Hi there!

That's the deal: I've translating Flaky Pastry into spanish for a spanish webcomic community since 2009.

Here you can see the translation: http://flakypastry.subcultura.es

Of course, is not a profesional translation, so is not as perfect as I'd like it to be, but I can assure you I work very hard to make a good translation.

So... why am I telling you this after so long? Well, because I am... soooo... lazy... xD. No, seriously, I'vre tried to contact Fallingard a few times in the past, but he didn't answer me Sad .

So I continued with the translation, because I really love this comic, and I want to share it with spanish-speaking people who don't know english.

Needless to say, I made no profit at all from this, Fallingard is mentioned and theres plenty of links to his webs. Oh, and the translation itself is under a Creative Commons license.

I have to say that Flaky Pastry has been very well received among spanish readers, and I have a really good feedback.

Well, I hope you people like this and, Fallingard, if you read this, please, contact me!

Hi! And welcome to the forum!

I'll be honest with you, why didn't I answer right away when you e-mailed me about the translation? .... Well, I'm lazy Embarassed

That and also I'm a little ambivalent about the fan-translation thing, and I couldn't quite make up my mind if I should say yes or no, and thus I just let you continue without saying anything XD That's pretty much what happened with the guy doing a russian fan-translation, too. Sad But he didn't give up either, and attempted to contact me later as well. Soooo... I guess I'll tell you what I told him...

Yes, go ahead! I'm still not sure how I feel about it, buuut y'know... I am getting hits from it, after all. And it's always nice to know people out there like my work enough to put in the effort of translating it. Croissant!
