Translation Party: [Commie vs. Hadena vs. HorribleSubs vs. UTW-Vivid] Suisei no Gargantia (Episode 01)

Fansub Review, Translation Party — By on April 9, 2013 10:45 pm

Okay, this is the last time I’m gonna say it this season: there are checkboxes. Use them if you feel you need to select more than one option. For example, in a case where two groups have the exact same translation, you can select both of them, so there’s no need to flip a coin.

Translation Party House Rules:

Spoiler:
1. Translation Parties are intended to help you make the best subtitle choice for a given anime. Choose which line(s) you liked best by selecting them with the checkbox.

2. I split the Party into two parts — Essential and Extended. Assuming you want to get this shit over with quickly, just go with the Essential choices. I picked these to be the most representative lines in the releases. But if you’re one of those people who want more comparisons to help you come to a decision, go with the Essential choices and the Extended ones.

3. If you didn’t like any of the lines, choose the “N/A” option. The results for “N/A” won’t be automatically tabulated, so you’ll have to do the math in your head. Have my gomens and nasais.

4. A “>” indicates that another character has begun speaking. If there are three characters in a line comparison, I will indicate the third with a “>>” and so on for more characters.

5. Group order is randomized for each screenshot, every time you refresh the page. However, the “N/A” option will always appear at the bottom of the screen.

6. Your results will be summed up when you click the “Get your results” button. Feel free to vote in the poll at the end/post in the comments to let others know how you did and to compare your results with them.

7. Party hard.

Commie :: In 300 seconds, the entire fleet will enter the wormhole’s ergosphere.
We’ll be swinging out right next to a Hideauze nest.
This is a surprise attack, with everything the Alliance has to throw at them on the line.
If we fail here, consider this war over.

Hadena :: In 300 seconds, the entire fleet will be entering the wormhole’s Ergo Zone.
We’ll be swinging out right next to the Hideauze nest.

UTW-Vivid :: The entire fleet will enter the ergosphere of the wormhole in three hundred seconds.
After swinging out, we’ll exit right in front of the Hideauze’s nest.
This is a surprise attack deploying every single unit the Galactic Alliance of Humankind has to offer.
It’s do or die.

HorribleSubs :: In 300 seconds, the entire fleet will be entering the wormhole’s ergo region.

Commie :: When was the last time I felt scared?
By throwing away everything I don’t need, I’ve truly become a model soldier.
Like the victory I am to achieve, everything is perfectly clear.
My conviction never wavers.
What I seek. What is sought from me.
Everything is right here.

Everything is right here.

UTW-Vivid :: When was the last time I felt afraid?
I ceased being a soldier-in-training once I learned how to forget everything unnecessary.

Commie :: It appears they are trying to damage the craft,
but have no means of doing so.
Therefore, it seems apparent that they are a rather primitive group.

Hadena :: It appears they are trying to damage the craft,
but have no means of doing so.
It also appears they are a very primitive group.

UTW-Vivid :: My observations lead me to believe they are attempting to damage the unit,
but they seem unable to do so.
Thus, it can be deduced that the level of civilization possessed by these people is low.

but have no means of doing so.
It appears they are a very primitive group.

Hm, CR script gets four? This is the first time I tried using the audio. Some of the CR edits just seemed to add unnecessary words to make things too long. Or something. Dunno.

The word “Humankind” bothers me. It always sounds to me like someone mixed up mankind and humanity. And “Galactic Alliance of Humankind” just sounds stupid.

El Huesudo II says:

Humankind is a proposed gender-neutral “mankind”, but I agree: “humanity” fits the bill without being an awkward word that doesn’t roll off the tongue.

Communard says:

Are you sure that’s how it’s used? It sounds quite silly considering “human” isn’t all that gender-neutral to begin with. I guess they have different roots and the Germanic “mann” could be considered more heavily gendered than the Latin “homo”. But it still sounds silly.

P32L says:

Actually, IIRC, mann wasn’t gendered at the time mankind was coined, and humanus (or homo, for that matter) never has been. Mankind just appears to be discriminatory as man has also referred to males for, what, a millennium?

I watched the UTW release and was kinda leaning toward it and yet Commie led the pack by six.

Anyway, the dialogues for the AI need some more work. No single group was able to get it consistently right.

I watched UTW first, then Commie’s later when it released, and I was favorably impressed by Commie’s CR-edit. That said, UTW is just as good, faster, & original translation.

Commie won the essentials against UTW-Vivid (5 vs. 3), so I am not not sure about who to go with here. Just don’t go with Hadena or HorribleSubs.

I just have to say that it really bothered me that for Essential 8, every group besides UTW-Vivid used “are” and “they” with the collective noun. A singular verb should be used except when members of the group act individually. I ended up choosing “N/A” because I didn’t like UTW-Vivid’s last line.

These increased parties have been enlightening in a few aspects, but the most disappointing one is its confirmation of how similar the scripts for most releases are these days. You basically only have an illusion of choice.

Positron says:

And here I’d considered using actual English for the text that would get converted to wingdings, as a bonus for anyone who opened the script, but ended up lazying out. Now everyone can see my lack of imagination through my random keyboard mashing. :(

Well, except for “howlewd”. That was an obvious one.

TL party Ep.02 followup:

Commie’s 02 has a number of typos and general fail, plus the encode is not good. UTW-Vivid improved over episode 01, and show good use of idioms. UTW is 100% the group to go with now, whereas after 01 I thought they were even in quality with Commie.
