PostSubject: Applying for Proofreader   Mon Nov 08, 2010 6:46 pm

Good afternoon!

I am looking to see if I can help out with your scanlations as a proofreader, as it's what I can do best from the list of jobs available. I currently have time on my hands and I think this would be a nice start to contribute to the manga community. Without them, I would not have been able to read mangas like Psyren from start to finish in a matter of days. tongue

I am hispanic and currently a senior at Florida International University. I am set to get my Bachelor of Science degree in May of 2011...and am as proficient in Spanish as I am in English. I've also studied Japanese for 2 years, and therefore would be my 3rd language.

Well...thanks for reading! And please feel free to contact me if there's anything you need. Smile

Omg, my cousin goes to FIU! XDDD [Kyle Bumgarner, do you know him? >_> <_<]

Ahem. Also. Welcome to the Muda Forums! I'm currently the only proofreader here, so it would be nice if someone could help me out every now and then~

I've been mostly proofing as I typeset though, lately... Before I started typesetting I would grab the trans and raws and proof it as I read through it, using the chapter for comparison (good way to correct punctuation in the trans!).

So I could give you a test, if you'd like to try? XD

Hmm, Kyle Bumgarner...after viewing FB profile pictures, lol...nope, don't think I've seen him. He has a very pretty girlfriend though. Kudos to him for that. It's been my mission for a while now, lol XD

Oh, so you typeset as well? I'm guessing you need to learn some aspects of a certain software to be able to do that then...or maybe not? How's that been for you?

Sure! Sounds good. =D

Hey there! Welcome to Muda! To typeset you need photoshop, a font pack and basic notions of typesetting, we can gladdly give all three to you if you are willing to learn. For the proofreading part, I'll let Meg deal with ya.^^

Hope to work with soon~

Sounds good! Very Happy

I see, so typesetting must be done alongside proofreading? If that's so, then I am definitely willing to install and learn the photoshop techniques for the job. Is there a cost?

Also, any rough draft I can proof would be great. Thanks! ^_^

Hi there ppere! Thanks for your application ^^

You can get Photoshop here Razz

http://mudascantrad.forummotion.com/recruitment-f5/start-from-0-no-experience-read-here-t144.htm#6291

Though the CS3 version doesn't include a crack nor a keygen, the CS5 is pre-cracked. Maybe you would want to download that version if you don't want to search for a keygen for the CS3 (the best version for me xD)

As for the fonts, the most-used fonts in scanlation are Wild Words, CC Jam Lee, CC Astro City, Yikes!, Damn Noisy Kids, etc. Those are the basic ones; after that, you can use your imagination to find which font suits the text better!

In the meantime, lets just wait 'til Ita gives you her proofreading test ^^

Hope to see you round! Razz

here's where to have a basic idea on how to typeset:

http://www.unblessed.net/guide/main.html

go to the typeset section~

Try it, post the results here, Meg will have a test for you I'm sure soon. Feel free to ask any questions~

You never know... I started out by playing arcade at a site, became a international translator-> moderator->typesetter->cleaner-> admin of that site -> quit -> came here... odd shit. Where will this lead you? :p

Typesetting doesn't have to be done while proofing, that's just how I do it. XD It goes faster, true, but not everyone can TS. I will be training people on how to TS soon, so if you're interested, that would be great. XD

As for a test! I'm just going to pull something from the old Psyren days, so it might be a little difficult - hope you're up to it! ;D

Trans:
Spoiler:
 

Here are cleaned raws for you to look at (trust me, you'll need it): http://www.mediafire.com/?p3gf3rmgr27hxac


My tips to you:
> You can do the setup of this however you like, i.e.
Person: Whatever they say
OR
Bubble: Whatever they say
OR
B1: Whatever they say

It's entirely up to you, just make it so you know who is talking when. You may or may not be familiar with this manga - that's perfectly fine, just do this to the best of your ability.

> Make sure you clearly indicate the pages! Page 1, Page 2, etc. Usually the translator will do this for you, but not always.

> Include the punctuation from the original raw. If it has ...!!? at the end of a sentence, add it. If it ends in an ellipsis, (...), make sure it doesn't end have more than THREE periods. Yes, manga-ka can get away with that in Japanese, but not in English.

> Any questions, please feel free to ask! I'm always happy to help. (: When you're finished, post your version here and I'll give you my feedback and then you'll be made a trainee.

Have fun and good luck!

Oh good, thank you. I tried. XD Wasn't really sure what I should say/do...so I tried to think "What would I want to know if it were my first time doing this?" and went with it. ;D

Nice response there, senpai! Thanks for all that valuable info. I'll get to it after I finish these mundane college tasks set forth to me by FIU. I'll try using the chat more. It's probably better...and more entertaining XD

12:15 AM here...what's the equivalent as of right now for you guys? Just curious. Smile

11:22 pm here, understandable as I'm in TN. XD

I think there's 3 hour time difference between Kiba and I and a 7-8 hour one between Loki and I. For Burning Willow and Dark King, it's 2 or 3. I know for sure 14 between abcd9146 and I, and I'm guessing around the same for bajuwa and laojiang. No idea on Robler or heidenrex. ): This concludes my stalker tendencies. ;3


As I always say, real life comes first, Muda second. As Kiba always says, this is a hobby, not a job. So in other words, take as long as you need. :Db

well meg, since you said that you wrote your message 11:22 and it says "Today at 6:23" I'm guessing that it's 5 hours. My math is superawesome Very Happy

if you're speaking GT
MT (grennwich something time) then I'm +1 and most of china is +8. And daylight saving time stopped last weekend (at least in sweden) so don't worry about that ^^

Unfortunately, all the formatting was undone when I copied and pasted from Word. To make it easier to read, though, I can send it to your e-mail address. And for the record...I'm at GMT -5. ^_^

By the way, I definitely do like this manga. It's awesome. Read it all in a week...and is highlighted on my sig, along with my all time favorite.
