enough time to do so -__-'
(and I'm a little bit rusty too...)
The great and powerful Maliki sent me a MP to thanks me for the work done when she creates the translation forum, but as I wasn't as present as I use to be, I don't have been honoured by a special grade or a simple public line of text.
But I know that, somewhere in her messy and goddess mind, she remembers who was on the first translation team and the huge amount of work that have been done, and I can only thank all the people that have continued to translate strips.
More particularly, thank you Manirian ! You were here at the beginning, and you are still alive and kept translating strips !
Thanks you so much !
One day, maybe, translated strips will be well known, and this day, all the translators could say to themselves "hey, if people are happy by reading this, it's thanks to my job !" "damn, we are good !"
So thank to Maliki to help translators,
thank to the translators,
and thank to the readers
Faithfully yours, [TheDarkTiger]
