Actually the preview links at first were for machine translators, yet the previews done by me are somewhat different as I do know Japanese and can translate simple sentences by my own, I usually still rely on dictionaries and machine translations when it comes to harder sentences, but again I use two machine translators and 8 dictionaries while other machine translators used only one or two at most.. Mostly google transl. or babelfish, both of which are utter crap.

Free online translation tools are bad and they should not be used even for the previews...never.

The previews are right now a speedy translation but as close to real translations as possible.

Not all B-T translators are japanese ones - a lot are chinese ones and there is a risk that chinese version would be missing few sentences (it sometimes does) and can sometimes be inaccurate.

I really agree. I've seen one of the online translator at work once...Not a single sentense had the right meaning...

atlas generally do a better job than any online translator but thats normally after hours of tinkering with its dictionary and grammar database.

By the way i would love to help bakatsuki with the translation except i ve been so busy these days. but i might have some free time in the future during the summer so if you guys need a new translator or editor i can probably help. I m a chinese by birth but i have a bit of japanese thanks to my parents and the fact i was born in japan. so i will probably need to work off chinese copies of whatever it needs to be translated since i can understand those better.

that has nothing to do with native Indians they are completely different people and i know people that would take offense of that. African Americans they are as their name imply- are from Africa and the Indians we are talking about are the people native to North America before European colonization.

Saito and Louise, in the novel at this moment, are not even in the academy.
The way Colbert gets injured and the whole fight against that pyromaniac is different too.
Maybe he'll come back in the 3rd season. If he stays dead, they simply have to change stuff and make things alright.

they need colbert alive for a 3rd season. Too many things won't make sense or won't even take place if he stayed "dead".
