Is this paid official work or commissioned fan work? This posting isn't very clear.

Pretty sure it's commission fan work. Official work would not be coming here to request. They would have their own company and policy. Besides if they do it here, that'll be easy way to get work ripped.

This is actually official freelance work. Thus, if you know people who are skilled enough to edit actual Japanese manga, and could use some extra income, feel free to let them know. 🙂

Do I get any bonus pay because I'm also a translator 😀

I have a Alienware computer and a Wacom display tablet. I have examples of my work if needed. I hope I can help.

We currently have enough translators. Thank you for offering though. 🙂

But typesetters are welcome.

Typesetting using InDesign is a must for this work since this is the industry required program for majority of the manga we handle. The process is almost the same as typesetting using Photoshop though much easier once you get used to it. Photoshop and Illustrator will only be used for retouch/redrawings when needed.
