WebComics is hiring around 20 Chinese into English freelance translators to be included in our comic localization team. The translated works are targeting American readers. Our genres range from fantasy, action, superhero to drama, crime, fiction, etc. The assignments are distributed weekly, and we expect the translators to finish at least 10 chapters weekly (around 500-1,000 words per chapter). One comic can have dozens to hundreds of chapters, so we appreciate long-term cooperation.
The source materials will mainly be in Word documents. A Translation Quality Standard will be provided as a guideline. We pay monthly through Payoneer for the workload submitted in the previous calendar month. The rates can vary from $0.025 to $0.035 per source word, depending on the difficulty of the source texts.
The candidates must have at least 2 years of professional experience in translation, preferably in the entertainment industry, and familiar with Chinese and English slang. You will need to complete and pass a free small test before taking the actual work. For more information, feel free to contact me.
