Hi guys~ It’s Kiki.
Right now, we’re in a pretty urgent need for editors, especially for Wife is Outrageous, Wangye’s Maid is the Sect Leader, The TR of Always Being Captured by the ML, Descent of the God of Magic and more. Please apply if you’re interested~ we welcome you! We have a pretty fun team at our discord server, and plus- you can read the chapters early! Always a bonus.
However, if you come join and then quit after a few days, it might better to not apply for testing so many applications is a bit time-consuming. We don’t have any strict rules though, and if you feel like you don’t have enough time to fully edit a chapter before its released, you can talk it out with the translator or we can assign another editor. Unfortunately, though, our editors aren’t paid (unless you mean in chapters or experience!).
Also, editing isn’t just clicking red lines (cough, actually had an editor like that before). As wise old man Peter said in his quote:
Translation is like ghostwriting a book. You get a script with sene-by-scene details and you write a story based on it. Not all translators are good writers, some suck at writing natural dialogue, some suck at narration, some suck at technical aspects ( punctuation, grammar, tense consistency ), some have a bad vocabulary. Editing makes up ( or at least should make up ) for what the translator lacks.
Although it really isn’t all that complicated, remember that its editing, not proofreading :).
Haha I hope I didn’t scare you all away! Don’t worry, we have a fun and welcoming team here at ISO, and we’re honestly not really all that scary. Now if you’re still interested, please make a copy of the test below and send it to us at [email protected] or through our join us page.
Our translators had sooo much fun making the test lmao. https://discord.gg/CGc4pj
