PostSubject: Proofreader's Test [temporarily closed]   Mon Apr 04, 2011 11:01 am

I'm reminding you that we require NO EXPERIENCE to be able to help out in proofreading. This test will serve as a guide for both you and me, so that we can improve our understanding of proofreading. xD

Before trying to take the test, I suggest reading up a bit. The following sites contain very important information regarding what you need to do as a proofreader. If you have the time, just go over them.
http://franky-house.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2468
http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=48524

And this site contains basic information, as well as tests and worksheets, about proofreading itself. Personally, I did not ace the tests (10/10, 9/10 and 9/10), I learned a lot about proofreading when I took those tests, as well as how important it is to communicate with the person who created the message. :D So I suggest talking to your translator about the works~
http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/words/writing/proofreading/index.shtml


Now we head onto the test~! The .rar file provided is a zip of an original script given by the translator. It is password protected because I want to get to know the people who are interested in taking the test. PM me to get the password, and I'll guide you along (or you can guide me since it takes skill and knowledge to be able to proofread)

With Dark_Pride and ☆Caramel☆ as the last ones to take the proofreading position, I'm sad to inform everyone that we will now close the proofreader position x3

For all interested proofreaders, you can try quality checking. I can guide you through the cleaning process and the typesetting process ^^




Since we are planning more projects, we are opening a few slots for proofreaders ^^
pword: ""
Pm me afterwards ^^



Closing it again since our proofreaders are becoming active xD
