Quotes from The Judges
Translation Mistakes to Avoid
All translators make mistakes at times, but not all mistakes are created equal. Some mistakes cost the translator more points than others when they are found in a submission to a contest like this one, or when submitted to a professional manga publisher in the hope of getting work. All the mistakes shown here are fairly common with young translators, and if one can correct these mistakes before making a submission, the chances of receiving paying work get better.
