    Default Work for Shaman King!

    Kinda a spin-off topic of my Mankin-Trad topic, but I feel that it should have it's own topic so it doesn't get overlooked as easily. That, and if you are a Shaman King fan, you'd look in this part of the forum more than anything. But, if you can't help, you can at least check out the Mankin Profile link below.

    First of all, The Great Spirit and Mankin-Trad are looking to hire some new staff to keep site content new and fresh! So below is some of the new job openings that we are looking for. Updated on Jan 26th 2007.

    Mankin-Trad Staff:
    Manga Translations:
    Translator Japanese-> English
    Translator Chinese-> English (maybe, depending on knowledge, and what type it's written in)

    A Japanese or Chinese translator (preferably Japanese, since it's the best way to get the orginal point across) is needed for some of our oldest and newest series. These could include (depending on what needs work on and who's busy and such); Jyuki Ningen Jumbor, Butsu Zone, Smash Bomber, or one of my special pet projects. You need to have a good deal of knowledge of the language you are working with. Not a ton of English skills are needed, just enough to get the point across, an editor can clean up grammer and such.


    Mankin Profile Staff:
    Info Translators:
    Translator Japanese-> English
    Translator Chinese-> English
    Translator Itailian-> English

    These translators will need to translate information directly from the Character Book (Manjien) and the Fanbook.

    Summery Translators:
    Translator French-> English

    As the Mankin Profile website is all in french, the job of this translator will be to translate French character summeries into English summeries. It's pretty simple.

    ------------------------------------------

    You may be wondering what "Mankin Profile" is. Basically, it's your only source for every Shaman King character. Birthdays, favorite foods, attacks, family tree, .etc. Also, it plans to be completely searchable at some point too. You can check out the french side right now: http://mankin.thegreatspirit.net/index.php

    So, now that you have read all this, you want to help? Post a reply in here with questions or what ever. Or you could PM or catch me on AIM/MSN/YIM/ICQ or e-mail. Also, if you have some other talent, or something that you feel can help either project, let me know.

    Hi, I'm a native Chinese speaker but have lived in New Zealand for years, so my English is pretty good too. If you're still looking for Chinese -> English translators for Shaman King please consider me! I've never worked in a scanlation group before but I've had a bit of experience doing scans alone. I already have the Chinese raws for the chapters you guys haven't scanlated yet, as I started doing my own scans for a little while after Manga Rain stopped.

    I can also proofread translations

    Hello, I can translate/proofread English/French!
    Things I can do are:
    1. A Type-Setter
    2. Summary Translater

    Basically I can do anything French/English, but these are the things I think I'd like to do the most!
    I've never worked with scans before but I really think that I can take advantage of the winter break to learn how.

    I think that would best be discussed over PM or at our secret headquarters Neo.

    How many spots are open? Or do you want everyone you can get? I'm okay at Photoshop so I suppose I could do editing/quality checking or typesetting.

    PS. Your scanlations are great!
