This site was previously a bunch of stuff from the web, collected
1997–99 and 2000 by me, Peter Backes, without any respect to
copyrights. I translated most of it and sometimes added a little
bit written by myself or contributed by others. Really at
the time this was done I didn't know much about copyright and I
now can only really apologize that it has been this way for so long.
I have now taken off any stuff which has been copied word by word
from other pages, at least I hope so.
Anything that is left now should be original content which I or
others have written initially for the purpose to publish it on
this site. There is also a little bit of extra stuff which
I had not written myself originally, but which I had translated myself
to German once, I have put all of that into the extras section.
In case you find anything that I missed and which you wrote, please accept
my apologies, it should not be there, please
mail me and I will take it off
immediately. Also please do the same if you dislike any
translation I did for stuff you wrote.
- The translation of NOREO's OCEAN GIRL web page, of course,
derives from the English version. (Or did you think
I'd understand this Japanese? ;)
- The translation of the official english episode outline for
season 4 derives from the version found on Jonathan's multimedia page.
- Some of the translations have been improved by Locutus.
- All synopses have been written by Locutus.
- The german cast descriptions have been improved and
translated by Locutus.
- The official German episode descriptions have been
created by ZDF/KinderKanal
- The translation of the short descriptions for episodes
1–13 derived from Sf-Lover's OCEAN GIRL episode guide.
- Parts of Alan Morton's episode guide used with friendly
permission of George Fergus.
- The biography translations derive from Lauren's official web
page, ABC Australia and for two I could not find out the original
- Sebastian, Marco and David reported a whole lot of spelling
mistakes and other things.
- Stephanie sent me Sudi's and Joelene's biographies—but
only translations thereof are still on the page, because the
originals are already on the ABC web site.
- Locutus wrote the German synopses, improved my bad english a lot
and for some time managed the #OceanGirl channel.
- Many thanks to Martin Requart, who unfortunately died on a
trip throught the USA, for his strong commitment to the fan community.
I recently found this beautiful quotation he once had on his web page,
Things go. New things come. That's the way of it
all. (Neri in the OCEAN GIRL book, chapter six.) We do
miss you, Martin!
