Going for the widest audience doesn't apply in fan translations; they're not doing it for us. They're doing it for their own community.

Yeah, but at least your post explains what you're trying to say in a coherent manner with a supporting argument.

He questioned the reasons why someone would translate to a non-English language, in an extremely rude, flame-baiting way.

In response, people are telling him possible reasons for translating into a non-English language.

I don't see what's so butthurt about their responses. If they're being curt about it in their replies, it's probably because they see no reason to show any politeness to an obviously rude post.

That said, his first point would be implying something along the lines of "more people can read it if it's English", completely disregarding the fact that translating into their native language would yield a higher quality production, which is possibly what the group translating is concerned with. This point is made as if he did not care about translation quality, or assumed that every translator ("Why the hell would anyone") out there does not care.

His second point would be implying "Japanese to Vietnamese to English yields a low quality translation likely filled with errors" which is regarding translation quality. (Unless, of course, he has something against Vietnamese. That would be another reason to be "not terribly enthused"; but this is unlikely.)

This shows one of two things:
1. He is incapable of seeing his own contradiction and connecting the dots to form a semi-coherent line of thought and/or has a double standard when it comes to this issue (of translation quality).
2. He can't be assed to bother and thought he'd just troll the thread and discourage any potential translators. Since it's fairly certain that the translating group isn't going to be reading this thread, he's obviously not expecting an official answer from them about their motives.

As pbsaffran says, there are people out there who quite frankly don't give a damn about you or your personal language preferences. Even beginning to assume that they considered English as a possibility or English as a superior possibility is just arrogant.

aninga: You are joking, right? Mangagamer signed a deal with Navel already so most of these VNs will be probably released by them.

I have a hex editor, so I can potentially localize any title! Go ahead and add me to the list for every game ever published!
