    Just read God of Music and Coder Lee Yongho rn and i really want to know what will happen next even the gist of it but google translate cannot translate the words in the frame. It would be a great help if you know a way. Thanks. :)))))

    Please do not tread down the path of MTL. You will bleed your eyes out before you can even read the first sentence

    Iirc there are some programs that can do image to text. But theyre usually never completely accurate so sometimes the characters will be wrong. So you either have to manually go through and fix the errors and then mtl. Or just learn to type korean, type it all out in a word doc, and then mtl

    I always thought people willing to MTL either have incredible endurance or having nothing better to do in their life.

    I thought they lost their faith in humanity and took the path of hell even if they knew what was awaiting them. I tried once but I stopped after one half chapter..........it's hell

    Sometimes I binge read mtls, but only when an arc is going unbearably slow.

    I'm 90% sure people who MTL are masochists and that google is secretly a sadist getting off on their misfortune.

    Most times, reading MTL takes longer than just waiting for the proper translation :)
    Your eyes will become cross eyed and your brain tied up worse than a pretzel trying to figure out what the heck the MTL is trying to say.
    But if you like this kind of torture then enjoy :p

    MTL'ing isn't really that hard to read though o.o, Since I thought if you read for a long time you develop in a way that your eye spots important words and then combine it to form sentences that are easy to understand. The only problem I have with MTL'ing is the names and how ridiculous they are. If you want an easy place to read MTL go to lnmtl,com there's plenty of novels that are interesting to read. Anyways you'll get used to MTL sooner or later.

    Once I tried to read a MTL novel... my eyes bleed for a few minutes and I couldn't read a normal text because I was used to the MTL and had to read twice before understanding something (probably because English isn't my first language).

    These are the sort of threads that make me never want to MTL... Even though it's not that hard (japanese and Chinese for me at least (actually tried)) I wish you luck on trying to MTL Korean! o7

    One thing before I say anything: MTL and Korean do not go together at all.

    That being said, Munpia (where the raws are hosted) is the one site where the raws are protected better than a christian female's virginity. You'd have a better time trying to hack Steam.

    Thank you, guys!! I will try LiF3tim3's suggestion. If it still won't work, then I really have to give up MTLing GoM. T.T

    I've Survived MTL for a long time and i got some skill about reading some alien shit
    still worth it though as i can get the stories even if it just around 60-80%, if you really couldn't bear to wait that long for translated chaps, except if you want to learn korean and another language
