Quick update on recruiting & RTD ads.

Yuusha Onna also needs an editor to get moving again. Example of what your working with.
Alice Tale is moving along, could probably do with a second TL
Master of Monsters is moving along, could probably do with another TL too.
Elf Tensei, Haydn’s been busy with RL, but says he’ll be working on it again real soon.
Kumo & Slave Harem are still up to date with the author.
TSO and Fantasy!? are still lost causes at the moment. They need TL’s to start up again.

I think everything else is doing alright at the moment.

Editors need Translation Aggregator and Atlas so they can double check any odd sounding translations they come across. Read this.

If you want to edit either of the top two, take a look at the work before you contact me. If you want to TL something, jump ahead a handful of chapters & do 100 lines as a trial, THEN contact me (so you know if you can handle it, and you’ve got something ready for me to see).

Contact me on skype: cyrojen (yes I spelt if different to my username).

Moving along. Thanks to everyone that donated and/or turned off Ad Block on the site. At Christmas we had a little spare funds, so I gave each team member $15. I’ll be doing that again for every current staff member that is working at a reasonable level.

Though, it’s been nearly six months for us to get enough spare funds to do that. WordPress ads is not good. Google ads turned us down. One that accepted us gave us a spam ad so I got rid of them after a day. Another didn’t contact us back. I’ll keep trying, but if anyone has used any ad groups themselves that they can recommend I’m open to suggestions. Some of our stories contain sex scenes and some ad groups don’t like that.

Machine Translating to give a bit back to the community.

Other than side stories which are not part of the regular chapters count, novelupdates also includes chapters released by blastron who is redoing the series.

What do you need to know to be an editor? Do you just fix the sentences up and try to make them make sense?

This is the only reference we have. If you start off with it, you’ll get better with practice.

I saw no mention of E? Heibon desu yo~!. Does that mean it is going along just fine (like kumo), or is it so dead you forgot about it?

Hi, I would like to work as an editor for the above 2.

How is the status of shinka no mi? Because we used to get once a week updates on it but they are becoming less and less frequent. It’s not just the latest one which I understand is particularly long but it’s been happening since before.

Hi Omega, thanks for your patience. With Shinka we hoping to get back on track with scheduling, previous chapters that came out were due to quite a few factors, such as pc dying, translators disappearing without any contact. So hopefully we should be back on track. πŸ™‚

I’ve looked over the example documents you have posted, and they aren’t too bad. . . I can re-arrange, fix, and sometimes embellish them to help the sentences flow better. If you would like, maybe I could do a trial run editing? Food for thought.

I’d love to compare notes if you do edit Return of the Former Hero

I’m working on typing it up and editing it now (started around an hour ago?). Looking at the timestamp on these posts, I am in a different timezone than the server host – over in Central Standard (US). As of writing this, I am ~35% done editing, and will probably make it to 50% within the next hour. After that, sleep, job, then continue. I’ll try to figure out how to share a link from something like Google Documents after that so you can take a look, and the admins here can as well.

So, finished it faster than I expected, and I think I have the google drive folder configured correctly.

Well, Kumo is no longer up to date now. Finally.
