Fan translation

From Sanrio Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Fan translations or fansubs are unofficial translations of media not officially released in the language it is fan translated. It could also be an alternative translation to an official translation. In the context of comics, there is a related term known as scanlation which involves scanning a manga or comic, and re-releasing it in an edited form, in another language.

Legality

Fan translation is an argument for understanding/communication of works which would otherwise be obscure due to a language barrier, as well as documentation and fair use (in a limited form); however, reproducing the entirety of copyrighted works in another language may be seen as a form of copyright violation.
