So the last few days after sharing one or two posts with you lovely folks you seem friendly enough to ask..

If you don't mind giving away a few trade secrets and explaining the scanlating process to me from raw to release.
I've been curious about it for a little while now i hope i'm not asking too much :?:

With a raw, you can:
- Translation
|-- Reading, translating and typing by yourself, if you know Japanese
|-- Finding a speed translation (like cnet's)
|-- Recruiting a translator

- Proof-read
|-- Checking grammar errors
|-- Let the translation smoother

- Edition
|-- Using a software like Photoshop
|-- Leveling, rotating, cleaning the text, redraw, etc...
|-- With a finished translation, you can begin to typesetting

- Quality check or Quality control
|-- Checking all of them again
|-- Saving and release

I'm missing?

Well to me a non-Eng-or-Jap native speaker the proof-read and translation are really pain in the a**. Sometimes you clearly understand what they are saying, but you hardly can translate it, or make it smooth.

Well, to my understanding, all scanlation start with:
-Buy a magazine/tankoubon -> Scan the chapter/volume -> Distribute the Raw (can skip this part) through internet

Then, it is divided into 2 paths that can be done at the same time here:
a. Translation: Translating -> Proofreading
b. Editting: Cleaning -> Leveling -> Redrawing

The two paths then join togehter in the third step:
-Typesetting -> Quality Checking

Then comes the final step: RELEASE

Not too complicated I think...
