First off a little announcement from my side:
My company decided to downsize the number of people they employ and as such someone like me, with a temporary contract, naturally got cut quite fast. While I’d love to live the life of a NEET and just live from translating, that won’t be possible, unfortunately (considering the current donations, it amounts to an hourly wage of approx. 2 cents, so yea, not happening).
Thus I am looking for a new job and while most of you probably don’t care about that part, it will still affect the schedule once I find one. Next weeks schedule should be fine as is but after that it might change. Just take this as heads up, so you people are not surprised if the releases slow down or a series gets cut. I will keep you up to date. And no, I don’t plan on stopping to translate.
Now as for the recruitment:
I am looking for editor(s): I don’t judge my English language skills as that horrific (of course I might be wrong though), so the stuff I translate doesn’t need a complete overhaul to make it readable. Thus I am rather looking for someone with a rich language who can make the entire story flow more diverse and fluent without losing the intention of the author.
Required would be:
- Native language skills
- Age-wise: 20+
- Skype available (highly recommended)
- Availability – must not be online every day but often enough to be reachable on short term
- Reliability – I am working on a schedule and do try to keep it, so not turning up for a week without prior notice and such, is a no go.
- Previous experience as editor is not necessary (would be nice of course).
If you feel up to the challenge, please send me a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Ideally with a little introduction and the information on which series you want to work (If you are only interested in one series, please still state one alternative series you would be willing to work on). Available series are only those 4 I am translating, obviously. Kuro no Shoukanshi has lower priority as it is a novel written rather simply.
Of course translators and TLCs are always welcome, but who am I kidding anyway. xD
