Recruitment

Hello, and welcome to the recruitment page! First of all, we’d like to thank you for considering joining our group! We are always recruiting members, experience is not a requirement, but the only thing we ask for is DEDICATION. 

Remember, if you don’t know anything, it’s okay! We have a wonderful editing team from different time zones around the world ready to teach! If you need it, we can even provide software!

In addition, if you are not interested/don’t have time to learn editing. Our group has a unique position that requires no skills and no experience. Scroll down for more information! This position is called “Assistant.”

We also offer Chinese and Vietnamese TL training, but this is only for the people who already know the language but need some guidance.

To apply, fill out this application.

Assistants

Job: An assistant’s job is to assist! There is no definite job description for assistants, as they do a variety of different work. Some examples of jobs that assistants could be expected to do are removing text from pre-cleaned pages (no redrawing needed, just remove text with white paintbrush), pulling/screenshotting raws, writing name lists, etc. Basically, assistants take on important jobs that are simple, yet also very tedious. There are no tests required for this position!

Assistant information

Translators (TL)

Job: A translator translates another language to English. You should be somewhat fluent in both languages, don’t worry too much though, we have proofreaders! Our translator positions are NOT limited to Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese. We believe that all language are a part of this manga community, and that everyone should be treated with respect. We currently have tests for Japanese, Chinese, Korean, French, Vietnamese and Indonesian.

Translator tests

Proofreaders (PR)

Job: As a proofreader, you are expected to be fluent in English, good at finding mistakes as well as know correct grammar and spellings. A proofreader goes through a translated document and corrects all mistakes (grammatical errors, misspellings, etc.). Basically, you will help the translator to improve the translation, whether it is to fix grammar or to correct vocabularies. Another very important aspect of proofreading is helping the translator to make the wording flow naturally. Additionally, the genre of the project is important because different genres call for different ways of speaking so collaboration with the translator is a must in your job.

Proofreader Test

Editors (cleans and typesets)

We provide editor training for those who don’t know anything! However, you must use photoshop; there are too many problems and inconveniences with GIMP. If you don’t have photoshop, we will provide links.

Editor Tests (also click for editor in training)

Cleaners

Job: A cleaner cleans. By clean, we mean leveling, duplicating, redrawing, cloning, and making the RAWs look presentable for the typesetter. It’s not as bad as it sounds…

Cleaner Test

Typesetters (TS)

Job: A typesetter puts the proofread text onto the cleaned pages. (AKA the ones who make the words look pretty for you to read)

Typesetter Test

Quality Checker (QC)

Job: A quality checker checks the whole chapter before it is released. The QC corrects any mistakes, that the cleaner, proofreader, or typesetter has missed. A quality checker must have experience in editing and proofreading. We require quality checkers to pass the proofreader, cleaner, and typesetter test in addition to doing some work in those areas.

    Hello! I’d really like to join your group. I’m Korean, I was born in Korean and my parents are both Korean. But I lived outside Korea for 6 years, and went to International School, so my level of Korean and English are both native.

I am very interested in this area of language.

    Hi, I’m interested in joining your group.
    I know basic french and I would love to help translate french to english vice versa, it would help me improve so much.
    I’ve downloaded the test, and have translated it, but I’m not sure if I should edit the pages as well to put the english text in?
    My photoshop software is outdated and refuses to open, unless you guys have no problems in letting me use a different software/ supplying me with the new version.
    If not, I can send all the translations on a separate page…

    • EsteSapphire says:

  60. Coral says:

    I was wondering if I could get volunteer hours for proofreading, if by any chance I do get the job? Thanks in advance and sorry again for the multiple useless comments, my thumbs got a little over excited and pressed post. Anyways, have a wonderful day, and sorry again for the troublesome posts. :D

    • EsteSapphire says:

      Hello,
      Thank you for your interest but i don’t think you will be able to get volunteer hours for school. Your high school requires you to do something different from this, because technically speaking scanlations are illegal. you should speak to your teacher for a more appropriate method to get volunteer hours. we will still like for you to help us out with proofreading though, thank you :)

  66. Faris says:

    Hi! I’d like to try my hand at both the Typesetting and Proofreading tests (I’ve never done Typesetting before so I want to learn it as well, before I actually apply for the position), but I don’t know what applications I need in order to be able to do both, especially Typesetting. I can’t even open the .raw and .zip files on my laptop. Can someone please tell me what apps are needed? Is Photoshop one of them? Wouldn’t I need to pay for that?
    I use Windows 10 on my laptop, and I have iOS 10 on my iPad.
    I would really appreciate your help, because I’m totally psyched about starting!

  67. Faris says:

    I downloaded GIMP as a Typesetting software, but I can’t seem to open the .psd file I downloaded from the Typesetter Test. Would you happen to know how to get the files outsourced to software?

    Really sorry for all the questions! I just need to get set up once and for all before I start!

    • EsteSapphire says:

      Hello,
      You need Zip to open the Zipped file, also .PSD is photoshop so I’m not certain GIMP can open it. Your best option would be to get photoshop since we generally don’t let our editors use GIMP. Send us an email to know how to get PS.

  68. Frizzylishes says:

    I know I’m young (13 years old) but I have read manga and I have noticed a lot of mistakes such as; they put in words that arnt needed or are in the wrong spot, and there are some spelling as grammar mistakes. I won’t be able to do much practice because of school but I would like to try and become a proofreader. I have also read some of the manga your company have made and I really enjoyed them. Also I would like to note that I’m not that good at spelling but I will try my best and I can notice basic spelling mistakes, I am pretty good at making it make scence when I read it if there’s something wrong with how they’ve written it.

  69. AIKA AYU says:

    Hallo My name ai. I can use photoshop, Corel, Manga Studi, Clip manga. i can be cleaner or typesetter or editor. but first of all. i want to ask. Do you paid us or not??

  71. Lenny Lydreas says:

    Um hello, I’m on my school holidays now and I wish to join the group. My mother tongue is Chinese but my English is pretty okay too since I was taught well. I’ve never been in an organisation or anything before but I want to try earning a new experience before school starts again. I’m pretty much an idiot in computers and such but I hope I can help out.

  72. Whese says:

    I was hoping to post this here, since my account has yet to be approved, and I’d like to start asap.

    Hi, I was hoping to apply as a proofreader, but the test has me somewhat confused.

    My question(s) have to do with what I need to do. I’m not entirely certain about what to do.

    Do I correct the grammar/spelling in document form, and leave it on the document? Are the images provided just for reference?
    Or am I supposed to correct the document and then place the text in the correct places on the images provided? If so, I’m not sure how I’m supposed to do that, what application would I need in order to do that? :-/

    I’m just a bit confused, but I would sincerely love to work with you all, so please get back to me on this when you can. ;)

    Sincerely, Whese.

    P.S. (The easiest way to contact me is via email at either swhedon281@tps501.org (preferred) or mediocreanimaniac@gmail.com)

  73. Whese says:

    Actually, sorry, I’ve run into some things and I will be unable to help, quite sorry about that.

    Hi, I have experience in drawing manga, and have completely cleaned raws before (removed all text bubbles). And I am interested in applying for a position as a cleaner. But, I still use PS5. Are you still looking for cleaners? And, if so is PS5 okay to use? Also, how often do cleaners usually have pages to work on?
    Thanks

  76. raneem says:

    hello ! if i want to be a proof reader do i have to know the original language of the manga? And i downloaded the test but i’m not sure what’s exactly required of me . Can you please explain ?
    Also , i’m both fluent in Arabic and English, maybe you don’t need arabic translators but i’ll be happy to help if there is a position for that. Thank you!

    • EsteSapphire says:

      Hello you just need a mastery of English. As for the text correct the words you think are wrong.
      On a side note we are no longer accepting proofreaders for now.

      Hi,
      we are looking for editors, also since you said you are a beginner we will be able to teach you. As for translations, we only translate into english, sorry about that :(

  86. Angelea says:

    Hello, are you guys still searching for typesetter?

(hope you choose me, thank you for your time)

  89. Kurineko says:

  90. KianneBaby says:

    I sent an answer to your translator test. i hope you will accept me as a translator…

  91. Lily says:

    Hi!
    I am very interested in joining your group, but I’m not sure how well I could do any of the jobs you have listed, so I was wondering if the position of assistant is still open.
    I have the program GIMP as well, although I mainly using for digital art rather than photo shop.
    I’d be glad to apply if there is anyway I can!
    Thanks so much

  92. Ikazawa Yamagachi says:

    hello there!!
    I was wondering if you recruit editors that already have experience in their job. As the requirement above stated that u people only appoint those who need to train as editors… i have some experience as an editor so that was why i was asking

    • EsteSapphire says:

      Hello,
      I think you are misunderstanding a bit. Editors in this case are cleaners, type setters and quality checkers. The editor in training is to teach people to become one of those, that’s why it’s listed separately. So yes of course we need people with experience the most. You can take the test and send it to us :)

  93. ronnie says:

    Hello,
    I would love to join and help you guys out as an assistant.
    Please let me know if there any available positions :)
