So Tech gave me the go-signal to make some announcements that will ease the way towards our transition into a newly-formed team.
By newly-formed, that means there will be some restructuring… rebranding… rethinking… redirection-ing… and re\VAMPing.
Yup. We’re re-building the site and the group from the ground up. And if you’re wondering what NGNL has to do with any of that – well let’s just say that there’s a big something that has to do with NGNL and us going serious (look somewhere in this post if you seriously want a hint).
And that something has much to do with Tech going around AX mentioning that we were planning on doing a certain something. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time, but involves quite a bit of concentration and maturity as a translator. And after 5 years of translating pron, I think we’ve come full circle to doing a big project like this. By that, I mean that we’ll be working on non-pron as well – and this particular project is NOT PRON. We’re big boys now, so we’ll act like it (when necessary).
Yes, the key word there is BIG. So there’s quite a lot to look forward to. Along with this will be, as Kita mentioned in his previous post, a lot of changes… including one that may re-name us all together. That’s a lot of “RE’s” for one post, but it’s something that has pretty much shaped us to the group we are today. Like I said in an old staff note before, Tech is out to rule the world – go on and help the man. We’ll be recruiting people en masse – newbies welcome, but if you have experience, the better. This goes for both translators and editors. You need to be able to give some time, because we’re gonna be doing serious bizness. Also, we want a mascot – a pretty one. If you’ve got skills as an illustrator or artist and want to help out, please throw us an email. We’ll pay you with translations of your choice!
So in advance, we’d like to thank everyone for the support up until now, and we hope to continue bringing you only the best translations of uncompromising quality.
Hint: It’s nothing like doing manga translations. We sure as hell won’t be working on animu, so what else is left out there for us to translate from NGNL? Hmm…
