Edit: I have found a group to work with, thank you everyone for your PMs! Good luck to all those who passed your tests, let's all make this project wonderful!
This feels a bit like a personal ad so; Single Experienced J>E Translator looking for Experienced Group!
I've been studying Japanese for about 8 years now (yes I've been to Japan various times for school, vacation and business.) I have a B.A. in Japanese Language and Literature, minoring in Linguistics. My departmental focus was translation. I've translated Manga in the past for friends, fan sites and for several freelance jobs. I've been a freelance translator for about 4 years now doing a variety of technical and non-technical translation work. Currently I work full time for a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer doing a variety of jobs including in-house translation.
I have varied interests including but not limited to: technology, history, culture, games and of course manga. My specialties in Japanese lean towards these fields and also include automotive (and parts) thanks to my current job.
Oh, I don't particularly mind what genre or author's work is worked on, I've pretty much seen/heard it all so little shocks me. (Plus I'm of course a closet BL fan, just don't tell my co-workers!)
I'm pretty easy going, but pride myself in being professional. I will do what ever it takes to meet a deadline, even if it means living on coffee for a few days.
Anyway, feel free to PM me if you are looking for a translator! I look forward to hearing from everyone.
Edit: I just submitted my translation test. It only took my lunch hour and a bit, and didn't seem to be terribly complicated so I hope it's acceptable.
