sophinisba: Wil and Ma from Saving Face watching TV (saving face by glass_icarus)
From: [personal profile] sophinisba
Hi! I'm interested in reading the Saving Face fic Yum Cha. It's almost all in English but there are a few Chinese words - mostly character names and food words - that I could use help with. Can I email you when I'm getting started?

From: [personal profile] springgreen
Definitely! Er, I haven't watched the movie yet, so I don't know... do you know if the words are Canto or Mandarin? Just because "Yum Cha" is Canto...

Eep, I don't know. The characters are Mandarin speakers but there might be a bit of Cantonese for the food.

No prob! I will watch the movie soon and try to see what I can catch, and check the fic out as well. I can help with the Mandarin, and for Canto I could probably ask my mom, but my pronunciation is really terrible =(.

Finally watched the movie! Also realized why I got so confused... the fic says Wil speaks Canto for a bit, but in the movie, everything's basically in Mainland-accented Mandarin with a few bits in Shanghainese.

But yes, I can definitely do the Mandarin for you, and hopefully without too much of a terrible accent. I suspect the food terms will remain in Canto because it's dim sum, and I will try and ask my mom about those. Eh, just warning that my accent is terrible!

Hello, I am sorry to let you know I haven't recorded this yet and probably won't get to it in time for this challenge. :( I really appreciate your offer to help (and going to the trouble of watching the movie) though. I still hope I can record it another time.

Not a problem, and good luck if you decide to do it some other time! (Feel free to ping me for help if you'd like to then as well.)

From: [personal profile] luzula
Hi! This is not for the chromatic podfic challenge, but I figured I could at least ask if you wanted to help out anyway: I'm recording a Firefly fic, and I wonder if you could help me with the pronunciation of a couple of phrases in it.

springgreen: (Default)
From: [personal profile] springgreen
Hi! Yes, I definitely can! I think Firefly is kind of odd in that the random Chinese dialogue is in Mandarin, but the ship announcements are in Canto... so I can help with the former but am clueless re: the latter.

Dialect(s)/language(s): Korean
Relevant information: I'm not fully fluent in the language, but my listening comprehension is better than my production and I have a little familiarity with the linguistics of Korean. I speak with an American accent, but I can recognize properly pronounced Seoul dialect.

From: [personal profile] pulchritude
Contact info: [personal profile] pulchritude
Dialect(s)/language(s): Standard Mandarin, Changsha topolect of Chinese
Relevant information: I speak Standard Mandarin with a Hunan accent - Chinese friends describe that accent as sounding rather 'musical', because of the way I let the morphemes lilt into each other rather than having them separated rigidly, the way it is typically done in Standard Mandarin.

I am on the low end of the intermediate level when it comes to the Changsha topolect (part of the Xiang topolect/dialect/language family of Chinese). I am better at listening than speaking. I'm not a native speaker, but it is the native language of the place I was born and raised, and my mother is a native speaker.

I can beta Japanese. I'm not native, but I've lived 20 years outside Osaka. While I can actively avoid obvious things like "wakaran" for "wakaranai", I do have a Kansai accent. I use Audacity at work and can record things for you if needed.

I doubt it'll be called for, but there are chromatic folks everywhere--

Contact info: [personal profile] thistleingrey
Dialect(s)/language(s): (southern) German
Relevant information: though I don't speak fluently anymore, my ear's better than my tongue. Said ear can handle both standard hochdeutsch and, to some extent, mid-to-southern dialectal usage. (One parent is a native speaker of schwäbisch; my accent when speaking hochdeutsch is ineluctably colored by this.)

ETA to be clear: given the stated "fics in non-English languages associated with chromatic cultural groups," I'm not expecting a whole story in German, but bits of dialogue or names are plausible as well as in keeping with this overall project.
