You're officially on the project now. :)

It's really awesome that you're all doing this! I've downloaded all of the scanned pages. It's amazing just how full of content the book is - info on the games, anime, and manga, quite a lot of which I've never even seen before! I know a lot about the games and the anime, but I never got to read much of the manga series so it's quite new to me.
Is there a list of people who are already working on this project and what they're doing? I'm also interested in seeing what I could do to help out. My skills in Japanese are limited, but I can still provide proofreading and image editing services for the project (I'd just need the translated text and a note about where it goes in the book). I'm quite skilled in Photoshop and I use it every day, so it wouldn't be a problem for me.


Thanks! I'm pretty excited to see how this will turn out too.
I do have a list of the members on my computer, I will post it later in the next days.
I'm very busy in the last weeks, so I couldn't do anything on the Project, to be honest.
I've made some mock-ups of how the book should look like, but I can't post it very soon. (personal life problems and lack of time).
TayoEXE was working on the translation, I don't really know his progress right now, but we need it to start working on the editing.
If we can find more translators, we can manage to fasten up the process, but right now, he's the only translator aboard.
That's why I'm looking for more translators. I can't throw everything on the poor guy. XD
It's just too much work.
If you DO know Japanese, it would be nice if you could help, even if it's in something small, like, the character's names. (there's a lot of pages dedicated to character art).
It's may sound like a small part, but it helps a lot, believe me.
If we can focus on someone translating the text and then, have somebody else translating the smaller things, it would fasten at least 35% to 40% of the progress.
While we do have a lot of people dedicated to image editing and English grammar checking, help on these areas is always welcome.
You can work on whatever you want, really.
This is just a fan project, really. We're doing it because we love Kirby and we want to see the book done in English.
No pressure at all. Feel free to work on whatever you want to. :smile:
Also, we're needing someone to check the translations and see if it has any mistakes (on the translation and it's accuracy, not the grammar itself, that's another subject).
So, you just need to pick an area (or 2, or 3 or everything you want) and start working on it.
Just let me know if you're working on it and WHAT are you working on, so I can add you to the member list. :)

I could definitely translate the character names! My Japanese is limited, but translating non-kanji names is within the scope of my abilities. I can read both hiragana and katakana, and I do have an understanding of Japanese sentence structure.

Like I said before, image editing and writing (proofreading by extension) are two things I'm good at, so I'd be happy to lend a hand in this area, as well. I'm certain the book is big enough to have room for more than a couple of team members working on that aspect of it!

I could send you a mockup of what I'm capable of doing for image editing, if you'd like. I'll have to make one first, but I can do it for you.

Thank you, BlueAizu21!
If you want to do a mockup, fell free to do it.
I would love to see what you can do. :)

I've been busy myself, but I got done with my job and head back up to college next weekend. I'll see what I can do now, but once you get up like a google drive or something, we can all share and see each other's work easily for collaboration.

Thanks! I've been busy too, but I'm working on it.
Let's see how far we can get on this project. :)
(hopefully, we'll complete it)

Here, I made a folder on my google drive. See what you think so far. I translated the first three pages and a few other parts for someone else. Let me know who will be working on it, and I will need an e-mail later so that I can share it with just those involved in the project.

Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!!!
I very busy today (and maybe tomorrow), but I'll check these as soon as possible.
After that, I will update this thread with all the information we need as the team members, e-mails, Google Drive pages, etc.
I will also post a guide later on what I think we should do on some names and general layout (adaptation-wise).
But, as I've said, this may take some few days since I'm REALLY busy right now.
But keep up the good work, Tayo! :D
Take your time, as you please. :)
If you need ANYTHING, just talk with me, and I'll be happy to help. ;)
(This is also for everyone on team, really.) :smile:

I'm just curious of what became of this project. It's amazing and brave you want to tackle the whole book and I wish you luck in recruiting more members and keep it alive. Here I must admit that scanning Mo~Pupu! is already enough work for me... and I have 13 manga of it to at least scan, hopefully edit into HQ and maybe one day wring my head around typesetting and translating its abundance of Japanese-only word plays. Japanese is one of the things I am now officially studying at my university but it will take months before I'd feel in a position to translate texts without furigana. Simply trying to find all the unknown Kanji in a dictionary is tedious without.
Sorry.

This project seems abandoned. I doubt anyone cares about it anymore.

Post subject:  Re: The "Kirby 20th Anniversary Encyclopedia" Project. (HELP WANTED)

Oh, now, just believe me in this.
The project IS NOT dead.
Just wait a little more and I'll post something REALLY interesting/useful about this.
I'm just struggling with some life issues (it's not affecting the project at all, don't worry).
But I'm pretty sure that in some more weeks, probably in November, I'll post the BIG update. ;)
Also, Sexy Slime, feel free to help if you want too.
I'm really excited about the Mo~pupu Project and I know you're having some really hard work on it,
Also, there's a section on the book that is dedicated to this specific manga.
If you want to help on that, feel free.
And if you want to be part of the actual team behind the project, just send me a message saying that you're willing to work on it and on what you're going to work with (translation, grammar fixing, image manipulation, and so on...)

I can't wait for the big update, but real life always comes first! I hope nothing too serious happened and that the update can come soon, though!

Thanks for the comprehension, MarxTrash.
My life is being a little too busy right now.
I don't even know WHEN I'll be able to post the big update.
It will be before December, I'm pretty sure, but as I've said, I'm busy with other things.
Also, it's a update on the formula of the project and directions the team will/may take.
Don't expect any translated pages yet.
But if everything goes fine, I'm pretty sure the project will be able to finally start as pretended.
Also, since next year is Kirby's 25th anniversary, I hope we can complete the whole book by the end of 2017. :)

Or finish it never, which is much more likely.

Author:  MarxTrash [ October 27th, 2016, 5:00 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: The "Kirby 20th Anniversary Encyclopedia" Project. (HELP WANTED)

I'm sure we can at least be close to finishing the translation by the end of 2017 if everything goes well! Lots of people have agreed to help, so I'm not too worried!

Nope. This will be DEAD. Like Kirby: Cosmic Chaos. Or the godly Kirby GCN.

Author:  Nintendofan012 [ October 27th, 2016, 9:32 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: The "Kirby 20th Anniversary Encyclopedia" Project. (HELP WANTED)

Nope. I will finish this. Even if it takes more than a year.
The only way I can cancel this is if everyone (especially the translators) give up on the project.
But that's not the case.

Well... did you get anything done?

No, really. I'm curious.
