PostSubject: Proofreading   Tue Jun 14, 2011 9:03 am

Hello,

I read on your recruitment page that you are looking for new proofreaders. Since I am a proofing addict and grammar nazi currently working at Death Toll Scans, I was hoping to get some work here. My method of proofing is as follows:
1. I download the translation and the raws for a chapter onto my PC where I can compare the translation to the raws while I proofread the translation.
2. All changes I make to a translation will be in red immediately below the translated text.
3. On each page, panels of text are separated from each other by a long red line, text bubbles within a panel are separated by an empty line. I use two long red lines to separate one page from another.
4. My finished proof is available as a download attachment to a message I post.

I devised this format in order to make the typesetter's job easier.

Please use (Or abuse) me whenever you want.

Alrighty, let's hope for another successful applicant ><
I don't know if I've read anything from Death Toll, so I can't say I've seen what you can do. I suppose I should go over there...

I've done the proofreading test and I've saved it in Rich Text Format. How or where on this site can I attach it to a post? Or, as an alternative, where can I e-mail it to?
