Translations… done!

1 06 2008

Yeah, I have FINALLY finished the tedious translations for Black Jack NEO and has submitted it to Chuang Yi already. I have no idea when the english version will be coming out but I am really looking forward to it! It’s going to be my first translated book! Yeeaahh!! It was fun and I got to read comics without paying, I also learnt a lot, in terms of Japanese and translating. I’m really looking forward to translating the second volume of the series.

Anyway, they have told me to translate another series. Seems like there aren’t any time for me to take a break, huh? Translating is definitely tedious and on top of that, I’m holding another part-time. A million two thousand and five hundred apologies for the lack of manga review updates. I… really don’t have the time. I spent all my off days translating the manga, damn! I miss writing manga reviews =(

By the way, I checked out Kinokuniya and Volume five of Bloody Monday is out! Sweet! I didn’t had much money with me but I couldn’t resist. You know what I mean.

Translator Position @ Chuang Yi

18 04 2008

That\'s right, I\'m a cute lil\' girl!

Hello, people! How are you? It’s been long since I updated this mansion of mine, yeah? Anyway, I have good news! When I got my holidays after graduating from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, I sent my resume to Chuang Yi in hopes of securing a translator position. While they said that there were no slots available during that time, it wouldn’t hurt to send my resume over, and so I did. At long last, a good news was sitting in my e-mail inbox yesterday night. Like, I’ve been waiting for it for sooo looong! Chuang Yi had just e-mailed me that they would like to commission me for a short two book series that they MIGHT have in May!

However, nothing is confirmed yet as they require me to take a test to see if I’m a suitable candidate, whether be it my Japanese language proficiency or translating style. Man, this rocks! I’d be able to read my favourite mangas and do what I usually do, but get paid for it! Yay! ^_^ Hopefully they will like my translations and commission me for it. =D

And oh, give me just a liiitle bit more time and you’d have one fresh manga review coming your way
