My apologies for the lateness of HP V4C2. It’s up now, along with SK V1C4, but we will do our best to make sure that there are no more delays like that again. In the mean time, on to important matters: recruitment!
Now that the re-organization of PR! had gone pretty well, we are recruiting again! The recruitment for translators and C/E editor is always open, but I thought some advertisement would be good.
As usual, all applicants need to download the set text, translate/edit it and sent their work to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then evaluate your application, and reply to you whether your application is successful or not, usually in a week time =).
Currently, PR! is consisted of 6 translators, 3 C/E editors and 5 English proof readers. As you can see, we are really short on C/E editors! This shortage is basically the bottleneck in the translating process, which accounts for the delay in update. So every C/E application is greatly welcomed =) However, I don’t mean to say translators aren’t important. PR! had a group of superb translators that can work fast and well, but we still need more to guarantee the continuity in chapters update. I used to be an translator in PR!, and I can tell you it’s not an easy job. There are a lot of phrases in Chinese that require a lot of thinking to be translated as accurately as possible into English, and even without those ‘evil’ phrases, translation itself takes a lot of time. Imagine translating a 10 page chapter…and yes, that is the usual length of our translation. So please join! We want to continue sharing the awesomeness of Half Prince and The Legend of Sun Knight, but we need your help to do so ^^
Also, with the newly finished volume three behind us and several of our proof-readers being busy with real life, we’ve decided to open up recruitment for one more English proof-reader. Just like Eili mentioned, you can find the specific information related to applying on this page. We will only be accepting applications for one week, so be sure to get yours in by July 8th! Please also note that proof readers do a large amount of work when it comes to chapters (generally going over a single chapter 2-3 times, just per person), so only apply if you have the time to dedicate to the group.
We are also still in desperate need of a PDF designer! We can’t get the PDF volumes up until we get one, so please apply if you can!
