FAQ


HOW ACCURATE ARE YOUR TRANSLATIONS?
It’s nearly impossible to carry all of one’s meaning in the intended amount of detail in another language. So we do our best. But because we are not all native-born Korean or Koreans living in Korea right now, there are certain idioms, phrases, and modern expressions that are unfamiliar to us. In which case, we use reliable Korean sites such as Naver and Daum to help us out. Even still, there may be slight discrepancies but not enough to stray from the general message. Please know that we give our best though.

CAN I USE YOUR TRANSLATIONS?
For translating into another language:
Yes, just make sure to credit us. Either by leaving a link to our page or original translation. for example “k-e by @bts_trans”.
For video compilations:
Yes, however, please leave our logo as it appears in the video. Along with a credit to BTS-Trans & Bangtan Subs in the description box, preferably with a link to our social media account(s) and/or the original video(s). We understand if linking to the original videos isn't being done, since it can be quite difficult when using lots of videos. However, it's still our most preferred method.
To share:
If it’s personal, for example to your friend via a message, then yes please go ahead and don’t worry about the credits. However, when, for example, sharing a funny clip - or how much you like a certain part of their lyrics to a bigger audience, please credit us by linking to our page, or to the original translation.
DO NOT REPOST/UPLOAD OUR VIDEOS ONTO SECONDARY WEBSITES. Thank you.

CAN YOU HELP ME LEVEL UP ON THE FANCAFE?
No. Sadly, taking out the fancafe level up questions is forbidden so we can’t post a tutorial. It is clearly stressed that level-up questions should not be taken out and translated, and taking out any media for members of the fancafe cannot be translated either. Rule-breaking has gone noticed by BigHit because of previous misuse, and thus their rules are getting more difficult. Do not ask us to help you with fancafe, you will be ignored.

CAN YOU TRANSLATE ___ FOR ME?
Unfortunately, personal fan requests that are not released BTS material will not be fulfilled. We cannot guarantee they will be done on time, in addition to it being unfair if we selectively choose to help some fans and not others.

HOW MANY STAFF MEMBERS DO YOU HAVE? ARE ANY OF THEM KOREAN?
Currently our staff is around 10+ but our staff are not available 24/7 due to personal commitments such as school, work, etc. They are composed of admins, secretaries, Korean/Japanese/Mandarin translators, timers and typesetters from all around the world. Many of our Korean to English translators are Korean, but a few have learned Korean as a secondary language.

WHEN WILL ____ BE SUBBED?
Our team tries to sub whatever we can as soon as possible. Projects vary according to its content, so full-length videos take longer to finish. Not everyone is available to work as soon as something is released, in addition to time zone differences. There are many steps to subbing a video fully, so all we ask is patience.
