We translate webtoons, too!
In the past, we have worked on the translations for many manga titles in the traditional graphic novel format. For this format, all of the dialog, sound effects, signs, and more are translated into other languages in text files prior to being integrated into the artwork (DTP). Now, as webtoons and other digital formats become more popular, the translation and DTP work can be done directly on the data files. In this way, our vast experience has helped us to evolve with the times and meet our clients’ changing needs.
Active Gaming Media's Manga Translation
Multi-lingual staff translate manga directly from Japanese into their native language, or translate from their native language into Japanese. Many people from around the world who work with us are fans themselves of manga, games, and anime. This allows us to tailor teams to each manga’s genre and story, and provide a localization in line with what manga fans will expect, as well as seamless continuations of established series.
As Japan’s first company to specialize in game translation and localization, we have built up a wealth of knowledge and skills, both at an individual level and shared throughout the company. In terms of manga translation, our extensive skills and experience have contributed to the translation of over 150 titles.
Manga Translation Steps
If DTP is not included, we are able to handle any form of text file. Transcription on our side is also possible. If DTP is included, we are able to work with InDesign (.indd), Illustrator (.ai), Photoshop (.psd), Clip Studio Paint (.clip), and SAI (.sai) formats. We also accept .jpg and .png.
Manga translation rates are calculated based on page count. For webtoon manga, it is calculated based on the number of panels. The rates may vary depending on language pairs, volume, and deadlines. Depending on the volume, a free trial may also be provided. Feel free to make an inquiry.
