1) Handle: UnusuallyNormal
2) Positions you can fill: Translator, TLC, Proofreading.
3) Types of projects (VNs) preferred: PC novels ONLY.  I prefer comedy, action and romance types and avoid nakiges(not out of question). Nukiges are ok as long they aren't very heavy content like gore/horror. 
4) Availability (edit this one as you get involved in projects): Currently am NOT Free.  
5) VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: Base Son, Softhouse Chara and MinatoSoft(and parent/spawned producers) mainly, but others are acceptable.
6) Motivation for joining in on ftl: Honestly, to increase the access to VNs for people that can't read/speak japanese and to deepen the knowledge in japanese.
7) Conditions* (any additional conditions, under which you will or won't work):

  • Horror, Gore and Utsuges are OUT OF QUESTION.
  • I would like to avoid otome, yaoi, yuri and VNs with a lot of tentacles(just a bit is ok). 
  • I'm not a miracle worker.  People usually like to leave the hard work to me(yeah I'm looking at you, university classmates) and I hate that. I can't do a group's job alone.
  • While I'm not a perfectionist, I don't like to make mistakes and when I notice I made one I try to fix it immediately. If i'm working on something, I like to do it well done.
  • I'm open to advice and suggestions, but I don't like nagging.
  • I like to keep the deadlines, but if I can't I will say so.  Don't ask the impossible.

Handle: Blake

 

Positions I can fill: Image editor (UI, CG de-censoring, yes I’m one of those. I’m one of the abundant)

 

Types of preferred projects: I really have no preference for this as I'm only working on the images. See conditions for exceptions.

 

Availability: Unavailable at this time

 

VN most interested in producing an ftl for: No specific titles, but anything from FAVORITE, YuzuSoft, Alcot, Pulltop, even older companies like Elf.

 

Motivation for joining in on ftl: I hate mosaics, I can’t stand them, and if I can do something in my own small way to help a project remove them then I will. The world needs more uncensored (de-censored) visual novels out there.

Went MIA because I moved from one country to another, twice. I honestly apologize for not updating here, as I wasn't available during this time.

Handle (the one you use or plan to use): AstralSword

Positions you can fill:
Text Editor (English) - A test is required. While I am not terrible at it, english is not my first language.
Image Editor/Cleaner - I am good at cleaning and editing, but I am not good at drawing. Sadly, I am can't draw a vagina to save my life (mosaics are my bane).
Script scene-recreator (once the logic behind it is understood, I can make whatever you want).
Video editor (adjusting size, adding subtitles, turning videos into giant .gifs - in case the engine accepts gifs for mobile background and not video files);
Types of projects (VNs) preferred: Whatever keeps me interested till the end. Usually Nitro+ and Type-Moon stuff.
Availability (edit this one as you get involved in projects): Currently working on my own Demonbane translation/Realta Nua thing, but I can manage to work on another.
VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: Usually Nitro+ and Type-Moon stuff.
Motivation for joining in on ftl: Basically, I love to read. And VNs became a large portion of what I read on my free time, so I think it is time to contribute back to the community.
Conditions (any additional conditions, under which you will or won't work):

  • For the greater good (and by that I mean greater quality) run a few tests for the role you want me to perform. A friend once told me I was a jack of all trades, and that is quite accurate. I know a bit of every role (I fare better at some roles than I do at others) but I am not really a specialist at any of them.
    Run a test. If I pass, then we go from there.
    There is no such thing as a rejection when it comes to projects like this. If I do not fit the minimum quality requirements for a job, just say it. I won't bite you or anything. Quality standards exist for a reason.
  • I work and do college (finally... It was about damn time I graduated), so my free time is not always the same as everyone else's. That being said, a nazi-narrow schedule is overkill.
  • If I say I will do something, then I will. There is no need to keep asking every 10 minutes if I did my job.
  • I try to do my work as soon as possible, exactely to prevent what I wrote above from happening. If I have any changes in my schedule, you will be the first to know.
  • You can clearly see that I am very easy to deal with. Just throw anything at me and, if it is interesting enough, then I am game.

1) Handle:  Optimistic;Nihlist


2) Positions you can fill:  Translator ( Unskilled, backup translator, see note at bottom. )


3) Types of projects (VNs) preferred: I'd rather non-18+, but i'm not picky if it's not too extreme.


4) Availability:  Available


5) VNs most interested in producing an ftl for: Axanael ( I really want to see this translated, great game, although it was a tough read for me), Unred Night ( Example of a 18+ VN I could translate: ideal for a beginner like me as it's only 10 hours and is in a perfect vocabulary range for me; probably a good indicator of my ability ).


6) Motivation for joining in on ftl:  I love translation and have great respect for translators. I support the translators I appreciate and want to see VNs grow in the west, as well as have the translations they deserve. I am also learning Japanese for this purpose and hobby of mine; I am here to support the industry I love so much and grow to become a better translator to help those read the stories that are just waiting for them on the other side of the language barrier.


7) Conditions:   I can handle 18+ I guess, but with not certain things: Extreme fetishes, especially involving scat, futa, wetworks, extreme guro etc. are a no-go for me, as well as Yaoi. I can handle other things, though generally I prefer vanilla etc. In general, I just prefer things that are interesting, whether it have good or bad writing. I aim generally for non-18+, but I may not be picky if it comes down to it.

 

I'll be upfront: I took the JLPT N3 in 2018; failed by a close margin (9 points IIRC). I had just started learning Japanese a year and a half earlier. I don't trust in my ability to lone-translate; I do trust in my ability to help though. I'll take my time if it gets hard and I try to do everything right; I hate rushing and giving a half-assed product more than anything. I've been told i've been learning Japanese remarkably fast by peers, so I'll probably be quick to adapt to most works.
