Well, new members often don't know about the biography or don't know where to get it, and there's a link to it in this thread. That's why I stickied it. If there was a better thread 'showcasing' the link to the full biography, I'd have stickied that instead. But I don't think there is?

OMFG!!......FRECKLEGIRL!!!! U HAVE BONNIE PINK IN UR SIGGIE! :O
UR RELATED TO THE SHIINA RINGO INTERVIEW! (kinda) But seriously, someone finish that interview. I wanna know if Shena kills the Radio guy for insulting her in such a stupid, assholish way. The way someone translated the parts "I'll show U" and "Just U wait" make her sound like some crazy person. =3=

I think a partial translation that still took someones effort is better than no translation at all (ne ?) whether the translator localized it in terms of how the dialogue flows you still get the gist of it.

I really want a transltaion! Even if it isn't true, it's probably a fun read.

I have a copy of this and translating it is sort of a dream project of mine. When my Japanese is good enough, I can't wait to actually be able to read it, let alone translate it.

Don't we have a lot of people here who can translate this? Each one can take a paragraph, a page, and translate it, and someone put everything together...

I speak portuguese, understand english (I don't dominate it yet) and the few words I know in japanese are only by the sound, so I'm not able to translate kanji. =/


Pleeeeeeeeeeeease, let's do something about this biography translation \o/

(ah, and all the links in this thread are broken)

I'm not sure if you haven't been paying attention or what but everyone who could translate either doesn't have a copy of the book (me), is too busy to tackle this, or their Japanese is not quite up to speed for book translation (which is pretty difficult).

If you want it to be translated, you can start by providing scans of the book or even going so far as to mail copies to those who can translate. But until then, no progress is going to be made.

At this point I can read and comprehend pretty well, but translation would be very time-consuming. It took me over an hour to do each of the songs on the latest TJ single; it would probably take at least twice that to do a single page of the Ringo autobio. Still, when I'm back in L.A. at the end of the summer I'll pull it off the shelf and see how easy it might be.
