People having an issue with the .lat and other sites

Postby Big-Will » Wed Oct 07, 2020 6:42 pm

I'm moving all threads about that issue to Site Bugs. Please start any new threads there. They don't belong in General SP Discussion, Character Discussion, Feedback, Off Topic Discussion, etc. Hopefully the techs can fix the issue or explain why localization is necessary when fans from all over the world want the episodes in English.

(Most often, it's because they don't understand the meaning of some English phrases, as there's no equivalent in other languages, and localization attempts to fix that)

If that's true, it was better before I can choose whether to watch the episodes in Spanish or in English

Cool, don't care about localization, I'd rather have the option of watching it in English. I don't want to be forced to watch the dubbed version, at this point you guys are only shooting yourselves in the foot. Bring back English to South Park Brazil!

Why you guys felt the need to make us watch South Park in Spanish? not everyone in here wants to see dubbed shows. Please bring back the option to choose language

Ohh thanks goodness I wasn't the only one, I don't like the Spanish dub since most of the jokes get completely butchered for the sake of translation, I hope this get fixed soon

The decision to localize the site and to remove the original audio was blatantly stupid and out of touch. Clearly was made by someone who does not know anything about the show's fanbase.

If we would want to watch the dubbed version, we would watch it in the TV through our crappy cable provider.

You just payed a lot of money to some software development company, for a change that was completely unnecessary and that nobody wanted.

Someone probably assumed that we do not understand English because we live in a Latin American country. It pisses me off.

Dub means crappy voices (and cartoonish, Butters sounds pretty eww), bad workarounds for shorts phrases because spanish words are way much longer making dialogues simplified, lots of jokes cant be translated and the result is pretty bad, a lot of stuff doesn't make sense because the word play is not possible (like Jared's "aides", or the way Tuong Lu Kim says "city")...
Damn, I want to watch the episodes on english again, I want a workaround too.

Duuude, I can’t watch the pandemic special in that crappy Spanish dub! Please don’t make me! Guys for real, South Park is not a super cool animated show, the thing that has always carried this show are Trey and what’s his face’s voices. The jokes mean nothing in Spanish, they are not funny nor have the right context. Please let me choose the English audio. Make it an option if you want but don’t force us to see it dubbed.

I see this now includes German sites and the ability to choose which language to see the show in. :cartmansopissedrightnow:

I've sent messages to the show's FB and Twitter accounts about this problem:
@SouthPark get your techs to restore the spoken-language option to the videos! We're getting Latin American and German complaints that they can no longer watch the shows in English! I'd be pissed off too, if I couldn't watch the show in its original language!

@SouthPark well i'm another annoyed Localization victim, i really didn't bother with the german version as a person from Switzerland (it just sounds stupid, like kids having an STD, Trisomy 21 and puberty at the same time) , but since you didn't even let us the choice to watch it in English (original), i will have to stream it on bullsh*t sites like burning series or Netflix (which only has like 5 seasons) - Please just give us back the option to choose to watch it in english.

Is the first time I get mad with southpark, a totally crappy decision to force us watch their content in spanish or any other lenguage if you are not in USA territory, let´s say Im an american living in Mexico, so Im f*cked, -like cartman says: I like to be kissed before I get f*ck! - cause there is no way to watch any episode in english, spanish dub is terrible!!! really f*cking stupid decision!
