So you want to join our little team? Wonder how you can help?
I’ll try to make a little guide for how to apply and become a member of the team. So here are a few things to think about:
1. Scanlation takes a lot of time. Be prepared.
You can be a
-Translator (Japanese or Korean to English)
-Proofreader (Looks over scripts and corrects flow, english finds missing bubbles, etc)
-Cleaner (Removes text in Japanese from the raw manga pages)
-Redrawer (Like cleaners, remove text, but have to draw in art behind erased text)
-Typesetter (Decide which fonts to use and place text in bubbles or on other texts in English)
-Colourist (Not an integral part of scanlation, but they can add some extra benefit by colouring in pages for credits or banners or other projects (example cover page coloured by Jusa). Please tell us if you’re interested and we can work out what you can help with! Note, artistic talent required.)
-A scanner (Provide raws by unbinding books, scanning them into jpg format and uploading them.)
FAQ: Am I good enough to CL/TS/Redraw?
-Yes! As long as you have enthusiasm, are prepared to dedicate time and come chat on irc, learn how it all works, etc. Be prepared to spend time every day, then you can do it.
So first step is to send us an email or come on our irc channel and from there, we’ll chat and send you the materials/training packages that you should have a look at. Depending on your experience and other background we might give different links to read, and tips as well!
Look forward to hearing from you!!
