Looking for translators to help fill in the database

+ posted by bax in Site News on Jan 30, 2010 16:04

Hello Everyone!!

In the effort to fill up our manga database with all the necessary inputs, our Manga Advisors are working hard to make it as informative as possible. However, we are currently lacking manpower in Japanese able people.

We are currently looking for anyone with Japanese proficiency to help us write summaries for the manga in the database (for the manga without a summary). It's a daunting task for only a couple of people, so that's where you come in.

There are a lot of new manga and old ones too which need summaries/descriptions. If you're interested to help, please do PM me. All help is greatly appreciated.

Summary of the task:
  • The task doesn't involve a dateline, so if you do help, you don't have to worry about meeting one. In short, you can help during your free time.
  • The task involves reading the oneshots/manga/volumes and coming up with a short introduction summary. You only have to read the first chapter or two for this.
  • If you take the task, I'll be PMing you the manga list, as they come. There's no set number of work in a specific set of time.

Example of a complete database entry (look at the Summary part for this specific task):
Example of a manga that needs a summary:

So, if you're proficient in Japanese and interested in doing something for MH in your free time, please do PM me. This is also a good chance for new translators/translators in training to practice their Japanese.

Thank you.

Edit : Post is updated, so please pm Nami instead of Bax. Thanks.

Usually, if I found a manga that I read without a summary, then I'll try to write up one for it. I can't exactly say that I can help you with all the manga in the database (taken that writing up summary can be troublesome sometimes. Plus, I don't read every single manga there is in the database. If something stood up, then yep, I can help out, but if the manga doesn't interest me, then I can't exactly guarantee that I can help you out with those, taken that I didn't even want to read about them in the first place...>_<") but...yeah, I'll try looking around and help out with it if you want then. >_<"

It may be hard for myself to do it actually but as it currently stands I will try to do the best I can with whatever series I can do. Probably want to stick at first with series I know before diving into lesser known stuff.

Yeah, this is to help to lessen your load ^^;; You alone doing this will be hard on you.

I'm not quite back yet: my vacation officially ends when I'm back home but for the time being I'm still on the island. You'll know when I'm back when the translations start pouring in.

I just joined here, mainly because I saw this notice. I just wanted to say that I am a Japanese major who has been studying Japanese for six years and spent a year living in Japan as part of my degree program. I would say I am decently proficient and would love to help out as well, if you guys are still looking for people. :)
