then i'll help with both please :)
Thank you very much! :D
You're officially on the project now. :)
It's really awesome that you're all doing this! I've downloaded all of the scanned pages. It's amazing just how full of content the book is - info on the games, anime, and manga, quite a lot of which I've never even seen before! I know a lot about the games and the anime, but I never got to read much of the manga series so it's quite new to me.
Is there a list of people who are already working on this project and what they're doing? I'm also interested in seeing what I could do to help out. My skills in Japanese are limited, but I can still provide proofreading and image editing services for the project (I'd just need the translated text and a note about where it goes in the book). I'm quite skilled in Photoshop and I use it every day, so it wouldn't be a problem for me.
Thanks! I'm pretty excited to see how this will turn out too.
I do have a list of the members on my computer, I will post it later in the next days.
I'm very busy in the last weeks, so I couldn't do anything on the Project, to be honest.
I've made some mock-ups of how the book should look like, but I can't post it very soon. (personal life problems and lack of time).
TayoEXE was working on the translation, I don't really know his progress right now, but we need it to start working on the editing.
If we can find more translators, we can manage to fasten up the process, but right now, he's the only translator aboard.
That's why I'm looking for more translators. I can't throw everything on the poor guy. XD
It's just too much work.
If you DO know Japanese, it would be nice if you could help, even if it's in something small, like, the character's names. (there's a lot of pages dedicated to character art).
It's may sound like a small part, but it helps a lot, believe me.
If we can focus on someone translating the text and then, have somebody else translating the smaller things, it would fasten at least 35% to 40% of the progress.
While we do have a lot of people dedicated to image editing and English grammar checking, help on these areas is always welcome.
You can work on whatever you want, really.
This is just a fan project, really. We're doing it because we love Kirby and we want to see the book done in English.
No pressure at all. Feel free to work on whatever you want to.
Also, we're needing someone to check the translations and see if it has any mistakes (on the translation and it's accuracy, not the grammar itself, that's another subject).
So, you just need to pick an area (or 2, or 3 or everything you want) and start working on it.
Just let me know if you're working on it and WHAT are you working on, so I can add you to the member list. :)
