Hello everyone!

 

Handle: Nicoco

Position you can fill: Editor/Proofreader/QC (I don’t know anything about hacking sorry and I can speak 3 languages but sadly not Japanese)

As I can only speak English I may not be the most effective editor but I'm a native English-speaker and fluent in English so proofreading should be a cinch (I've also won a number of English academic awards throughout my life like consistent top of the year English excellence awards and even being top of the state for a nationally-renowned English competition LOL. If you don't believe me I could send you proof, though I hope I'm not coming across as too pretentious.)

Types of projects (VNs) preferred: ANY otome games, yaoi/BL, I don’t mind rape, incest and H scenes and I love games that feature dark themes and yanderes. I also like the Tokimeki Girl's Side series.

Availability: I’m available whenever you require my assistance. If you take me on board I’ll be extremely dedicated and get back to you ASAP. Any script for otomege will be completed and sent back immediately if you send it to me since I love it so much lmao.

VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: Games by Idea Factory, Rejet and Otomate (basically any otomege). I would LOVE to work on PSP Otome titles but I’d be happy to work on PC games as well. I also love games by Nitro+Chiral. I'm a big fan of Clock Zero so if anyone's starting a translation for that please consider me!

Motivation for joining in on ftl: I want to help the VN community as much as I can because you all seem to be working so hard and helping you in any way would make me happy :) And of course, I want to help in contributing to faster releases!

Conditions:

-       NO Lolis, or Yuri (with Lolis) It's not that I hate lolis... it's just that I don't think I will be as motivated.

-       I don’t really like harems or straight romance VNs that focus on the guy kissing/banging/making sweet love with 70000 other heroines

-       --> Basically I don’t like VNs targeting the male audience. 

-       I am a first year uni-student and may have to focus on my exams when the time comes but I will make sure to notify you a few weeks prior at least so I don't just bum out on you and leave you hanging :)

-       You CAN send me ANYTHING to proofread, if you really need the help!

Doesn't matter what genre (even the ones I listed that I hate – just please be desperate). 

-       Finally, please be kind to me :)

 

Contact: nicoco.vn@gmail.com

 

Hope you're all faring well!

 

Edit: currently proofreading Dot Kareshi, but is willing to accept more projects project finished! please consider adding me to your team I'm now more available than ever :)

 

Note: my dream is to work as part of a translation team who are dedicated in finishing the project they undertook. It would me so happy to be in an actual team instead of doing freelance work here and there ><"" I don't know if that makes sense lol.

Handle: Tsukiyo Reiko
Positions you can fill: Proof Reader/Editor
Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Fantasy, Slice of Life, Horror, Psychological
Availability: -AVAILABLE-
VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: I'll update this later when I can find the list I made.
Motivation for joining in on ftl: I see a lot of VN's that are well translated, but have choppy sentances, poor word choice, or awkward wording. It makes me sad to see this after all the translation work, because the full enjoyment can't be gained from a poorly written story. As a writer, it's a little irritating to have to read these kinds of uneditied, unchecked VN. It takes a lot away from the story, and even more from the feeling of the moment. I would love to help make the translation flow smoother, and help lock the reader in further.
Conditions: Please be serious about the project if you ask me to join. It would be frustrating to put in a lot of hard work with my team, and have it left unfinished. I don't roll with that kind of half-assedness.

1) Handle (the one you use or plan to use): Dunmer Rogue

2) Positions you can fill: Editing, proofreading, quality checking

3) Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Sci Fi, Mystery, Romance

4) Availability (edit this one as you get involved in projects): Plenty of free time currently

5) VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: Anything with an enticing story

6) Motivation for joining in on ftl: There are a lot of stories I'd love to read but can't because I don't speak Japanese. I'd love to do what little I can to help make these amazing stories available to a wider audience.

7) Conditions* (any additional conditions, under which you will or won't work): Since I don't speak any Japanese, having good communication with TLs and TLCs is important. Good communication between all editors and proofers is also important for keeping the tone and flow consistent throughout. As for yuri, yaoi, otome, and H games, I can't say I have any issue with working on them. That preference may change after working on some, but right now I would probably be fine working on most anything with a good story that would keep me interested in seeing it all the way through.

Hello. I am a semi-professional freelance translator with about three years of experience in handling non-literary stuff like tourism pamphlets and documentary subtitling. Lately I was thinking of making a shift toward literary translating and thus would like to practice on things I actually enjoy reading. Note that due to the nature of my professional experience I have more confidence in my reading comprehension than producing good flowing prose. I also have never attempted translating anything erotic so far, so I don't know if I can do it competently. -_-;

 

1) Handle: Conjueror

2) Positions you can fill: Translator (JP>E)

3) Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Only the select VNs mentioned in (5).

4) Availability: Busy working for MangaGamer.

5) VNs interested in producing a ftl for (in order of preference): Himawari (I'm particularly interested in bringing this hard sci-fi gem to western audiences as it is my second favorite visual novel after Subarashiki Hibi), Aiyoku no Eustia, Ikusa Megami Zero, Genrin no Kishougun 2, Haru Made, Kururu, Bullet Butlers and Chrono Belt. I'd add Dies Irae too, but I'm too afraid to tackle THAT for my first literary translation. I might also be persuaded to translate BALDR FORCE, Sekai de Ichiban Dame na Koi, Oretachi ni Tsubasa ha nai, Haruka ni Aogi Uruwashi no and Hatsuyuki Sakura.

6) Motivation for joining in on ftl: Spreading VN love to the world, practice for my job.

7) Conditions*: None that I can think of at the moment.

I noticed there was an attempt to revive Aiyoku no Eustia translation project a few months ago, but it failed due to the group lacking an experienced translator. I wish I was around then. Hopefully the interest hasn't waned yet as it's definitely among the best visual novels I've read. And I've read a lot. ;)

Handle: Sugiken

Positions you can fill: Translator

Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Moege, those with daily-lives plot that doesn't include mystery or anything complexity. Just "normal" VN. Drama are ok though. And yeah, PC platform only. And only interested in nice art VN.

VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: New here but i'd love to do Hibiki Works' Pretty X Cation series, or something similar like that. And also Yuzusoft too.

Motivation for joining in on ftl: Of course, for fellow non-japanese out there and as a repay for all the TL ers out there translating VNs i've read that made me fell in love with them.

Conditions: No BL,Yaoi,otoge. I'm fine with Yuri though. Self-paced since i'm just starting out, but i'll try to get better and better through leveling myself up. Don't mind doing ero-scenes but i rather avoid it as much as possible.

Handle: Darbury


Positions you can fill: Editor, Image/Video Editor, Proofreader

Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Story-driven titles

Availability: SOME (updated 7/20/16)
Currently proofreading scripts for Majo Koi Nikki, but I've still got some bandwidth — if the right project comes a-knockin'.

VNs most interested in producing an FTL for: Well-written VNs that seek to elevate the medium. Or fun crap that knows it's fun crap. Also? I'd fight your mom for the chance to edit a competently translated version of White Album 2.

Motivation for joining in on FTL: Whenever I see a thoughtfully translated VN with bad editing, it makes me want to crawl under a pile of puppies and cry. (Ideally, the puppies would be crying too, because who doesn’t enjoy a good group cry?) I spend much of my day punching up scripts and ad copy, so this is a nice way to use my powers for good.


Conditions: NO LOLI. Established teams only, please. Wasting what free time I have will only make me add more puppies to my cry-pile. Think of the puppies, you monsters!

1) Handle: Ittaku

2) Positions you can fill: Translator

3) Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Comedy, Romance, Slice of life, Moe/Charage with almost exclusively happy endings and not too much drama - must have H and have an average rating of >7/10 on vndb. Would consider Nukige if there's a little extra story component (I translated Polygon Love 2 for example).

4) Availability: Working on Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no.

5) VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: Anything like To Heart 2 or lighter, like the selection by Clephas here: https://forums.fuwanovel.net/topic/4204-for-love-of-vns-chicken-soup-for-the-soul/?6) Motivation for joining in on ftl: Enjoy translating and it keeps my Japanese moving forward

 

7) Conditions* (any additional conditions, under which you will or won't work): Lots of conditions, see below.

 

Absolutely no rape, torture, humiliation, disgrace, loli, dark themes, violence. Don't like utsuge nor excessive drama either.

 

I'm only an average translator at best so if you demand exceptional accuracy I can't deliver that yet.

 

Will only work on one project at a time.

PC games only.

Can translate up to ~1000 lines per week.

Will not tolerate abusive criticism. Must accept limitations of my time availability and quality of translation without barrage of complaints.

Will only work for an established team - either one that has made significant progress on an existing project or is starting a new project having successfully completed other projects.

Team must have a coordinator that is responsive and communicative.

I have a strong sense of responsibility for any projects I take on so I will not take on a project unless I intend to complete my allocated component so I expect a team that is also suitably motivated.
