  2. QQ If only I knew chinese... (Is there something wrong with your translator since even PRer has to know chinese??)

  3. Nope, we like double checking, besides we have enough non chinese speaker proofreaders

  4. So then does that mean that speaking Mandarin or Cantonese is preferred but not really a strict requirement?

    ReplyDelete
  5. yeh not a strict requirement

  6. Would the four hours be at any specific time or on the proofreader's own time?

  11. ohoho!! i might be up to this job =DD
    my proficiency in english can be counted as above average but maybe not "high"
    and i'm a chinese (proud to say) but chinese is my second language -.- even though it's my mother tongue... OH WELL!! =D what do you think?

  12. I would do it, but.... I can't give 4 hours everyday. XD Also, I'm bad at translating, and I think the only thing I can read is kajin. Truthfully I suck at that too. > 3 >'''

  13. What if I study simplified chinese? I can somewhat read traditional chinese though.... Oh well maybe I will apply when I'm 17.

  14. Ah, darn. I saw an advertisement in 1/2 Prince about Cleaners/Translators, but it seems as though I don't even qualify for the simplest of jobs!

    If only I were an intelligent enough person to learn to read Chinese (the complicated characters bemuse me, greatly). Well, I suppose it would help if I actually signed up for classes or an instructor of some sort, but there is nothing along those lines readily available for me...

    I suppose I should apologize for leaving such a rash comment! Sorry 'bout this, should it bother you at all. However, I have to say that (after reading the requirements) I feel greatly disheartened and dense (perhaps dumb would suit my mood better). Not that I expect anything, I mean, what could you do? *shrugs*

  17. Hi! I was wondering if we could still apply if we don't speak Chinese or Korean? I am very proficient in English and would love to help proofread any scans to check for any errors? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. is the age really needed, im too young, but I would like to help..

    ReplyDelete
  19. Its too bad I'm too young...
    Just one more year, I gotta learn some chinese in that time then though..

    Keep up the great work guys!

  20. Highly interested. Though I've been reading through the previous comments and there've been several mentions of Chinese being a requirement (as in the language).

    If that has changed and there's a shortage of proof-readers, I'd love to give it a shot.

    Thanks,
    J.

  21. I'm too young right now but in in one more year I'd love to help out. During this year I'm gonna learn some Chinese in order to apply when I'm old enough.

  22. Hi, I was just wondering, even though I am a few years under the age limit, I fit the requirement for all the rest. I would love to do this, and learn how to help out on other projects when I get more adept at this....I even have a computer lab at which I can do things, but unfortunately it is at my school....BUT I can use everything well and even help, if you'd allow me. I understand if you say no. I'd just like to help out.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Same as above. I love your scans, have a few extra hours a day, and am proficient at English, taking AP Lang this year. I have my own laptop, but I'm only 15. I am willing to work as a proofreader or as a cleaner.

  24. Ack! Age restriction limits me T^T

    ReplyDelete
  25. Curse you, age restriction! *shakes fist at ceiling*

    ReplyDelete
  26. :P Yeah I only need 1 year more... Guess I can´t either.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love how most the comments are cursing age restrictions ^-^ I would so it myself if I knew Chinese or Japanese... But I'm highly efficient in English....

  28. I would love to do this...I'm completely fluent in english...then again i'm born in Australia. I often notice spelling errors, grammar errors in manga and capable of translating chinese but...I turn 15 this year...damn

    ReplyDelete
  29. Damn... I'm not really confident I can do it (the 'we expect a near-perfect narrative' line) when I read that part I suddenly became so small... it's like I lost all the confidence I had inside me... simply because the thing that I hate most is that when I can't reach up to what they expect of me... but still I wan't to help... soooooooooooo.................. is it ok to be a proofreader even though I can't understand chinese? Oh yeah, I know how to write korean but I don't know how to speak/talk in korean...
    that's all thank you...

  30. You don't need to know Korean or Chinese to apply. As long as your english is good... i.e. your test is well done, you pass.

  31. Dyslektic but will try anyway

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm just wondering, why is there an age requirement? I can't say I see a difference between a 15 year old who is completely qualified and a 16 year old who is also qualified for the job.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Very simple:
    1. Inability to follow instructions
    2. Refusal to follow instructions
    3. Consistent bad quality of test from younger applicants

    If you think you are good you can still apply, we can ignore the age requirement if the quality is good.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I want to... But I don't fulfill the age requirement... But I have already read all the Eclipse Hunter, and I want to share.. The awesomeness...

  35. Dang it..........can't for a year....................

  36. Hi, I completed the proofreading test, and filled out the application form, but it redirected me to a site where it said "Maximum Entries for this Period" and doesn't allow me to resubmit it. What do I do?
