I’ve posted the same annoucement in my LJ, so ignore this if you’ve already read it. Anyway, my dearest friend, Naomi and I created a sister group (or a sub-group) from Ochibichan-scans that does only BL called Echochi. All thanks to nostalgicity (aka, I know who you really are XD) who’s willing to scan one project for us!
So far we have two projects in mind, Hanamai Koeda de Aimashou and Amayadori wa Basu-tei de, both by Kano Ayumi. We’ve already started our first project, but for the second project, we’re still looking for another editor to start on it. I don’t think we’ll need another translator since OS is filled with wonderful translators unless you’re a Japanese to English translator or a crosschecker.
I’m going to make one last shout out here.
For cleaners and typsetters, experience isn’t exactly needed, as long as you’re willing to learn, we’re happy to help you out! As for editors, we need you to have experience since you’re going to head a project’s editing team and be the “art director” or supervisor for that project. Crosscheckers are people who checks scripts that are translated from Chinese with the Japanese raws for the sake of accuracy and to fill in the blanks. So, CC-ers must have a good grasp in Japanese.
You don’t have to stay with us for a long term either, but if you love us enough and want to stay around, please feel free to do so. We’re nice people! And to prevent the projects from dragging on and on, causing staff to lose interest in it, we’re going to release the project by volumes instead of chapters. So a few editors (or cleaners/ts-er) will work on project to make sure it goes out fast. ;D
Enough said, if you’re interested, feel free to write an email to us at echochi(dot)scans(at)gmail(dot)com with the position you’re applying for as your headline. :D Any questions feel free to write a comment here!
