From PingMag comes an interview with Simona Pini, an Italian/English manga translator who translated titles such as Air Gear, Bleach, Steel Ball Run, Host Club and Nana. In the interview Simona shares her experience as a manga translator:

Let's get a bit practical: What would be a typical day for a manga translator?

Well, usually I wake up at 4 in the afternoon, turn on my computer, read my mail - and get lost on the internet. I read the Panini forum because I like to read what our readers think, and I do Mixi. Eventually I start working until the morning...
