Translate48 is finally out of its beta! We now have our own original theme thanks to @aezea, giving our site a much more professional look. I hope the new layout will attract a bigger audience than ever before, when it was using simple images I stole from the HKT48 website leftover from the old days when it was only my own blog. The pink/orange-yellow/black theme was chosen to invoke the colors representative of AKB48, SKE48, NMB48 and HKT48. Unfortunately, there is no leopard print color, but I think the orange-yellow/black works for NMB48 as well or at least is a decent compromise. Perhaps the most eyecatching aspect you'll see is the center photo, which is actually a rotating banner. Right now there's only a Yuihan picture, but that's because Yuihan is aezea's oshimen lol. If you're an active translator (been active in the last month) please choose a photo to represent each girl you translate and then send the link to me via PM so that it can be added. Visitors to Translate48 will see a random photo each time they load a page, which should help shine a light on the girl you're translating. Speaking of active translators, I'll be posting an updated list of who is covering which member to the second post shortly, again based on translators active in the past month or so. Unfortunately, one or two translators have left us due to real life commitments, but we hope they'll be back when they're less busy. Members who have been freed up will be free to claim again. We are always recruiting new translators! Just as when we started, there is no exclusivity agreement required with Translate48; if you currently translate any Google+/mobile mail/blogs anywhere else (tumblr, other blogs, other sites) all we ask is that you cross post these to Translate48, which aims to aggregate as many translations as possible. We hope this will give your translations and the girls whose posts you're translating a bigger audience; even on days in which only one writer is active, we hit around ~200 views, and of course much more on days in which multiple translators are on or an important post comes out. I think our record was ~900 views in a single day? That's a lot of people, even with our old layout. So if you translate anything or know anyone that does, please consider joining our staff or ask them to do so! No one needs to be a Stage48 member either; all I need is your email to add you as a contributor. We hope this official launch will refresh and add even more interest to translations/individual members, which are always necessary in our fandom. Translate48 recently hit over 1000 translations too, so a big, big thank you to all the translators and all our readers too!
