Applying to be a translator

Post by monkeyman5867 on Wed Jan 26, 2011 5:42 am

I would like to become a translator.
I don't mind about which manga to translate, i just want to translate something Smile
As for my background, I am a Japanese born American and I've been living abroad for 18 years so im bilingual Japanese and English.
However my Japanese is probably better than my English right now since I've been studying for the Japanese university entrance exams. And since I'm done studying i have some free time.

Anyway looking forward to working with you all.

Welcome welcome; Do you know your level of japanese? (the tests they take twice a year to determine one's level)
We don't really have a translator test, perhaps we should get one. If you're decent in translating you're pretty much accepted.

My level of Japanese?
I've taken the japanese language proficiency test (N1?) and passed so it should be fine... i think?
The only thing im worried about when translating manga is translating the phrase "宜しくお願いします" since there is no direct translation to english of that phrase

edit: in my first post i made a mistake saying i was japanese born american, im actually american born japanese. Just got confused with the two

N1 certainly is enough. we mostly let our translators choose their own projects; we do have a list of suggestions etc though, but you're pretty much free to choose anything you like. Kati (admin) will likely bestow the translator title on you and you'll be able to see the staff forum...

LOL Hazama trying to get someone to do what he wants.

@Saru: Welcome fellow slave master~ Feel free to make use of the slaves here. Which means you don't really have to consider taking up what Hazama suggested. Razz
