Looking for Voluntary Translator

Postby studionightbird » Sun 09.06.2009 10:03 pm

CHALLENGE YOURSELF
this isn't scary, and we wont bite, our doors are open for anyone.


My Name is Ricky Murray and I'm working on a project called 'Abnormality'. Its an online series free to watch. Sadly at the moment this production is making no profits, so I have no payments available. How ever I will be more then happy to credit you in the credits for its the least I can do.

We will be converting the voices from English to Japanese.
you can watch the first episode at
Code: Select all
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/479918


Requirements:
-A Microphone
-an account with Skype
visit here:
Code: Select all
http://www.skype.com/intl/en/

-a great understanding in the Japanese language

for the sake of any errors that may come up during Translating we have decided to open 2 spots for this position.

if you are interested in helping out please contact me at studio_nightbird@hotmail.com

Deadline (because of the project still under construction we don't have a deadline at this time)

Looking forward to your replies ;)

I've often wondered why makers of anime-style videos on Newgrounds sometimes add Japanese dubs to their shows when (as far as I know) no Japanese people even know what Newgrounds is. Is it just to add atmosphere and make it more like real anime? Make sure you use good voice actors though -- having it in Japanese just for the sake of having it in Japanese will probably sound worse than in English :?

Cool animation though, I like the story.

the plan is to upload it to a Japanese based website like youtube. We are currently dubbing it in Chinese for our Chinese audience since newgrounds is blocked to the people of china and some of youtube is blocked to china as well.

but yes hope that answers some of your questions.
