Recruitment: Editors

Heyas folks,

somehow I feel it hasn’t been long since I was looking for new editors. But somehow the number of editors in our group has decreased instead of increasing. I wonder whether I am this difficult to deal with? Oh well, time for new challengers then, I guess. Fufufu

I also changed the requirements a bit this time. Or rather I changed the entire process as well. And yes, it’s as the title says, I am looking for editors and not one editor.

Let’s plunge into what I am looking for:

  • Availability – In the week: Evening European time or afternoon American time. Available to be contacted on weekend.
  • Language skills: Native. I am sincerely looking for only Britons or Americans/Canadians. Of course that includes natives living in another country. A rich vocabulary is very desirable as your task won’t involve simple grammar/spelling checks.
  • Skype is a MUST – All communication goes through that.
  • Reliability – If you say you will do something, you are expected to do so. Of course everyone got RL stuff going on, but the least to be expected is a heads up in that case.

Well yea, I removed the age restriction. I guess even an ossan group has to follow the trend!

Now as for the process:

If you are interested in joining our group as editor, please edit the current chapter 25 of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou!

Feel free to send in the edited chapter to infinite.novel.translations@googlemail.com as Libre Office Document or if that isn’t available as Google Document link. Time limit is one week from now aka until Monday the 6th June 11:59 pm GMT. We will check the sent in edits and then contact you, no matter whether it is a fail or a success. Feel free to ask questions via mail, albeit pointless questions will be ignored.

One advice: It helps to check the current translations and the glossary.

 

I am looking forward to your application as editor! Don’t be shy and help the novel community to flourish! ^^

 

Greetings,

Shasu

 

Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Chapter 44: The overwhelming reward

Konbanwa minna-san,

today you get another chapter about the exploits of Wendelin and his group of happy troopers!

As Kruncs-dono has been busy iRL this weekend, you will have to deal with my self-edited version! If you can’t handle that, you might want to wait a few days until our local editor takes a look. Though I feel confident this time… probably… I hope? Well if you find any errors, feel free to point them out as usual. πŸ™‚

Hey, I was enjoying my weekend! It is edited now, so enoy! πŸ˜‰ (Kruncs)

Please extend your thanks to Garit for re-editing chapter 17 of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! We are getting closer to being done with it! ^^

The next regular chapter will be released on Sunday the 12th June. I will start working on the extra interlude this week as most of my time this week went towards this chapter.

Lastly, I always welcome some donations! Although this might sound shameless, but we translators are normal people as well… I think?

 

Greetings,

Shasu

Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Interlude 16: Night before the Martial Arts Tournament

Heyas folks,

surprised to hear from me this soon again? Well I am too…

Today I bring you the second of the 3 cued extra interludes of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou!

Please thank Nico Z. for enabling you lot of leechers to read this story!

Also, as always, Kruncs, the undying editor, has worked his magic on my grade-school English!

The last commissioned interlude will also be the last interlude of the “Living in the capital” arc. It is slightly longer and thus nothing I can translate quickly. But I will try my best to get it out to you guys as soon as possible.

Lastly, I forgot before, please extend your thanks to Garit for re-editing chapters 13-16 for better reading experience. I must stress that he is a really eager and diligent worker at this thankless task and deserves all the gratitude you can offer him!Β 

We also decided to push back the PDF version until we re-edit all chapters up until 26 as the chapters 16+ really give you a brain meltdown at times. Once we are done with that, it will be easier to focus on the PDF/EPUB versions.

|>> Enjoy <<|

Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de – Chapter 29: It seems to be an encounter

Heyas folks,

here’s your dose of Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de!

We are headed into the finale of the first arc of the series. Let’s see how the author intends to finish it up!

Please extend your thanks to Kruncs for editing this on a short notice! Poor Kruncs is being worked to the bones by me, so expect an editor recruitment post soon again! πŸ˜‰

The next chapter will be released on Sunday, the 5th June.

Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Interlude 15: Helmut-nii-san’s adoption into the family of his bride

Heyas folks,

first off, please thank Asvan for enabling you to read this interlude!

This is the first of the 3 extra interludes in the cue. I hope that I will be able to release the next one on Monday, the 23rd May.

Well this interlude took me quite a bit of time between the regular chapter releases, I guess you will see soon enough why.

Please also extend your thanks to Kruncs for editing this interlude.

P.S.: Tanaka-kun wa itsumo kedaruge is the best anime of this season. ^^

Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Chapter 43: The Loot from the Underground Ruin

Heyas folks,

here’s your regular chapter of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou!

I know I am still owing you guys 2 extra interludes and I already started to work on interlude 15, but that one really costs me a lot of willpower, so it will probably take a bit longer.

Please extend your thanks to Kruncs-san for editing this chapter!

The next regular chapter of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! will be on 29th May.

|>> Enjoy the read! <<|

 

Cheers,

Shasu

Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de – Chapter 28: It seems to be the first dungeon, but it is strange somehow

Heyas folks,

sorry for the slight delay. With Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! being that long and RL interfering I had to push back the release by one day.

This chapter is self-edited. Baka’s PC has broken down and I don’t want to hassle Kruncs as he got 3 chapters coming up this week already. Feel free to point out any mistakes I made. xD

The next chapter of Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de will be released on 22th May.

|>> Have fun reading it! <<|

 

Regards,

Shasu
