I don’t know what to make of the apology. But since appropriate measures have been taken like taking that Kara video off their channel, I am fine with that since my translator’s interest is taken care of. What happens with their internal business is their problem. I usually let this kind of things go but I just had to take action with this. Even if this creates antis or hating on me, I don’t care or think this is a wrong move to blog this. I believe this case is closed.
The following is cuttiesgirl/SuEuniee point of view
hey. its firstname.lastname@example.org also known as SuEuniee
i’m one of the translators for coolsmurf.
i actually can’t believe alvin and i have to put up with this kind of crap… and that he’s getting some antis out of it also…
he and i did the write thing… and we had to take that measure to get our credits or an apology… but they didnt even do that (technically) but just got that video out. i guess it hurt their pride to put a credit to coolsmurf and SuEuniee for the damn translations
he didnt fight for only himself, but for me as well.
translating and subbing the videos (and timing) takes a long time and it gets us aggravated when they copy it without proper credit.
yes translations are free for everyone and we do it for people who need it, but since its free, its definitely required that they CREDIT us since they can’t pay (:
if you got further issues, you can deal with me at email@example.com thank you (:
PS- thanks to people who are supporting alvin.
he’s doing a great job<3
What Had Happened
Have had issues with this person/team or whatever. But things never change do they? I subbed the Kara Pretty Girl music video yesterday morning with the translation from a friend of mine. Everything appeared to be ok.
Video Has Since Been Removed
And a few hours later, simplyyazn from that team seems to have type out word for word with grammatical errors and transplanted it onto the same video, claiming that the translation was done by him/her. And stop copying the format of how I list my files, etc. It’s so copycatish. No ethics whatsoever.
Can’t believe I am wasting my time doing this crap.
