Hey lych33, we're currently in the process of finalizing our projects but at the moment we have a fantasy comedy webtoon, supernatural horror webtoon and possibly a slice of life webtoon. We're also open to new requests as our list isn't finalized yet ^^ The only genres we won't accept is hentai, ecchi, yaoi or yuri.

Hello!

Are you still recruiting for proofreaders? I am not very experienced, but I'd like to join the process of creating and publishing manga. I would prefer to work on a supernatural series, but any series is fine. I have a few questions beforehand however;

- Is there an age requirement?
- What programs would I need to use?
- About how much time per week would this job take up?
- Are there any good proofreading practice sheets online that would determine if I am qualified for the position?

I hope that I can be of some help!

Thank you,

Noburo

Hey Noburo!
Unfortunately we recently filled in our proofreader positions, but if the position ever opens up again, we'll be sure to send you a message! To answer your questions...

- Is there an age requirement? Nope~ We just need someone who has a good understanding of how the English language works, and to be quite honest, we never ask for anyone's age. Someone could be in his/her early teens and still have better grammar than someone in his/her late twenties, so it really doesn't matter ^^

- What programs would I need to use? Nothing too special. For proofreaders, we mainly use Google Docs. Translated scripts can come in Microsoft Word or GDocs, so it'd be best if you could open both types of files.

- About how much time per week would this job take up? It really depends on how long each chapter is, but we're pretty lenient with scheduling (so if something comes up, no need to worry - we understand that things happen and sometimes you can't submit something on time). One script can take from 15 minutes to a couple hours, depending on the length of the chapter, the quality of the translation, and your own ability to detect and change grammar errors

- Are there any good proofreading practice sheets online that would determine if I am qualified for the position? We have a test for proofreaders to gauge their ability to find and fix any errors, but we also give successful applicants a guide on common things to look out for. Nobody's perfect, and we certainly don't expect a perfectly proofread test, so I would just say to try your best and we can go from there smile

Hope that cleared some things up! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask~

Thank you for replying!
I landed a position for proofreading Hana Haru, so I have a bit of experience now and know more or less what I'm doing (don't judge the quality of the proofread until chapter nine is released. That's where I stepped in). So if you ever need a proofreader, I'll probably be available ^^

Hello. Could I ask what Korean manhwa/webtoon you need translated? If I'm interested in the story/or if it's one I'm reading, I would be willing. Thank you!

Hey aimichan ^^
Our Korean webtoons that we currently are seeking translators for are Heaven's Soul (confirmed - we really need a translator for this one) and Atlania. Of course, as you are a translator, you do have the option to start up your own series, as we'd be more than willing to get staff to help out on a project you like.

And to Noburo Absolutely! We'll send you a PM if the occasion presents itself~
