    Chinese Translators [CLOSED]

    This position is currently CLOSED.

    You don't need any experience in manga scanlation to apply for this position.

    You do need to be fluent in the Chinese language (Traditional Chinese required in most cases; some basic knowledge of written Cantonese is useful too).

    The test contains five sections; a mandatory generalized test, and four specialized translation challenges, each representing a different style of Chinese writing. You are required to translate the first test, and pick any one of the supplemental tests to do. Instructions are included with the test.

    Send your application to joinegs[at]gmail.com and you'll hear from us as soon as possible! (within 3-7 days)

    The Chinese Translator test you can download below:
    Name:  Download_button_S_blue_light.jpg
Views: 1923
Size:  3.8 KB

    IMPORTANT:
    Please have this as the Subject of your application email:
    [APPLICATION] -Chinese Translator- your nick

    And include the following info that we would like to know about you in your application:

    Manga interests?
    What kind of projects you generally like to work with and if there is anything you don't like doing. (Seinen /shounen /shoujo?)

    A specific manga interest?
    Are there any specific EGS projects that you would like to work on? If yes, please tell us which one(s).

    Are you reliable?
    Can we count on you to deliver the project that will be assigned to you or is it in your character to disappear while it's half done?

    Nickname?
    The nickname you would like your work to be credited to.

    Are you in any other group(s)? If yes, which one(s)?
    If you have previous experience in manga/manhua translation, you MIGHT be able to skip the test if you show us samples of your previous works.

    Why would you like to join Easy Going Scans?
    Tell us a bit about yourself, where you're from, why you chose our group to apply for this position, and how you came across our group
    This makes it easier for us to know exactly what you're interested in doing for us, and will make it faster for YOU to receive a reply!


    Also Important:
    The downloaded files are .rar archives, so you will need a program to open such files, e.g. as winrar or 7-zip for windows, or unrarx for mac.

    I'm still a little confused. Do I only type the english text in Microsoft Words/ notepad then attach it along with the application email or am I suppose to wipe away the chinese text and insert the english text in the speech bubbles in the images provided in the test and send the edited images together with the application email?

    No no, the translator just translates into a text document, you don't edit the images! So just write it down in a format like:

    Chinese Application Chapter
    Translator: Ferlynn-x3

    Page 1
    Mister long hair: Yo~
    Girl: You again?!
    St (small text): You were the panda!
    St (beside long hair): who are you calling a panda!
    Mister long hair: Get me one of those ramen you are selling here!
    Next: I like it with more noodles than usualy
    Girl: Ok! One bowl of ramen coming right up!
    Sfx (sound effect): Clatter clatter

    Page 2
    Mister long hair: The smell of broth. Nothing like a good bowl of ramen when it's cold outside.
    Sfx: Shiver

    Etc...
    then save that as a .doc or .rtf file and attach it in your email to us~ Good luck!

    Unzip the file using WinRAR, PeaZip, 7zip, or any other zipping application. Once the files are unpacked then you can read the contents.
