Good explanation of scanlation

Now that I've finally entered the world of manga (at least one series), I started looking into various kinds of terms for that subculture, and came upon scanlation: "the scanning, translation and editing of comics from a foreign language into a different language." And since Japan produces a lot of manga, there are a lot of scanlations out there, especially into English.

I found a very good explanation of scanlation at Inside Scanlation. Even if you have a basic understanding of what it is, this site will help you understand the history of it as well.
