Kawaru-Enishi is recruiting people for the following positions:
Japanese > English Translators
Chinese > English Translators

Japanese > English Translators
Requirement: Decent english, We need you to structure the translation so that the editors/proofreaders understand it.
It's quite time consuming to first translate from japanese to english and then for someone else to translate from english to english smile
We don't require you write a script without a single spelling error or anything like that, Just try to structure the sentences correctly smile

We have a project called Blizzard Axel that lacks a translator.
Here's some infor about Blizzard Axel:
Mangaka: Suzuki Nakaba
Volumes: 6 (Ongoing)
Genre: Comedy/Shounen/Sports

Kitazato Fubuki is always overlooked by his family members; overshadowed by his more talented and famous brothers. He tries to draw attention to himself and usually spends his days fighting, but one day he manages a quadruple and a half jump at the skating rink. Thanks to this remarkable feat, he is showered with attention for the first time in his life...

Here are some scans from Blizzard Axel so you know what quality you'll be working with smile

We are recruiting translators for our current projects aswell to help speed them up.
Our current projects are:
Love Lucky
Fate-Stay Night
Kami to Sengoku Seitokai
(Action\Ecchi\School Life\Shounen\Supernatural)

I will upload sample scans for these later so you can check the quality and such aswell smile

Chinese > English Translators
Pretty much the same projects as the ones listed for Japanese > English Translators.
Why I listed those under that topic is because we currently possess the raws in Japanese but we could probably get chinese raws aswell.

We do NOT require any past scanlation experience from possible editors.
We do require that you have some basic knowledge of photoshop and it's tools tho.
We have a editing test we require the possible editors to take. This is not to see if you qualify as a editor or not, It's to see how much you know and what you know so we know what we need to help you out with.

At this moment we need editors for pretty much all our projects to speed up the process a little.
We have a couple of possible projects we're discussin within the group right now, You can find the titles at the bottom of this post.

You need to be good at structuring sentences... There's nothing worse than reading a manga where you can actually tell that it has been translated word by word... This can be a bit tricky sometimes but we need you to be able to give life to a translation without spoiling it.
We need you to have an eye for errors such as spelling mistakes...
We have a test for this position aswell... It will be up later smile

Possible Projects
We have NOT decided on any of these projects yet.
We're currently discussing/voting/figuring out if we have enough manpower to start these projects:


Usefull Links
Japanese > English Translation Test
Chinese > English Translation Test (Will be up soon)
Proofreader Test (Will be up soon)
Editing Test

How to apply
Step 1) If there's a test, Take it.
Step 2) Contact me on: - Send me the result, A short introduction of yourself and contact information.
Step 3) We will review it and get back to you.
