To be a proofreader you need to have a good English level. You need to observe grammar or spelling mistakes that the translator might have missed while concentrating on the translation, and overall to make the text flow well. You also need to inform us (-> the Translator) if you find any missing translations by making a thread in the Help Section -> Missing Translations Request -> J/C/K raws.
If you want to apply for this job, please be dedicated, and if it's possible, fast. Editors can't work on the translations if they are not proofread. Don't forget to proofread your own application post. I'm serious.
Please leave a reply here, or send a private message to Melita_H AND x5ga. After you've applied, one of us will send you a test.
If you have problems posting on this forum or sending private messages, please check that you have validated your account first.
