I'm just curious if someone can help me make a decision here.  From what I can gather, Manga Studio 5 IS Clip Studio Paint.  Why would I want to go through the weird buying process and then apply an english translation patch instead of just buying Manga Studio 5?

Thanks for your help.

Updates.
Simple as that.
MS5 is already behind CSP 1.2 in features and bug fixes.

Thanks for your response.  I'm sure you are right that CSP will be updated more frequently than Manga Studio 5.  So if I want all the cutting edge features CSP would be a better choice. 

Also, with every CSP release, wouldn't we have to rely on someone to fix/retranslate the software again?  That's an extra degree of separation I'm not sure is worth using CSP over MS5. 

Would love more input.  Thanks!

There will be translation updates. It sounds risky but I think everything will be fine.
If I knew how to deal with translation procedures I would update the files as soon as they come out.
Fortunately Trev is doing a fantastic job at this, but I am not sure for how long he will endure.
I can always translate it with hex editor,  like I did with some menus and sub tools, but it is a slow process.
If there is need to do this, I will translate it , no problem at all. I love the program and I intend to continue using it for long time.
Anyways, if there are no more translations for future CSP, the current version is already more polished and feature rich
than current (and possibly the only) MS5 point version. So how ever look at it, we are in advantage. I think.

Cheers!
