    Hi everyone,

    Amimaru Translation and Localization Services translates and typesets (including cleaning and re-drawing) manga for various Japanese and other companies around the world.

    Our Homepage: http://www.amimaru.com

    We are looking for freelance typesetters, translators, quality checkers and proofreaders to work on manga localization projects. This will be a paid freelancer job.

    We require the following:

    For typesetters and quality checkers:
    - You know how to remove the Japanese text from a raw image and redraw the missing parts in Photoshop (only for typesetters and editors).
    - You have great lettering skills and are familiar with manga / cartoons lettering (only for typesetters and editors).

    For all positions:
    - You are open minded and willing to improve your skills.
    - Preferably minimum capacity of 200 pages of manga per month or more.

    Please send your applications to the following email address: hr「at」amimaru.com.

    If you don't have any previous work samples, that's fine. We will ask you to complete a manga typesetting test. This means anyone can apply, as long as they're interested in manga typesetting / translation.

    Thank you.

    Hello. I would like to apply for the position of JP -> EG translator, if it's open.
    (I can typeset as well, but sadly I use a different software for editing images, not photoshop.)

    I'd like to apply to do translation, please. Do I have to be able to typeset as well or is it a separate position?

    I'm not sure if they'd actually want to pay you for both of them if you do end up both Translating and Typesetting.

    Greetings,
    I am interested and would love to apply for the typesetter position. The link at the bottom are the chapters of a manga in which I have done the typesetting on, however I am still willing to take the typesetting test if needed.

    Thank you everyone for your posts!

    Our business is expanding, and we are looking for more typesetters, translators and editors
    (quality checkers) to join our project in English and potentially Arabic,
    French, Swedish and other languages. Due to the significant volume of work, we are
    currently looking for those who can complete at least 200 pages a month. If
    you can manage more than 200 pages per month, or if you know someone who can,
    we are very happy to hear from you.

    If you could drop me an email to hr(at) amimaru.com with information on how many pages you can
    manage per month, we will get in touch with you to proceed with the recruitment
    process. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

    Please email us and ask, and also indicate what position you are interested in. We can tell you about the compensation rates for current open projects that are available for you to join.

    If you would like to do both typesetting and translation, that's possible too. We will pay separately for translation and typesetting.
