Website Reader: Preferences


TA Replacement script (ErzoTL’s replacement script)

In version 8/16/2014 12:86, the replacement script by Erzotl with modifications has been integrated in VNR.  This will normalize JP dialogue and supposedly improves machine translation which was commonly used in the old TAHelper. [Wiki]

  1. Go to Preferences > Translation > Scripts
  2. You can check both J-J and J-E correction, it’s up to you.

  1. hey Sakimichi, do you know how to enable ErzoTL’s script in the latest VNR version? There is no Preferences/Translations/Scripts anymore … is it the Japanese-English translation script (by @riz) thingy now ?

    I’m asking because I’ve seen some people have really decent translations, but when I run mine it sucks >.<
