StolenTranslations is a one-person hentai translation project headed by me, Torsten Ostgard. I have been editing single images, H-manga, doujinshi, CG sets and more since 2010.
There have always been people working to translate hentai manga and doujinshi, but few, if any, who translate single images. I aim to change that. As I know no Japanese myself, I take translations from other sources (hence the jocular “stolen” bit) and place English text where the original Japanese used to be so that English speakers can fully enjoy the image. That’s it. I will never put watermarks on my images, nor include obnoxious credit pages. My goal is to share images, not to stroke my ego.
At the end of every month, I pack all the images I have edited that month into a RAR (the “incremental release”) and release it alongside another RAR that contains all the images I have ever edited (the “batch release”). There are a few decensored images included in the complete releases from a time before I realized decensoring was a waste of my time. However, I like those images enough to acknowledge them as my work and include them in my releases.
My focus on single images does not preclude edits of larger works, though. If an H-manga or doujin has been translated and either not typeset at all or typeset poorly, I will make sure it gets a proper release. I have no qualms about redoing substandard work.
Feel free to repost these images anywhere you see fit; if I did not want these images to be shared with the world, I would not post them online. My only request is that you please refrain from reposting single images within two days of the post on the blog; this gives me additional time to check with fresh eyes for typographical and editing errors. Please do not upload the images to Gelbooru on your accord; I will handle that myself. As a rule of thumb, when the image appears on Gelbooru, it’s probably fine to repost elsewhere.
I sometimes post with the tripcode “Torsten !OSTGARD9Js” on select boards on 4chan, though I dislike using it; anonymous posting is one of the cornerstones of imageboard culture. The tripcode is only used when my identity would matter.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
