Macross Chronicle Translations

Recommended Posts

A few of us have been rumbling about how a lot of the information in Macross Chronicle should be translated and posted here. Now, some of us know some japanese, and a lot of us are getting the Chronicle, so Mr March suggested that we all pool our efforts and post them here.

Obviously, some sections are going to be more prized than others, but if. say, you REALLY, REALLY want to translate the section on the Macross Frontier Trading Cards instead of the Variable Fighter Technology Sheeets, that's fine. It's all welcome.

But please, no partial translations. One sheet (i.e. both sides of a page) per entry. It makes it easier to link to. For example, if you're burning to translate the Mylene pages, do sheet 02a as one entry, 02b as another entry, and so on. LINKS WILL BE PLACED HERE AND IN THE NEXT ENTRIES (the "Table of Contents"). I also think it's best to concentrate on the first five issues, and move on once we've finished at least most of those. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me about it.

So, if you've translated something, please type it up and post it here. If there's something you want to translate, go ahead and do it. I'll keep a running tally of what's been done and what hasn't been done. With seven issues out already and a new one every other week, we've got a lot to do...so let's get started!

Drat... you beat me to it (creating this topic):

Conditions for readers:

* translations are take it or leave it

* expect some things do get lost in translation

* different translators will use different words for the same or similar terms and concepts

Conditions for translators:

* use Hepburn, and not Nihon-shiki or Kunrei-shiki!

* there are typos and perhaps other errors in Chronicles. These should be translated, and NOT fixed to make it consistant with other stuff in English in Macross; as it's possible those errors and typos are not mistakes at all!

My translation conditions:

* don't ask for scans. I live in Japan and don't want to end up in legal hotwater for something that is being actively published!

* I'll be using romanized names unless I know the commonly accepted Anglicized name. Exceptions are Zentraedi names. My goal in doing this translation is learning Japanese, not learning how to write what someone thinks a name or term from a fictional language should be in roman (English) letters. Therefore, ブリタイ is Buritai.

* If I'm unsure of the best term to use, I will include alternatives in [] (square brackets).

Translation Resources:

text (I don't rely on just one for a machine-code translation. I use all three, and compare the results):

Character Sheet

Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Citizen Sheet 01a: Lynn Minmay

In closed surroundings, the IDOL OF THE NEW GENERATION was born!

PERSONAL DATA

STATUS: Civilian

SEX: Female

BIRTHPLACE: Japan

The legendary singer who is called "The Galactic Empress of Song." Originally, she was well-known to the general populace in the civilian quarters of the Macross only as the poster girl for the Chinese Restaurant Nyan-Nyan. But after winning the ship-wide "Miss Macross Contest" and beginning her singing career, she became an oasis in the hearts of the citizens of the Macross, who had to show such strength in their long time on board the ship. Furthermore, when her voice reached the ears of the Zentradi soldiers, they had such an intense reaction that it has become commonplace to say that the Bodol main Fleet was destroyed by the power of her songs.

In her world tour after the end of Space War I, she gave courage to the many people still suffering during the Reconstruction. Still, during this time, it is said that she privately considered retiring from singing because of romantic problems with Hikaru ichijo, her close friend in the military.

[Picture Caption - being crowned Miss Macross] Although she was at first just another refugee on the Macross, when she won the Miss Macross Contest (an event celebrating the opening of the civilian broadcast network), she acheived her dream of debuting as a pro.

[Picture caption - Ep. 27 concert] Minmay's singing had a tremendous effect on the Zentradi soldiers, and the shipboard idol broke through all boundaries. During the final battle with the Bodol Main Fleet, humanity was victorious literally because of her singing.

Character Episode 01 - Meeting Hikaru

Before the Macross Launching Ceremony, Minmay came to South Ataria Island to vacation with her Aunt and Uncle, who owned a Chinese Restaurant there. But when Britai's Fleet arrived, she was swept away to a new threat. She was doing nothing when a U.N. Spacy VF-1D suddenly fell and half-demolished her family's shop. The pilot who had boarded the military plane was (at that time) a civilian: Hikaru Ichijo. The two exchanged their first words togetherand Minmay got the impression that Hikaru was "a nice guy." Later, once she reached refugee shelter, she realized that she had left behind a notice that she had qualified for an audition. She went to get it, but encountered a Zentradi Reguld. But Hikaru's VF-1D and Roy Focker's VF-1J* dashed in and rescued her without her coming to any harm. Yet, during mid-air combat, the left arm of the VF-1D (which was protecting her) broke off. Minmay valiantly swam through the air, and was pulled safely into the fighter by a hair's breadth. Buty even here, she didn't know what lay in store.

[Picture caption - Minmay in the VF-1D, twirling her hair and looking thoughtful] Swimming in mid-air during a battle like some kind of circus performer, Minmay lost one of her nine lives that day. Immediately after, she fell into a state of panic, not over her safety, but over her disheveled hair.

Character Episode 02 - Escape from the Macross

As soon as they were safely inside the Macross, Minmay and Hikaru leave the ship in Hikaru's fan racer. Hikaru wants to leave not only for his own sake, but because he had originally told Minmay that he would get her back safely to her Uncle's.

[Picture Caption - Minmay and Hikaru in the fan racer, in space] When they try to leave the Macross, it executes a space fold, stranding the fan racer in outer space. Hikaru is impatient, but Minmay is entranced by the beauty of the stars.

Character Episode 03 - Survival for Just Two People

Somehow, the duo gets back inside the ship, but they find themselves shut inside an uninhabited, closed-off section. While looking for an escape route, they create a makeshift shower, and although she's worried that Hikaru might be watching, Minmay shows that she's gradually beginning to trust him.

[Picture Caption - Minmay in the shower] Minmay in the shower that Hikaru hastily made. Immediately before this scene, she deliberately shreiked in order to tease him, a practical joke which shows the side of her that really likes him.

[Fashion Picture Captions]

[Picture 1: Minmay's dress from episodes 1 to 4] The outfit she wore on the day of the Macross Launching Ceremony. The short-sleeved, one-piece dress with the long-sleeved turtleneck blouse gives it a layered style.

[Picture 2: the shirt from episode 4] Clothes from the survival time in the closed-off section of the Macross. A work-shirt that Hikaru had left in the fan racer.

[Picture 3: from episode 8] The pajamas that Minmay was wearing on the night of her birthday. It's just cream-colored cloth, but the heart marks (and the arrow going through them) on the pockets give it a love-filled feeling.

[Picture 4: the pink "Mr. Lingerie" dress] A cute one-piece with a somewhat large collar. The dress that Minmay wore in the Miss Macross Contest, she bought it with Hikaru in a boutique on board the Macross.

[Picture 5: Minmay with Hikaru's helmet] The U.N. Spacy helmet Minmay wore in the fan racer because hikaru ordered her to. It's a little bit big for her.

[Picture 6: Minmay in the shower] During the survival period. Minmay in the shower that Hikaru made. Even after getting wet, the little curls in her hair still "keep."

[Picture 7: Minmay with a handkerchief on her head] This is also from the survival time in the closed-off section of the Macross. For the make-believe wedding with Hikaru, she made a veil out of his handkerchief.

*Gubaba here. Okay...I'm abiding by Sketchley's rule (which I think is a good one) to translate what the Chronicle actually says rather than what we would expect it to say. But still...this is obviously an error. Focker has a VF-1S, not a 1J.

[Whew...that was...um...less than edifying, wasn't it? I think I'll stay away from Minmay's "B" page for a bit, but I'm not sure what I'm going to tackle next. It'll either be Sheryl, or the Timeline, or one of the History pages (either Sharon Apple or Shao Pai Long).]

I think Gubaba you should link the translation posts to the first post as an index.

Well...the first post is what we need. The links are in the next three posts (the "Table of Contents," as it were).

Look for "Lynn Minmay" in blue. That's the link.

As more people (at least, I hope it won't be Sketchley and I doing the whole thing...) put entries in here, I'll link to them from the Table of Contents, and I'll also update the Contents every other week (probably on Fridays, since that's usually when I get my issues).

Gubaba (and others working on this project) - can you post a list of translations that you've worked on/completed but not typed, as well as what you are interested in doing next?

Regarding the next sheets I'm interested in:

Major:

Variable fighter 1b

Destroid 2a

Minor:

worldguide 17a Macross 7 fleet

History M7 02a Varuta Martial attack

mechanic SDF:M Zentraedi 10a Factory Satellite

mechanic M7 UNS 9a Macross 7 Fleet

mechanic D7 UNS 01a VF-5000

I think I'll be alternating between major and minor interests; as all the same stuff will make me go crazy! However, if anyone feels like starting one of those in my minor list, please feel free to do so.

I have translated very little, but I've looked closely at a lot of the pages with an eye to translating them.

Currently, my major interests:

The Timeline Sheets

The Sharon Apple, Shao Pai Long, and Minmay Debut History Sheets

The Protodeviln World Guide Sheet

SDFM and F Character Sheets

Minor interests:

M7 Character Sheets

The Making Sheets

The Song Sheets (I can probably bang those out in a weekend).

Looks like our interests fit together nicely, doesn't it? At least we won't be fighting over who does what...

Fellow MW member cyde01, who has done about a dozen translations for my website, has agreed to give a shot at some Chronicle work, as his time permits. I've given him the SNN Valkyrie page to translate.

Yes...we have ONE WHOLE PAGE! Yowza! Ain't no stoppin' us now, huh? :p

Actually, the Minmay page was easier than I was expecting...it's just that the fashion parade got a little tedious. I'm already dreading the Mylene pages.

Look at it this way, it has to start somewhere. The Macross Mecha Manual wasn't built in a day :)

Even if all the fans who can translate Japanese produce only what amounts to the translation of one page in English per issue, we should consider that a major achievement. Don't daunt yourselves with visions of the work load. Just prioritize what you think is most important and translate that. Use some discretion. No one can expect any more from this than what we ultimately get. I'm certainly happy with every word; it's one more we didn't have before.

Since we're on the subject, and if anyone knows, what is the position of the Macross Compendium regarding the translation of newly published Macross materials, such as the Macross Chronicle? Will Egan be adding more content? Azrael, any word on this?

i will gladly help after i take up japanese reading courses. let me get back to you in a year or so. :p

but, hey, i'm all here for the occasional moral support, and to regularly remind you that "YOU GUYS ROCK!!"

Now, isn't that WAY better than me contributing translations? :D

Cool. Every little bit helps, as the old woman said as she pissed in the sea. ^_^

Too true...and it's something I often forget. I tend to be a perfectionist with stuff like this...I want it to come out perfect and complete the first time. Which of course never happens. So thanks for the reminder.

Of course, I could just be a real jerk about it and translate only the Basara and Ranka sheets, and then do nothing else until they decide to print something about Kaifun. :p

Since we're on the subject, and if anyone knows, what is the position of the Macross Compendium regarding the translation of newly published Macross materials relevant to the Compendium's content? Will Egan be adding more content? Azrael, any word on this?

Azrael has asked me one or two Chronicle questions, to double check his work. So I think the Compendium is including a lot of the new information (such as the fact the OTEC joined with a few other companies and became General Galaxy).

Unfortunately, he also found what appears to be a big flub, in that the Timeline Sheet says work started on the Variable Fighters in 2002, but the Technology Sheet says it started in 2001. I think the 2001 is a misprint, but then we go back to Sketchley's rule about mistake-that-might-not-be-mistakes.

If one source lists a date of 2001 but another source says 2002, include them both with a footnote for each source. It's easy, simple and headache free. Those problems can always be worked out later and if you've already identified the error, posting it up might encourage readers to comment and/or offer information to correct it.

Egan hasn't indicated to me whether or not he is getting the Chronicles. My checking of info against the Compendium has made me guess there isn't much editing to do on certain areas. When I looked at the VF-5000 sheets against the Compendium, the Compendium actually got most of the info already. I found most of it to be the same with the YF-21 sheets vs. Compendium. I'm not even gonna look at the VF-1 until the Chronicle is done with it... <_< The timeline was also filled in fairly well. The Chronicle goes into more history and minute details, but I don't think Egan really expanded much on that since I believe he was writing from a general POV, which is the stance I've taken on the Compendium. Egan has been expanding on stuff I've pulled from various publications I have however.

I'm working on the World sheet for Eden, as time permits, but I've only done a prelim scan of it, mostly of the indigenous species. I've done some prelim work on the SNN Valk, the Fan Racer, and other various areas. But I'm really jumping around just doing fact-checking and looking for info that we don't have right now. I've also review the Basara and Ranka sheets. :p I'm previewing the Q-Rau sheet right now and the Sheryl sheet next.

Wow, it's exciting to see our fellow MW members to do such a huge project. Gogogo, everyone, I will support you guys... by keep on cheer up you guys...

(Yeah, I don't have the copy myself, and my japanese wasn't really the best. But I can help if you guys ever meet a translation problem of difficult kanji)

He's been PMing me as well.

I've glanced at both and I've got the impression that the two events are different (actual start vs. official start, or something like that). I'm currently in the midst of the Tech sheet, getting near the discrepency...

Unfortunately, he also found what appears to be a big flub, in that the Timeline Sheet says work started on the Variable Fighters in 2002, but the Technology Sheet says it started in 2001. I think the 2001 is a misprint, but then we go back to Sketchley's rule about mistake-that-might-not-be-mistakes.

Egan hasn't indicated to me whether or not he is getting the Chronicles. My checking of info against the Compendium has made me guess there isn't much editing to do on certain areas. When I looked at the VF-5000 sheets against the Compendium, the Compendium actually got most of the info already. I found most of it to be the same with the YF-21 sheets vs. Compendium. I'm not even gonna look at the VF-1 until the Chronicle is done with it... <_< The timeline was also filled in fairly well. The Chronicle goes into more history and minute details, but I don't think Egan really expanded much on that since I believe he was writing from a general POV, which is the stance I've taken on the Compendium. Egan has been expanding on stuff I've pulled from various publications I have however.

Fair enough. I agree a lot of what the Chronicles has printed is just recycled information. In fact, Egan's website may be much more definitive than what is being offered in the Chronicles, since Egan included so many facts from dozens of different Macross publications to fill out each description. I'm not sure if the Chronicles are being researched as thoroughly as the Compendium has been.

But even in spite of those reasons, I have noticed valuable facts in English from the Chronicles that appear new to us and the Compendium. For example, the Oberth Class Destroyer is given an official length of 200 meters (I'll correct my website in the next update) and I believe Hikaru's Fan Racer is given a weight of 0.6 tons. There is also some weird statistic for a dimension on 500 km for the Factory Satellite (not sure yet what it means). And I believe it was sketchley who pointed out the ship counts for the Macross 7 fleet. While these are not major revelations, from my perspective, these are very valuable facts for mecha profiles. Such information helps fill the profiles with more complete information, which is very important since Macross lacks a lot of detail for the vehicle descriptions.

Character Sheet

Macross F: Citizen 03A: Sheryl Nome

Page One

The COOL BEAUTY who has been dubbed "The Galactic Fairy!"

PERSONAL DATA

Status - Civilian

Sex - Female

Birthplace - Galaxy Fleet

A 17-year-old girl from the Galaxy Fleet, Sheryl is the incredibly popular recording artist known as the "Galactic Fairy." She has never received the technology known as "Implants" (which are widespread on Galaxy), making her something of a rarity. She is the current top idol, having spent a record-breaking 17 weeks at the #1 spot on the galactic chart. She was struck with misfortune, though, when the Vajra attacked the Frontier Fleet during the final show of her galactic tour there. Soon after, all communications with the Galaxy Fleet abruptly ceased, and Sheryl was forced to stay with Frontier Fleet after the end of her tour.

It is said that after this, she got wrapped up in a love triangle with the "Super Dimension Cinderella," Ranka Lee (who Sheryl had become acquainted with both in public and private) and S.M.S. pilot Alto Saotome. Always overflowing with confidence and arrogant in her words and actions (even in private), it is still rumored that before her debut, she lived a life of dire poverty. Perhaps because of this, singing with the mind of a pro and an upfront sense of pride, her attitude and beauty, both physical and vocal, continue to entrance countless people throughout the galaxy.

[Picture Caption] Striving for the top in all things has led to Sheryl perhaps havng a little too much self-confidence. Her haughty manner can make her seem something of a little demon.

[Picture Caption] Despite her elegant appearance, Sheryl is determined in her thinking. She will work to turn a loss into a win no matter how many times she has to try.

Page Two

Character Episode 01 - The Frontier Concert

Due to the grandstanding of Altyo, a member of the flight team, an accident happened to Sheryl on stage. Although she was angry, she used her quick wit to reverse the situation and entrance the audience with her courage. Later, the same concert was cancelled during the performance because of the Vajra attack.

[Picture Caption] In spite of the accident, Sheryl still brought the performance to a grand climax. This was Sheryl and Alto's first meeting.

Character Episode 02 - Meeting Ranka

The day after the Vajra attack, Sheryl realized that she had lost one of her earrings. The concert video gave her a clue as to their whereabouts, and she placed a request to the military to meet with Alto at his residence. However, realizing that the request would go nowhere, she struck out into the city on her own (after leaving a message for her manager, Grace), where she met Ranka, who was singing one of Sheryl's own songs. Ranka, who was a big Sheryl fan and wanted to be a singer, made a good impression on Sheryl, and Sheryl revealed her own identity by singing.

[Picture Caption] After getting lost, Sheryl heard a singing girl pass by. This girl was Ranka before her debut.

[Picture Caption] Sheryl looking at Ranka with kindness in her eyes. At that time, she never dreamed that Ranka would one day become her main rival.

Character Episode 03 - The Shelter Incident

While Sheryl was chatting with Ranka, the man she had been looking for, Alto, coincidentally arrived. However, at that time, the Vajra attacked the Frontier Fleet again, and the trio quickly escaped to a shelter. Finally, they were saved due to Grace's quick thinking, but Sheryl showed her determination of spirit in an escape attempt.

[Picture Caption] In the shelter, Alto quite accidentally saw Sheryl naked, which enraged her. The two ended up having their first violent argument.

[Picture Caption - six shots of Sheryl's face] Sheryl's slender, regular features are suited well to the words "beautiful woman." One the one hand, her appearance looks likes innocence in full bloom, but on the other her words and actions can be alarmingly blunt. Perhaps the gap between them is one part of her charm.

[Picture Caption - full body shot] The outfit Sheryl wore when entering her dressing room before the Froniter Tenkumon Hall concert. The beret, the one-piece that gives an impression of being a long dress, and the boots together have an atmosphere of being neat and smart, but also active.

[inset] Sheryl's Earrings

The teardrop-style earrings that Sheryl wears. The violet jewel is an unknown crystal called "Fold Quartz." While it is said that Fold Quartz makes possible a leap forward in Fold Navigations and Communications, its connection to the Vajra must also be pointed out. The ones Sheryl has are extremely important to her, and when she lost one of them, she hurriedly checked the concert video to confirm that it had ended up in Alto's hands. Moreover, she went searching around the city for him in spite of her tight schedule. Later, when at the end of Sheryl's next encounter with Alto, she absent-mindedly forgot to mention the earring, but Alto (who was being interested in Sheryl) used it as an excuse for going to see her again.

[Picture Caption] Sheryl has long hair, but to show off her earrings, she often styles her hair so that her right ear is visible.

Okay, someone turn Sheryl over; she's done (until the publishers of Macross Chronicle see fit to present us with her "B" page, that is).

Next up: No question about it, I'm doing the Zentradi World Guide Sheet.

After that, I might do the Protodeviln World Guide Sheet, one of the History Sheets (Minmay or Sharon Apple), or start in on the Timeline Sheets.

Or I could just be a jerk about it by translating the Basara pages and then calling it quits. :p

Jeez All I can say is that we need to get a english verion of this mag published of us english speacking fans to be sold in comic book/hobby shops.

It'd be nice, wouldn't it?

Quite frankly, the only reason I'm translating it is because I really, really want to read it, and this seems to be the only way to do so. <_<

In the future, though, I may stay away from the character pages, since they don't seem to be telling us anything we don't already know. World Guide, History, and Timeline seem to be where the real action is.

That said, the first article I imported from the old Macross Compendium to the new one was Minmay, so I wanted the first page of the Chronicle that I translated to be Minmay as well.

And I did Sheryl just because I was worried that someone else would grab her before I got there.

And, of course, you can bet that when they get around to doing the Nanase pages, that will take priority over whatever else I happen to be working on. ^_^

And this afternoon, I sat down and skimmed the World Guide Zentradi page, and it doesn't seem too tough. I hope it'll take me less than a week to do.

(And I've still got to finish the Nyan Tra liner notes...and Miss DJ...and Macross Love (which not difficult, but rather tedious) and, of course, the prologue to Misa Hayase: White Reminiscences continues to thoroughly kick my butt.)

Those and the technology sheets sound like good pages on which to focus ;):lol:

Quiet, you, or I'll only translate the Mylene fashion parade and the explanation of Ranka's hair. :p

Anyway, Sketchley seems to like doing the Technology sheets, so I'm happy to leave them to him. It looks like he and I might have to fight over certain History and World Guide sheets, but as long as I get to do the Jammingbirds page, I'm happy.
