Applying for translator/editor  Reply with quote  

Hello,

I am interested in being a translator for Japanese comics... I can probably do the Shimizu Reiko one if necessary since I am not bad at intuitively understanding Japanese and I have a couple different kanji resources.

Also, if an editor is needed for "Yaya" still I can do that too since I love Yaya and Ms. Kang's works (finally bought the final "Hissing" volume!!).

Qualifications for Translator:
.studied Japanese for 7+ years
.watches Japanese TV/plays Japanese games/reads Japanese manga all the time
.<3's Dragon Voice Smile

Qualifications for "Yaya" Editor:
.strong English spelling/grammar skills (for any last minute mistakes)
.owns Photoshop
.is pretty good with it (8+ years) but took an advanced PS class just in case
.art major so does PS retouching all the time
.speaks Korean
.Loves Yaya and Ms. Kang's manhwa
.<3's Dragon Voice Very Happy

Thank you for reading! Smile

Oh, wow!! That's some amazing qualifications you have there! Shocked

I'd be honored to have you on board.

I really need a jap translator with your background, but having another editor on yaya would be great (at this rate we might just finish the project before the year ends ^^). In other words, translating would be your primary job but when you need a break from translating or I need to speed up the editing of Yaya I'll have you work on that. How does that sound? We can discuss this more in detail ^^ I'm sending you an e-mail right now!

Thank you SO much for applying!
