someone who works at seven seas basically outright admits they fucken did it deliberately in a off-hand comment

this came on to my feed and I think it needs more coverage and should go viral

(also take a drink for more "ma union")

Someone on fedi posted a template for a complaint email for atlus jp
Here it is if you want to inform them about the quality of their translators
The problem with using "templates" is that it's usually a way for companies to just say "you're all bots", and ignore you.
It's best if everyone writes their own shit, and this is why Goobergaber never truly worked because people were too lazy.
I mean, I did two email campaigns, nobody did shit even when given the resources. :kekw:

Just do it for the fun of it. Even in bot style, it might still attract their attention towards the situation.

In general, these companies refuse to listen unless people stop buying their games and sales are impacted, but sadly most people are weak losers with no principles.

Everyone knows it and it is old but im just posting this for any onlookers and general documentation
These people intend to force you out and replace you with their friends/cronies/useful idiots and merely see translation corruption as another vector to do so
Evil doesnt create it only corrupts
Never believe them, never show them quarter

Pokémon localizer made a strawman thread regards to localization.

No matter how much they try to bury it in pilpul, they always tell on themselves
>impossible to translate "dont call me autie/ dont call me big sis"
>ageist
Oops mask off
nice little shibboleth
It isnt impossible to translate, it is impossible for you to make it unproblomatic for your tastes
If you take such an issue with that harmless gag, how do you handle something more contenious?

Then here as you can see from seven seas themselves.

Not sure if it's helpful at all or if I've done everything correctly with sharing the info and archiving. She had her account privated for a while.
Has anyone read the Seven Seas release? I know the scanlations are readily available, but I'm ready to get rid of my Seven Seas stuff if they fucked this series up.

Hey guys, this person I believe translated lolicon as p*dophile, I'm unaware of the show, but I heard the dub/official subs used lolicon so I'm assuming the characters used the word lolicon in the japanese audio right?

I heard this was from some fan sub. so even if it's cringe as fuck and they should be bullied. not really something to get super bent out on

I recall there was a case ages ago from funi where they did the same. but in this case idk. go torrent a different sub

Wow, I actually just saw some people I never thought I'd ever, EVER catch even knowing about varis bitching about this thread. The fucking mongrels actively argued with me in VC about why all of this is unnecessary. Well, since you're stalking the thread let me make it clear here instead; It's fucking racist and plagiarism to change established themes or elements of a creative work you did not author whilst still advertising it as if it is the same product being sold. It is culture erasure, and I wish each and every one of the faggots and localizers who patrol this thread a very severe case of food poisoning you disgusting fucking maggots.
