Welcome!
Here's your test:
Code:
http://www.mediafire.com/?5f18ogbs3lirb7y
The fonts you have to use are as follows:
Speech - Wild words
Yelling - Wild words bold(or something better if you can improvise)

I don't know if this is ok but I used *somewhat* a variety of fonts... >< I love fonts so... yeah ^^; I know we're supposed to try to stick to a small amount but since this is a test I kind of wanted to try it out... If that's not ok, I can redo the pages! no harm done ^^

**I also kind *sort of* proofreaded/reworded the translations since it was a bit awkward at times... I'm not sure if that was part of the test...? But English's my second language so sorry if it still doesn't make sense ^^







So that's about it... please give me your feedback! I would love to help out with Love so Life if it's possible ^^ Oh and there's also a possibility I might not reply back till the 3rd/4th since I'm leaving for vacation = no internet access!! No

Looks good.
This is an example of an "Un-proofread" script.
In the future, you'll be working with scripts that have barely any mistakes. If you see any, point them out, don't change them. Just in case they're there for a reason, or if the proof reader missed it.
When working on Love So Life, there's a set font list you'll be working with, just a heads up.


Guh, so many typesetters wanting to do Love So Life. We need more cleaners for it now.

We need tran to approve her, and throw all the new typesetters at innocence.

I'm back! Smile

Ok, I understand ^^ It's good to stick to the same fonts for a series Smile

Thank you! ^^

Oh, and if there's too many typesetters for Love So Life, I guess I wouldn't mind typesetting another manga? (I like shoujo ^^) Like Ore no Kouhai ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai? Kuroneko~~

Quick note:
Ore no imouto isn't a shoujo lol. It's a seinen series, aimed at young adult males.

Anyway, if you'd like to do ore no imouto(or now, ore no kouhai), that's great. I'm kind of retiring, so there's barely anyone left to do it (Milkmandan is always busy, and synn is busy too).

If you'd like to practice typesetting the series, that would be great.
Let me know if you want to try it out.

Oh lol yeah, I'm aware of that, I watched the anime XD

Is it possible to do Ore no Kouhai? I'm more of a Kuroneko fan~ bounce
(Aw, why retiring so soon? Crying or Very sad )

And -- do you guys have a certain time limit for a chapter to be finish typesetting?? Surprised

lol, I've been at this for almost half a year now o-o;;
I've completed over 125 releases worth of jobs. It's not really "so soon" Razz

And for ore no kouhai, we actually do have a time line for it. Once it comes out, we rush to get the chapter done within 1-2 days.

Last time, we rushed it. I typeset/proof read the chapter within 1.5 hours of Tran translating it o-o (I cleaned it faster than he translated Razz)

You can take a look at any of our other projects, and ask to see what's up for grabs. (You probably won't want to work on the mature things, like Nozoki Ana or Sun-ken Rock)

Well, talk with some of the other staff, and I'll have Tran make you a staff member.

Wow... 125 releases?! o-o amazing!
What made you decide to call it quits? Surprised

How many pages does Ore no Kouhai tend to have per chapter? (just an estimate? since only 1 chapter's out right now, I think... ? will the next chapter have the same amount of pages? scratch )
Oh, and I hope you don't mind me asking! ^^ - Why does Ore no Kouhai have a set deadline? ^^

around 20 per chapter. 30 at the most.
For ore no kouhai it has a deadline mainly because it's a "popular" series. We have other scanlators breathing down our necks, if we take too long someone is bound to steal it.

As for me retiring, it's mostly my parents who don't want me doing it. I'm still sticking around to play administrator and stuff, sneak in a few cleans here and there, play with the new site, etc.

Oh I see! Wow, the scanlation world's a bit scary

Well... I guess it's good that you'll still be able to stick around here ^^ But it sucks not being able to do what you want =(

I think I'll pass on Ore no Kouhai... Mad I still want to do Love So Life though so if there's any chance that more trans/cleaned scans are ready for typesetting, I don't mind helping out

OMG i'm sorry if i didn't check this ><
but i just noticed it now LOL

Love-xd
i see what you are doing with the fonts, each character has it's own font
but that will indeed kill you =p
you should keep it a bit more simple
like
all speech = 1 font
yelling bubbles= 1 font
sfx = 1font

you don't need to have like so much fonts
reasons are... if you are busy some1 new can easily pick it up for you, if you have too many fonts = GG lol

but yeah thats all i want to say
