I am not Japanese nor a student majoring in Japanese language (for your information, I studied Natural Science). I understand Japanese because I lived in Japan for 10 years. After I left Japan, I keep watching J-drama everyday to maintain my Japanese skill. And I started fansubbing because I want to challenge myself. Even though I understand both Japanese and English, translating Japanese into English is not easy for me. The grammars are completely different and there are words that are hard to translate. Since I am not English native speaker and I do all the works (translating, timing, editing) by myself (and I also have to do “real job” to make a living), I can’t make subs as fast as other subbers do. So please bear with me.
