It's been a loooooong time coming, but I finally wrote up a FAQ to keep linked up on the Taiji Project profile. Keep in mind that this is subject to change.

Massively long, so click here to readCollapse )

Got a question that wasn't answered here? Ask away in a comment, and I'll either answer you directly or add it to the FAQ (or both)!

sorry to bother, I've previously downloaded files with your translation. When I mention to a friend over the net about it, she said she wanted to start a sub group but due to the lack of Japanese translator, she wanted to see if she could use some of the English translation and then translate it into Chinese and sub them. She would do it with proper credit, no sharing it on streaming sites or any other request there might be.

Let me know if this is a possibility, since she's not a member of livejournal I have to ask for her.

also if it's okay for me for me to reupload some of the files to share with a few friends, they're not livejournal users so they can't access it themselves. If not it's okay, just want to ask permission before I do anything.

looking forward on hearing back from you. :)

Sure, that sounds good to me! I'm always in favor of spreading the dork love to as many people and languages as possible ^^ Good luck to your friend and her group with the new subs!

And yeah, I don't mind private re-uploading for friends as long as they know that no sharing is allowed and it won't go any further than their systems. Thanks for checking with me first ^_^

uwaaa.. Arashi fans are lucky.. coz there are some people like u who are generously sharing Arashi files ^_____^ i've been looking around for this past few months and i'm grateful that there are so many Arashian (and other Johnny's Ent's groups) communities here..

I just <3 you so much.
Thank you for your patience.
I get intimidated sometimes by the official forums, knowing I'll ask a dumb question, or in the wrong place -- but if I keep quiet I'm the pariah leecher.
I'm sure people give you a lot of trouble and frustration, so thank you for being so kind to us.
If you have a stalker-safe address like a PO box, I'd like to send you a present some time (I'm a procrastinator so it might not be asap.)
There's also a way to address things "general delivery" so the post office keeps it for you to pick up, so you don't have to give out your address.
Nov. 26th, 2008 06:52 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you ♥ Honestly I have very, very rarely felt annoyed or frustrated with any member of this site/comm in the year and a half or so I've been running it... only one or two instances come to my mind, and I might be able to think of more if I dig a bit deeper. But overall this fandom has been amazing, so as I see it, I'm only repaying the kindness I've found here in my own humble little way. ^^

And, ahh... I'm terrible at accepting praise and gifts and stuff, so I always just say there's no need... but I do have a PO box address, so if you remind me later in a PM or something I'll send it to you there :D;;
Nov. 27th, 2008 03:22 pm (UTC)

Yo becky!! I moved from leaving you messages at taiji fansub to taiji project. Just wondering, if we have a midwest JE fan gathering, would you come??? I would love to meet you!!

I had BIG snow here today. bleah. I would opt for snow flurries anytime. and your job is so cool, i wish i could do something japanese related, but no, my only connection to japan is that my PHd supervisor is japanese, and he's very big, so once NHK came to do a documentary abt him, and I got screen time. YAY to that. :D
Dec. 15th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
A fan gathering would be awesome! No idea if I would be able to make it though, since my brother recently destroyed my car so traveling is gonna be hard for a while T_T

I definitely had a few strokes of really good luck to end up with the "job" I have... too bad translating for indie bands doesn't exactly pay well. >.> I kinda wish it did... talk about a dream job, haha.

Yay for appearing on NHK! :D What kind of screen time did you get?

hi there, i just wondered.
i want to request a song (translation) and don't know where to put it so i hope here is fine? (i know where to drop fansub-request but not the actual songs...)

anyway. do you know matsujun no uta? there is a video of this, it was the 'how is it going' tour where they celebrated matsujuns 20th birthday with a song nino had written. what i never knew: the song they showed in the video wasn't the complete one. so recently i found the mp3 with the complete song (recorded by a fan) and wondered if you could try to translate this? 'cause it seemed funny.
the version is not the best... but i dare to request anyway. (will give you the link if you're willing to do this)

onegai shimasu?
Dec. 28th, 2008 04:05 am (UTC)
Ahh, sorry I didn't get to this sooner! x_x Crazy holiday week and overstuffed inboxes...

I've actually been interested in hearing the full version of Matsujun's birthday song for a while, since I saw at the end of the video when he holds up the open CD, the extra lyrics are written on the sleeve... but it was too blurry for me to read. I never imagined the full version would actually be available anywhere o_o So yeah, I would love to have that link and hopefully it will finally help me finish the full translation!

Thanks for telling me the website! You're awesome ^_^
Dec. 24th, 2008 11:42 pm (UTC)
amazing! you did everything by yourself, translates it all before hardsubbing them! absolutely amazing! *applause*

and i thought you were an arashi fan from the very start! great FAQ post. it's almost like an interview. XD

thank you for all the hardwork.
Jan. 2nd, 2009 06:08 pm (UTC)
May I ask you some question?

If I need to make some video with my country's language.
Can I translate from your hard sub?


Happy New Year 2009.
Wish you all the best.

And, Thank you for your hardworking. ^^
Jan. 5th, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
Sure, that's fine with me! I'm all for spreading the crack to as many people and languages as possible :3

Happy New Year to you too! ^^

Fanvid Permission
Hi- thanks for all the great work you've been doing- you videos have saved me from boredom a great many times :-)

Just a quick question- I've made a short fanvid (1.5mins long) using snippets of some of your works (Dno, Gno, and a couple of others).
Would it be ok to put the video on YouTube and LJ?
I have a "all credit to original uploaders" phrase in the credits.

Thank You

Re: Fanvid Permission
Sure, I have no problem with quick clips for fanvid purposes ^^ Thanks for checking with me first!

Hi Thanks for all the amazing translations and sub <3

I have a small request. can you translate Tokio's song- Akireru Kurai Bokura wa Negao it is the b- side song for Amagasa. i just heard it yesterday and i fell in love with it *___* i wanna know what the lyrics mean onegaishemasu ^^

Have a nice day \^^/
Jan. 20th, 2009 06:36 am (UTC)
Re: Request~
I actually still have a standing request for Amagasa that keeps eluding me... now I have an excuse to work on the whole single together XD So yeah, I'll save that and see if I have any luck with it sometime ^^

Hello! Thank you so much for the great work, esp the D and G no Arashi subs!

Em, I have a request though, I saw that you've subbed a couple of Oguri Shun vids, so I was just wondering if you'd consider doing his appearance on Kuwazugirai? I got the link to it here :http://christwong1060.livejournal.com/2081.html?view=18209#t18209

It seemed like a really funny vid, Kuwazugirai eps usually are. I hope you enjoy it too! :)

Feb. 10th, 2009 05:55 pm (UTC)
I love Kuwazu Girai! :D Coincidentally I've been talking with one of the Tomalicious subbers about collaborating on Shun's episode, so it may very likely be a future project ^_^

we're just new to the fansubbing world
Hi!, you don't know me, but we always visit your site for Arashi updates :D
We are in a middle of a fassubbing project and we have one tiny question??

"How do you attach your image to your work? i mean your logo"

we're also using your software, Aegisub and we've been trying to attach our logo to our works but to no avail.

thanks in advance :)
Feb. 10th, 2009 06:05 pm (UTC)
Re: we're just new to the fansubbing world
I attach my logo in the encoding stage with VirtualDub. The logo image should be in TGA format, and you can encode it into the video by opening the Filters menu and selecting Logo. In the window that pops up, there's a box that says Logo Image and one that says Alpha Image, with 3 checkboxes between them; make sure to select the same file for both the Logo and Alpha images, and check all 3 of the boxes. Then you just adjust the position, opacity, etc. as you like it, and voila - logo! ^^

I hope it's the right place to ask... first, I'd like to thank you for all your amazing translations, you're really one of the best translators I know ♥

I'd like to request a song, if that's okay.(^^; The lyrics for it are in this post--it's dollis marry's "Daddy came". I'd be really thankful if you could translate it, but I also understand if you don't have time for it or simply don't want to.(^^
Feb. 17th, 2009 09:53 pm (UTC)
Aww, thank you! I'm so glad you've been enjoying them that much ^__^ And ok, I'll save those lyrics and hopefully see what kind of luck I'll have with them sometime!
