Hello all!
As my username should be clearly visible on the website, I shall skip any formal introductions and get straight to the point.
I have recently stopped writing fanfiction - one of my previous hobbies - and I've decided to try my skills at translating. As I am quite interested in anime and manga, I believe that this is a good starting point.
I am able to fluently read English and Traditional Chinese. Additionally, I am currently studying Japanese, so I can also read it with the help of a dictionary.
I excel most in Traditional Chinese > English translations, though I could also try Japanese > English or anything else. I am also able to read some Simplified Chinese though it would take longer compared to traditional.
However, I do have quite a few preferences when it comes down to manga. Shounen that lacks romance or Yaoi (BL) is generally at the top of my priority list. Shoujo and anything that contains a thick trace of romance is at the bottom. As I am fairly new to such a business, I know that I shouldn't be too picky, but it will be great to translate something that I enjoy to read.
So, with all that said, I am looking to join any translating group that required either Japanese or Chinese translators. I will be great to help.
And finally, to any mods out there, I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong section due to me being new to this forum. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and please do move it if it is to be in the wrong section.
Thank you very much for your time and I hope to hear from you all soon.If there are any further queries or questions, please do not hesitate to tell me smile

Our group specialize in Yaoi, so I think you'd fit in great. ^^ We recently began working on a shounen project as well. Maybe you'd be interested. Come visit our site. We'd rather have you join us as a Japanese translator, but well, whatever floats your boat.

I've decided to start a new scanlation group, The Celestial Midnight...which is currently lacking staff. Editors, typesetters, cleaners, translators, and QC. If there's anyone up for it, who's got time for it, please apply. I'm hoping to do FateStay Night, possibly Akibahara@deep,

Yume no Soko
Black Yagi to Gekiyaku Madeleine
Chicken Party
Yama no Susume

I like a mix of series, like shojo, shonen, seinen.

I don't know any Asian language as much as Japanese. So, it's a Japanese-English group. Of course, if you are willing to translate to any other language, you're welcome. But the focal language is J-E. If you have a series you want to see released, let me know.
