last time I posted it as part of a Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! chapter release but it somehow seems to either have gone under or there was barely anyone interested to commit to this community offering their help as editor. I hope it is the former as I would weep if it was the latter. XD
I am looking for one or two more editor(s) for our team of old men. As I am currently translating three series’ with an average of 2 chapters per week, I intend to hire some additional help. As we are all old men I am looking for a female masc … err no, an editor who can help out with the 3 series concerned.
What is required of you:
- Availability – In the week: Evening European time or afternoon American time. Available to be contacted on weekend.
- Language skills: Native. I am sincerely looking for only Britains or Americans/Canadians. Of course that includes natives living in another country. A rich vocabulary is very desirable as your task won’t involve simple grammar/spelling checks.
- Age – Preferably 25+. Why? Because I think those have already settled in life and thus can plan their schedule more steadily for a long time.
- Skype is a MUST – All communication goes through that.
- Reliability – If you say you will do something, you are expected to do so. Of course everyone got RL stuff going on, but the least to be expected is a heads up in that case.
- Experience as an editor is a plus but optional.
If you think you can live with these conditions and are willing to devote time and effort into editing a translated novel, then you are welcome to send your applications to [email protected]. Though I think it isn’t necessary to mention, but I will say it anyway, I will only look at proper applications.
