Hi there! If there are any positions open, I'd love to apply. English is my strongest subject; I often proofread for others. I decided I'd like to try my hand at proofreading manga scans, since I often catch grammar mistakes.

Hello~

 

I'm very confident in my english as well as punctuation skills.

 

I do work very quickly. (I would prefer if I could be sent a deadline as I like to divide up the work appropriately.)

 

I have proofread translations before, As I was with two other scanlation groups (That sort of suddenly stopped doing stuff when the school year rolled around). I believe I got through 3 or 4 scripts before no more work came in. 

 

As a bonus, I like cats. :3

 

I am very interested in proofreading, and would love to work with you ^^,

Hello! 

 

Are you by any chance still hiring proofreaders? If so I would like to apply, I've never volunteered before but having been an anime and manga fan for a while now I want to help the community. I am a fast reader and have confidence in my English skills, I hope that you put my application into consideration.

 

Many thanks, and I will patiently wait for your reply.

Good evening!

 

I've been a proofreader before, actually, and I really enjoyed it. However, my previous scanlation group closed down because of internal drama and reposters. If you're looking for someone who has superb English skills and knows about all those odd quirks between languages, I'm your girl. I've got three hours each workday to dedicate to a project and a minimum of seven hours on the weekends. I have no obligations that could get into the way of my time to work on projects and I am not picky about what I work on. The most important thing for me is that I continuously grow and get better at things and in order to do that, practicing my language skills is a must. 

 

Therefore, please send me your test and you'll see that I have a great flow and can catch even the smallest errors.

 

Thank you,

Dlt111

I would really like to become a proofreader. I haven't been one before so I have no previous experience with it. Unless you count correcting speeches at school. I'm very confident in my English skills as I've always had very high scores in that subject. I am willing to any project. And I will work hard.

Hello! If this position is still open, I would love to apply.

 

I've had extensive past experience in several groups; Transcendence, Akashi Scans, Shoujo Sense, and Odd Squad are just a few of the ones I've been in. (Feel free to message/reply if you would like links to some of my past projects.) I was an English major in college and I currently work as a professional proofreader. I'm not quite sure if I'm ~godlike~ but I'll definitely do my best to show you quality work :)

 

Looking forward to hearing back!

I've been an avid reader of EvilFlowers' Non Non Biyori scans but it's been almost a year since the last chapter was put online and I feel it's a shame such a good manga doesn't have a good scanlation (I tried reading some other scans and they are terrible). Last time I asked about it, the lack of proofreading was apparently the cause of that delay, and since I'm more than willing to do anything possible to help spread the love of NNB.

 

As a bonus I'm also able to understand a bit of Japanese. And I like cats & lolis.

Hello there! I was wondering if I could apply? I have no experience in proofreading manga, but I'm a native english speaker. My classmates ask me to proofread their essays before they move on to final drafts, so I was wondering if I could help create english versions of manga. I read manga a lot, so I was wondering if there was any way I could give back! I happened to see you were looking for proofreaders and I got really excited! That's all! Thanks for reading!

Hallo, guys!

 

I'm a gigantic fan of Masca (even bought the volumes) and since i'm impatient and dying a bit inside with every day that passes without seeing new chapters of this epicness (i'm quite a vocal beggar on the comment section of this Masca: the Kings) i thought to volunteer as tribute and help you out. Now, to the bragging part. I have been a professional proofreader/translator for around 7 years now and last time i checked, my English skills were around C2 level (meaning bilingual/native), so i'm not a slouch either. I also have experience with proofreading manga translations to a degree (around 3 months to be exact for another Scanlation Group).

 

So, please adopt me.

Hi,

 

 

Recently had surgery so I am not working and I am VERY bored and would appreciate something to do.

 

I have worked in administration among other things and have been forced to proof read my emails (don't need any embarrassing muck ups, I'm not an Iphone) for far longer than I care to admit.

 

My grammar and eye for detail are above average. Spelkhec=Ck  is a god send. I have a sense on humor.

 

I will only be returning to part time study in the near to distant future so I will have mountainous amounts of time at your ever-demanding disposal. 

 

 

 

Please give me stuff to do.

Greetings!

I contacted you through Facebook, but had thought to leave a message here as well. 

 

Skills: I am fluent only in English.  I have 20+ years experience as a office manager, receptionist and administrative assistant.  I am proficient in MS Office with Word (and Works) Excel & Power Point.  I have worked with Adobe PDF and I am good at figuring out programs and computers in general.  I am very good at finding errors in the English language and I consider myself annoyingly anal about mistakes. However, this does not roll over into being a controlling person whatsoever*.  I am able to follow instructions and I have very good memory skills (I love facts, trivia and learning new things) and at times a photographic retention ability of knowledge (yes, basically I am a know-it-all).  I am good with sentence structure and flow.  I own a PC, laptop and a printer/scanner/copier. I have worked with many different cultures over the telephone and computer in my work positions.

 

*I am pretty passive and non-confrontational when working with others.

 

About Me: I am Tofu.Chan, but you can also call me Karen.  I've lived in Northern CA all my life.  I am a married, stay at home mom (I have back disabilities that don't allow me to work or stand for extended periods of time) and I am old (sobs!).  This leaves me a lot of free time in front of the computer, where I only just discovered manga about 6 years ago. Manga quickly became my #1 hobby, as I am a voracious speed reader and I pretty much read manga all day due to my injury. Manga genres I read are Josei, Shoujo, Romance, Slice of Life, Historical, Reverse Harem and Smut (Yaoi is OK as well). I don't really care for Sports or Tragedies.  Art in manga is very important to me. I do appreciate a good artist and I myself am a pretty skillful artist as I love to paint and draw.  I love music and anime, too. I am always curious about other cultures and I try and find the good in everyone.  I have a very dry, sarcastic sense of humor, and I love anything that makes me laugh. I also am no prude, no topic offends** me as I am extremely tolerant and good natured in life.

 

 

 

**To be honest, I do despise onions, tomatoes, southern rock music and Donald Trump.

 

Feel free to contact me for anything you think I may be able to help with!!

 

Tofu.Chan

Hello, if you are still looking for proofreaders I would love to help out.  I have 3 days a week with nothing but free time.  I work in a print department, so I have to proof check on a daily basis as well.

Hello! I lack experience in proof-reading but I would like to help with it. Since I'm terrible at other languages, I could only help with this. I've been learning English ever since I was little so out of all languages, English is my stronghold. I'm currently free so of course, I can help out. Thanks in advance!
