A vast majority of Manga scanalations I read online are ones that never got officially translated and published in my country. Meaning the Manga publishers aren’t losing any money on them. I think they should focus on making it less risky for them to publish more of there Mangas in different languages.
I’d recommend for any manga that isn’t popular enough to normally warrant international publications, that they translate & publish them online only, and for a cheap per manga cost, or for a subscription service. That way they don’t have to worry about the risks of overprinting books to where they don’t sell all of them.
And let’s be honest, the people who read manga scanlations online are used to not pay anything, so the only chance to get them to pay for it is it is super cheap.
